Musings - Is Free Will Just A Future Option Call - Poem by Paul Warren

As we progress through this life
There are tipping points away from strife
So if the fates guide us through it all
Is free will just a future option call

But are we still guided along the path as slated
And so it may not be that complicated
Perhaps each door that opens up
Means one is closed so the plan will not corrupt

The plan may be you don't get what you wanted
And so the end may be not what you touted
The fates will I suppose have their way
And your free will options are left to waste away.

    One of my current foci of research is free will. Both philosophically and quantum physically. Causality negates it on the Newtonian level but the uncertainty of quantum physics seems to negate determinism. Fate on the other hand is a broadly defined concept and linked to both. Musings are a good way of ferreting out pieces. Thanks, Paul (Report) Reply
