Ok, ladies and gents. Saw a picture that really got me thinking about Destiny again. Just another day in the life of me. 🙂
I read this quote:
We Are Caught In An Inescapable Network of Mutuality, Tied in a Single Garment of Destiny. Whatever Affects One Directly, Affects All Indirectly. – Martin Luther King Jr., Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 16, 1963
I agree with that last quote to a certain extent. I believe Every Event has a Ripple Effect that Affects the Rest of the Universe. What I don’t agree with is that we are all “Tied in a Single Garment of Destiny.” Lets say there exists a set that consists of infinite unique parallel universes. Each universe is governed by “Destiny.” Although the universes are unique, each corresponding existing entity across universes are still the same entity, regardless of cosmetics and/or varying individual thoughts. Now, establishing those assumptions, we can infer that each universe is unique as a result of Action and Events occurring, both with subsequent rippling effects. But if Destiny dictates the path for any entity’s span of existence, there should be a duplication of consecutive occurrences for a particulary entity from start to end in a number of parallel universes. That contradicts our assumption that each universe is unique since entity’s across universes share the same fate.
A counter argument can be thrown that each entity in their respective universe shares a different Destiny. If that is the case, then TWO things can be deduced from that: 1. Destiny Decides Your Fate; 2. You Have Absolutely Lost Control of Your Life, …so when did that happen? o_0
