I only have a few things to say on this subject
Xemu(TM) is a registered trade mark of the Church of Scientology.
My opinions in no way reflect the opinions of the church of
Scientology in any way (I hope). I simply borrowed it for the sake of
convenience. Scientologists... them wacky guys.
- I assert that in order for there to be a true destiny, it would have to
be sentient. If destiny is not sentient, than it is merely a perspective
that, without any sort of predictable direction, makes no difference. The
only thing worth knowing about this theoretical entity is its motives,
desires etc. As a perspective, destiny is something that we can only know
once we have survived it. In this sense destiny is simply "the past" and
it really makes no difference if it exists or not. I suppose it is
possible that certain truths may be shown to us after death (if indeed
there is an "after death"). Destiny is merely relative.
- Thus I may or may not be the unwitting puppet of an all powerful
omnipotent pan-galactic entity.
- If I am, I really don't want to know about it. I am perfectly happy to
think that I do things because I want to do them and not because Xemu(TM),
Lord of the galaxy commands me to.
- On the other hand, if my every move were controlled by Xemu(TM), Lord
of the Galaxy, I would by inference actually BE Xemu(TM), Lord of the
Galaxy. That would be a fairly impressive thing to put on a resume.
