I had a dream last night that I’m still fuzzy about but I know there was 2 solar eclipses in it. My friend says its to fore warn me… and I will take that as a fore warning. So I’m gonna try to not do anything incredibly stupid… but at what point does it become a self fulfilling prophecy? Sometimes the path you take to try to avoid something becomes a direct path to it. The quantum causality of such events are amazing to check and hypothesize about. However, when you become the guini pig it becomes a bit weirder.
In seeing your own future do you then change the future or solidify it? Is time/fate rigid or is it pliable? Is time really linear? or is it how we have learned to perceive it. I ask these questions often. Unfortunately I don’t typically have people to talk it over with. At what point does an over analytical mind become over analytical? And also detrimental to its own being?
What I am looking at is I have 3 definite options and one extra as an extended variable. What if I choose door number 2? Did I ever really have the choice or was it just the perception of free will. Just like… if I was to send a message to myself 6 years ago in the past… would I be in a different place now? would I want to risk changing how I experienced so much? This stuff is pretty heavy…
“First, the human mind, including consciousness and reflective thought, can be explained by activities of the central nervous system, which, in turn, can be reduced to the biological structure and function of that physiological system. Second, biological phenomena at all levels, can be totally understood in terms of atomic physics, that is, through the action and interaction of the component atoms of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and so forth. Third, and last, atomic physics, which is now understood most fully by means of quantum mechanics, must be formulated with the mind as a primitive component of the system." - Harold J. Morowitz, Rediscovering the Mind (1980)”—
