Control and Cause and Effect
People either feel controlled and oppressed or feel in control and are oppressors. As an absolute determinist, I know that control is illusory.
Cause and effect reflects this. A red snooker ball may feel controlled and oppressed by the cue ball which strikes it, the cue ball may feel in control. If time were reversed, the red would appear to be in control. When these impact events occur, is there a cause, an effect, or any control by any party?
Einstein's General Relatively showed that time is a dimension, and that the future, like the past, must necessarily be laid out. This proves determinism, yet a century later the world still barely accepts this despite its overt and very rigorous proof.
