Yeah, I certainly wasn't agreeing with it It's not any form of 'strong' philosophical ideal I hold or anything, just what I came up with thinking on choice, 'free beings' and the like... I'd love for this line of thinking to be refuted, (or at least, able to be seen as only 1 possibility amongst a number) I don't really like the thought of it

I don't know that anything is necessarily 'determined' before it happens though - can something be said to be determined when it is comprehensively impossible to *actually* determine it? I would tend to suggest that existence should be seen as the determining process. Although the total when you roll 2 dice is fixed by your physical action and the environment, it is not actually 'determined' until the dice stop rolling...
