|that the packages with bike stuff and what not were destined to arrive to you...that all of them that you are due to receive in your lifetime are in a wearhouse, already in a box with your name and future address on it, waiting to be shipped at the right time when you are lets say 52 years 2 months and 5 days old. I get this idea every time I get a package now... its pretty weird.

|Just kidding. I am not talking about that type of wearhouse. Feelings, its all about the feelings! Peace

|That you were meant to learn about the packages waiting for you in a warehouse from a bulletin board that had a post waiting to be made...
Oh never mind.

|Woof you are scary. Predestined bike stuff? Think of the implications. |
You are doomed ahead of time to die from head injuries incurred while
chasing parked cars! Bad dog! Now, go back and get in your dog house.

|No way to refute determinism. Anything you say, they will counter that you were destined to say that...
Defendant to the judge: "But, it was determined that I would steal the car -- I could not help it."
Judge: "Ok, then it is determined that I will sentence you to 10 years in jail -- I can not help it."

|that the people in the mirror at spin class are not really your reflection but cyclists from a parallel cold weather universe? Kind of like good Captain Kirk and the evil anti-Kirk. If we could step through the mirror and talk to them what would they say?|

|If so, deep within the cavernous data vaults of RBR's infrastructure contains all of our future posts that we will someday write here. All we have to do is logon and these posts materialize within our thoughts and we simply type them in, typo's and all. This of course means the technology that we write about has yet to be invented and used on bikes is also recorded within RBR's vast drive arrays. This in itself is not so spectacular compared to their ability to fold the fabric of time or time travel to retrieve such data... Then again, you might be doing too much acid!

|Back in the Reformation, the Calvinists tried to base a religion on this kind of thinking, but they never really got past one fundamental problem. If my going to heaven is predetermined, why bother being good and righteous and sin-free? If I have no say in the matter, why worry about it?
So, if all that stuff is sitting in a warehouse waiting to ship at some predetermined point, why bother ordering it? It will come anyway, right?
And stuff that you may buy in the future that hasn't been invented yet? How do you explain that?

|But the stuff HAS been invented! Everything exists in some giant extra-temporal matrix. Don't you watch |
Star Trek? The Calvinists and Muslims have never gotten past more than one problem! But then they
didn't have Spock, Kirk, and Dog to help them out!
|Spock, Kirk, and Dog?||mr_spin|

|What happened to McCoy? Did the good doctor get replaced by a lawyer? This is so wrong. Oh well. I guess that's what's happening to health care in this century....

|bark-laughing. This is a great thread. Anyway....
I've heard that about Reformation. So, do you think if a mouse steals a piece of Christ's body we will have mice in heaven? How about the criminals? Sin actually means being apart from God. Too bad Protestants moralized it. I always wondered how come we are sinful the second we are born? Enough of this religious crap.
Jon below just explained the invented stuff part. Why bother ordering it? Well, I do it through a credit card, so it feels as if I didn't even order it. But in a week you open your mailbox, and there it is... Indeed, scary. Heck, I don't even begin with letters!
Woof the acid-dawg.
P.S. I never done any drugs. Can you believe that with like half the people around me smokin' crack.

|With your small canine cortex you can't comprehend that it's ALL illusion anyway, including your credit card and your bike. Which is why |
I'm a Buddhist (not)! And here you thought it was your bad acid.
