Damn, Rod Serling, I thought you were dead.Thinking about these types of things brings to mind the existence, or not, of a " Multiverse". Every second of every day 9 billion humans make decisions that affect the course of lives, theirs and others. The timeline they are in at those moments is forever altered by each decision. The timeline going forward would have looked different had they made a different decision and every downstream event would be further altered. Do THOSE timelines exist? Is this what Deja-Vu is? Our vestigial consciousness of events in a parallel timeline? The feeling of " Having done that, or experienced that", before?
How about if the comets/asteroids had NOT hit the planet around 12,500 BC and the great flood and subsequent Ice Age not happened? What would our world look like today?
What if we had not cracked the Enigma Code in WW2? If the Germans had learned of the D Day plans in advance? So much of what we know as "The Future" rests on ordinary acts of random people. Our existence is so dependent upon forces that we cannot control.
Correct, we ain't steering this ship. He is.
