Greetings everyone! I have been reading ATS for a long time and finally decided to write. For my first post I would like to share my view of the
Universe we are living in.
In this Universe there is no choice or uncertainty. There is no randomness but only cause and effects, factors and circumstances. I believe that
everything can be predicted and put into equation with the right resources, down to the most meaningless events such as one scratching is head or
Simply look at how the very beginning: the Big Bang. It followed a set rules of laws of physics, matter propulsed and cooling down, stars and planets.
If a scientist was there with a supercomputer, he could probably have predicted what, where and when.
The creation of the Earth also follow same immuable rules, how life appeared isn't a random act. If a comet brought life to Earth, it was meant to,
because what made the comet took off was as well a set of causes and effects, it's trajectory followed sets of laws and the Earth happened to be on
Life and evolution aren't random as well. The composition and environments of the planet dictated what life forms would emerge and evolve eventually
creating us, humans.
The human factor
Elephants have tusks, bears have claws, birds have wings and our main asset is our brain. Many believe that mankind has a right of superiority
because of this illusion called Choice.We have to understand how the body and specially our brain functions. We are just a set of electrical and
chemical reactions, again pointing to predictible cause and effect.
When someone "feels" like doing something, it is not a choice. Feelings are not choice but chemical events in our body. What triggers them are
genetics and memories going back to childhood. With the right tools and data it is theorically possible to predict one's behaviour in any
Simply observe your actions throughout the day, you will realise that you do things because
of something. Even when trying to prove a point
and do something irrational, that is only how you were supposed to think at the time, how your neurones are shaped and made you do this. If tomorrow
you cross the path of a long lost friend, it won't be a coincidence, just that X and Y made you collide at this point in time
Everything that happens around us already exists
and Time is still. I like to think of the snooker player with his computer. He wants to
calculate where the balls will go after he hit the white, he knows the strength, direction, points of impacts and can accurately predict what the
table will look like. It is similar for the Universe but with much more data to consider. From the very beginning of the Universe, it would have been
possible to know that I would be here today writing on this forum.
I came to this conclusion after I realized that the Future can't be changed. As my name suggests I have some psychic gifts and can sometimes see
through the window of the future. I will share my visions soon but on a different forum
