All right, I've been a determinist for a couple of years now (even before I was aware of the word and all philosophic theories surrounding the subject). And now, or at least very recently, two interesting questions has popped up in my head:

1. If you, theoretically, rewound time (how long doesn't matter). Would everything look the very same way as it does today when the same amount of time once again had passed?

2. If there were several universes with no time dimension who consisted of the very same materials to begin with that were arrenged the exact same way, would they look exactly the same after time starts passing by (assuming there was life there to begin with), or would people and/or animals decisions be different in each universe, causing them to look different?

 

Of course this is all just speculative and there are no right or wrong, but share your thoughts! ^^

 

(And yes, I'm aware of the quantum randomness theories, but that's not proof in any direction.)

The only fate I believe in is a beautiful girl so called.



AstroMaSSi rules

fate kind of exists, though it wasn't "planned" or anything like that

The universe is just a sea of elementary particles that adhere to strict laws of physics. Nothing will ever change how they behave, therefore their behavior is infinitely predictable.

Even things that appear random, like human free will and decision making, are illusions and really just the product of complex systems, which behave according to the laws of physics.

Looks like we share the exact same thoughts! =)

Life = One big ass chain reaction on particle levels.

That's very inspiring. Thank you Galaki!



You make your own fate



Nope. But random chance does - sometimes it feels like fate. It isn't.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

That's a very interesting subject, and I'm not saying that you're wrong or I'm right, but: If you rewound time, wouldn't the same result reoccur?

Chaos Thoery would imply not - although of course it's just a theory.  It would also depend on what you mean by rewind time.  If you could skip back in time then I'd say not at all as the effect of your skip back would likely introduce change.  Not sure how you'd rewind time as such so can't say much more beyond that.
