The Future

  1. Oct 8, 2005 #1
    This is a big one. Who believes that our future's are not yet written and who believes that our fates are already written in time waiting to be told. I thought about this when I was watching an episode of the sci-fi series Red Dwarf, where they discuss the future and a there is a machine that can predict it with extraordinary accuracy. I mean who knows if we are going to be hit by a bus tommorrow, is it written our do we make our own fate? What are your thoughts and feelings towards the future and how it's written??

    i'd thought about that ages ago as well...

    ...waves of thought reverberating thorugh the echoverse

    with deja vu being the universe calculating a future event you will have based on extrapolating trends at the time of your conception and providing a snapshot in your consciousness which is probabaly outside of any 4d temporal reference...

    like blipverts in commercial advertising. Remember the porn sequence inserted in fight club...

    My subjective belief : Yes to both. It is written, and at the same time we do make our own fate (but the fate that we make was pre-determined) :smile:
