Re: Ch. 12 - Lieutenant Mamiya's Long Story: Part I
On knowing your fate: Imagine someone told you where and/or when you would die. Do you think this would chance how you life your life? Definitely I would avoid the place mentioned, though fiction has convinced me that trying to avoid fate is a fool's game! I watched a movie a while ago, Paycheck (which I was personally not fond of to say the least), and at one point they discuss the idea that knowing the future removes hope. For some reason this idea really caught my attention and I thought about it for some time. I think I would agree... even if you learn something great, knowing what will happen, and believing it for certain, takes something away from an individual. You can't hope for anything more. I imagine it must feel very binding.
