Here is some philosophical quantum physics for you: Fate and its possibilities through a variety of setups.
For some illogical (?) reason I believe that certain things are supposed to happen in life, one way or another. But the setup and the machinations that lead to them are not written down. Fate is nothing but a rough sketch. The details are filled up by the players. Us.
For example, if a woman is supposed to get married at a certain age (in order to open a new chapter in her life), she would get married, but there might be 2 or 3 or 4 men who would be competing for the position *without* any of the parties knowing about it. Each one would just live their lives, but depending on their choices, they would be the ones meeting up with the woman (and eventually marrying her) while the others wouldn’t. The others would remain completely unaware of the woman forever, even if fate had offered them a close chance with her.
The problem arises when someone actually becomes aware of the situation. When someone truly feels inside his head that if he makes certain changes in his life, things will change in a radical way (further than the direction he makes changes to). And the things become even more complicated when he “feels” that there’s indeed such competition, and sees and recognizes the said competition, but it’s so far away from the strings he controls, that he can’t do anything to stop these threads of possibilities.
This my friends would be mental torture. To know that you tried your best, but still end up as the loser, just because someone else was able to get a small step ahead of you.
I always try to make people around me see the big picture, but that type of big picture, no one should ever have to know. IF any of that quantum physics crap is real, we are better off living in total unawareness.
