# To realize is to realize, 1.3

.

The ultimate self-fulfilling prophecies:

1. free will or not

2. god or no god

3. afterlife or not

4. future spouse exists or not

.

Why self-fulfilling?

2. god or no god

.

Whether “god” exists or not depends on your definition of the word “god”.

.

In some definitions, god does not exist, because of the definitions’ self-contradictory nature. For example, god is good but he wants you to suffer for no reason.

.

In some definitions, god is possible to exist. For example, a god is any being that has a higher level of consciousness than a human being.

We can say that a human being’s consciousness is higher than a dog’s, in the sense that a human can understand things that a dog cannot. For example, most dogs do not understand what a computer is.

Similarly, a dog’s consciousness is higher than an ant’s. An ant’s consciousness is higher than a tree’s. A tree’s consciousness is higher than a rock’s.

In the opposite direction, it is highly possible that in this universe, there are beings that have a higher level of consciousness than human beings. It is highly unlikely that human beings are the highest beings.

Even within the human being species itself, different people can have different levels of consciousness. Even within a single person’s lifetime, one can be at different levels at different ages.

.

In some definitions, god can exist. You become that god.

In those cases, whether god exists or not depends on whether YOU are willing to become that god, taking up his responsibilities.

# To realize is to realize, 1.2.2

So in theory, there is no free will, because the future is already fixed, by the physical laws.

.

However, even if we knew the exact physical laws, it would be still logically impossible to get all the data of the present state of the whole universe, because it is logically impossible for any observer to observe itself, with 100% details, directly. For example, no camera can take a picture of itself directly.

So “in practice”, which is actually also “in principle”, there is free will, because logically, no one can predict, with 100% accuracy, your future actions.

.

In one logical sense, the future is already fixed, so there is no free will. In another logical sense, the future is fixed, but no observer can know that “fixed future” with 100% accuracy, so there is free will.

As a result, whether you label your actions are due to “free-will” or “not-free-will” has no real consequence. In other words, whether there is free will or not has no meaningful difference.

The difference that makes no difference makes no difference.

So you can actually transcend the free will problem altogether. You can just ignore it and live your life.

Or, you can somehow capitalize on this freedom of labelling your (future) life as either fixed or free, depending which label is more beneficial for you in a particular situation.

For example, when you are highly under pressure, you know that everything is fixed by the physical laws, from god’s point of view. When you are highly above pressure, you know that you are partially responsible for creating your own reality, because the future is not fixed for any one observer, for there is no “god’s point of view”.

You have the flexibility to label it in one way or another.

# To realize is to realize, 1.2

For example, when you ask “how to be a polite person”, you become a polite person.

In other words, when you realize that you should be a polite person, that polite person is realized at that moment.

.

The ultimate self-fulfilling prophecies:

1. free will or not

2. god or no god

3. afterlife or not

4. future spouse exists or not

.

Why self-fulfilling?

1. free will or not

If we knew the exact physical laws and all the data of the present state of the universe, we would be able to predict, with 100% accuracy, the state of the universe at any future moment.

.

In theory, the exact physical laws exist, whether we know them or not. Also, in theory, all the details of the present state of the universe exist, whether we know them or not.

So in theory, there is no free will, because the future is already fixed, by the physical laws.

.

However, even if we knew the exact physical laws, it would be still logically impossible to get all the data of the present state of the whole universe, because it is logically impossible for any observer to observe itself directly. For example, no camera can take a picture of itself directly.

So “in practice”, which is actually “in theory”, there is free will, because logically, no one can predict, with 100% accuracy, your future actions.

# To realize is to realize, 1.1

realize

1. (transitive) To become aware of

2. (formal, transitive) To make real

— Wiktionary

.

Sometimes, just realization itself is already a realization.

Realization has two meanings.

Sometimes, when you realize something, you realize that something at that very moment.

“The accident left him without hands and mostly deaf and blind when he was 19.”

“Heim had to undergo a series of operations after the explosion which resulted in the loss of his arms. He found that intense concentration on the study of Einstein’s relativity theory helped him control the pain in his arms mentally and physically.”
