This is what happens to someone
who carelessly makes hurried
and bombastic declarations of
that takes place is determined
with absolute accuracy by the Natural Law".
We have been led to conclusions
which are very difficult to accept.
This absolute predestination
for everything that
happens in the
Cosmos, starts to become really
Is it possible that the universe is
predetermined in such a way?
You might say: why not.
There is absolutely no freedom.
Neither for atoms, nor for bees and nor for us.
This is so and we must accept it.
Whether we like it or not.
We accept other things too that we don’t like.
As death for example.
We must accept that as well.
We do not yet know enough
nor do we have the
courage to draw
the necessary logical conclusions from
the little that we do know.
We do not like the idea of
being not only totally
insignificant in the
Cosmos but also absolutely predetermined,
and therefore we reject it.
But in reality this is exactly the case.
Whatever happens was fated,
and whatever we
do in the belief that we
made a decision ourselves, we had to do it
that way so that what was predetermined
in fact happened.
For this opinion of an absolute predestination
of all events there
are fairly widespread
beliefs expressing exactly the same thing:
The inevitability of fate.
"Το πεπρωμένον φυγείν αδύνατον".
Escaping destiny is impossible.
But of course not even the most faithful
supporter of this
view would come
to the point of saying:
I’m not getting up to get a drink
because if it is
my fate to die
of thirst it is pointless to try
to oppose destiny.
I perform no action anymore,
I think no thoughts,
I make no decisions.
