I did an essay on Fate and what it means.
I want to show it to y'all and debate about if what I said is valid or not and why
Fate. a very strange and illusive word, a word with meaning? or is just a title of something that is not exactly real?
definition of fate; the development of events beyond a person's control, regarded as determined by a supernatural power.
definition of fate as the Greeks use it; three goddesses who presided over the birth and life of humans.
Each person's destiny was thought of as a thread spun, measured, and cut by the three Fates, Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos.
Also called Moirai and Parcae.
Those are just definitions, what about what it is in the real world? or is it really existing and not just a myth?
If fate means a pre determind series of events, then isn't it just physics?
If I were to drop a pencil onto a piece of paper and it falls, hits the paper, and makes a dot,
then based of of the definition of fate couldn't I say,
it is the fate of the pencil to fall when released from what is securing it from the ground, and hit the paper making a dot?
is fate an action? without action is fate nothing?
I'm not moving, is it fate for me to not move?, but I'm desiding not to move.
fate means; The development of events beyond a person's control.
It's not fate if I drop a pencil and it hits a paper making a dot because the pencil is in my control.
so where does the law of fate rule?
It is not fate if I climb a tree and as i'm doing so I fall out of the tree, because fate is-according to it's definition-a series of events
Since falling is only one event, since it takes a series of events to be defined as fate, even if i couldn't control my fall I still climb the tree;
thus Fate does not exist.
