I got to thinking about Free Will and The Law Of Unforeseen Consequences. Free Will is the ultimate form of democracy. Each of us can do pretty much as we please providing we don’t interfere with someone else’s enjoyment of life. The Law Of Unforeseen Consequences or The Butterfly Effect arises because our personal decision to do something causes a change in future events or a different path to be taken. There are lots of examples: Adam’s decision to eat the apple caused mankind to be kicked out of the Garden Of Eden. Lots has been written on our choice to invade Iraq. Opinions exist on both sides as to the importance / dumbness of that decision. Sometimes we get dragged into things that have nothing to do with us. Millions of people lost their lives in WW11 because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. If Free Will didn’t exist what would we do with our time??? Some people have said that they are not interested in going to Heaven because it would be too, too boring if Free Will didn’t exist. Perhaps if we didn’t have any havoc in our life none of us would have any use for God. For instance most of us are only interested in God if we can’t get out of our personal poo under our own steam. Perhaps a little grief in our lives is good for the soul. No grief, no soul development. Interesting thought!!
