Think of it this way, everyone you meet or hear of is actually you, replaying the game with different settings and starting conditions
@joeld been thinking about this a lot recently. Kinda falls in line with not having free will in my mind. It helps me be more understanding of people who react differently in situations. Do you feel this can stifle motivation? That's been one questions I've had that I have not answered.
@shaggy I think we’re on the same wavelength. More important than our will is our desires. We have them and will act on them whether we believe in free will or not. I get that determinism is kind of a buzzkill, but it’s important to then step back and ask yourself, what are all the things *I* want *right now*?
