We make the daily choices but the life lessons we are here to learn seem to get steered onto a certain path.
order forms from disorder, if looked at closely even chaos will form a pattern. the method to the madness on a universal scale.


I can’t help but feel that we are all connected and the beliefs and intentions of the majority are steering the ship.
that connection is the answer to all questions and the path to true freedom, and deep enough for a multi-series book collection to explain, so, at the risk of sounding like a hippy throwback or completely insane ill stop here...lol

Physicists tie chaos and order to available energy. As energy decreases, order increases. This seems to fly in the face of entropy theory, which states that highly-ordered systems can only evolve randomly into chaos. In other words, you can thread a nut on a bolt and toss it in a box. Shake the box and sooner or later the nut has unthreaded itself and fallen off. But if you put a separate nut and bolt in a box, you could shake it for eternity and the nut will never thread itself onto the bolt.

Order, Chaos, randomness, these things are dependent on scale in our world, and behave differently at different scales; both physical and temporal. Determinism, which is what we are really talking about here, can exist outside of any and all analogies in the physical world. It is the world of ethics and truth, of love and hate, of hope and despair. So far these concepts have resisted all attempts to assign reasonable algorithms to them. They lie outside of the math of chaos and order theory.

Eventually, trillions of years in the future, the universe will undergo what has been referred to as the "Heat Death of the Universe" when the last photon is emitted from the last particle reaction. That will be the ultimate state of everything forever more in this reality. A dark universe devoid of any energy and light at all.

Now there's a depressing thought for a Monday morning!

Destiny versus Fate versus Freedom of choice and how the dice roll in the cosmos i dont think will be explained by physicists for quite a while....lol... i use a lot of metaphors at times i know, and that may be confusing to some. this "world" is different than the known world. and science, in all its greatness, can become a roadblock or stopping point for most. an example would be when you hear of kids or youth having abilities that are lost over time due to "life" happening. learning or being taught boundaries or what is possible and what is not. some things just have to be what they are, no explanation needed. the story is always the same, "no one can do that", but then someone always does...lol.
