While Fadi was sitting in the garden next to an apple tree, relaxing in a sunny day and contemplating life. Suddenly, his sight caught a red appealing apple just a little bit away of his full length hand. The red apple image resided in his memory as a tasty good food poppped up to his head, and without even making a conscious decision, some chemical reaction took place in his brain according to the data at hand, and a neural signal got transmitted to his body to move slightly so that his hand can pick up that apple. Unlike Newton who discovered the law of gravity when an apple hit the ground infront of him, Fadi, starting forming a perception of how this world works – as if we, human beings, being destined with no real choices.
To him, his brain tried to reason his moves to eat that apple. He has a sight sense that he never chose. He had this taste sense he never picked. His taste sense labelled the taste of a red apple to be good and saved it in his memory that he didn’t pick either. His memory still works fine, and it was easy for him to remember that apples taste good, otherwise, it would have taken him much more time to decide whether to pick that apple and eat it or not.
Now that he finished his apple, he looked at the horizon and asked himself: how decisions are really made? Reading some scientific stuff before, and remembering how scientists explain that the triggering of neural signals is a result of a chemical reactions in brain. Remembering his chemistry class, and the nature of chemical reactions, he tried to figure out the left hand side of the equation of the reaction which took place in order for him to decide to pick that apple. i e. He tried to list all the factors that helped getting to this result.
While examining the factors, he realized that each single one of them was a result of a previous reaction and each previous reaction was a result of another previous one. It is a chain of reactions that goes back to what scientists call now the big bang.
From some memory rooms in his head, he remembered that there is a scientific law for conservation of energy, it says: Energy can not be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another. His brain cells worked, and he concluded that if the world is one entity, then there should be no energy coming in or going out of this world, and thus if God and souls exists, they are either energy that are part of this world, or a spiritual beings that has no effect on this world.
Maybe God have planned and set it all, and now the movie is running. Our souls are the eyes of God that witnesses how our lives are going. Everything is set and done since the dawn of time, the chain reaction is going, and we are witnessing where it is heading.
Fadi, amused by his conclusion, he wanted to share it with other people he knows. He knew that they wouldn’t like the idea of them realizing not having the power to really decide what goes on in their lives. He knew that they would say that if that is, then it is okay for us to go lazy, and it is okay for us to kill and steal because we are destined to do it.
He stops for a moment, then tell them, no dears, you are not destined for that. Each one of you is destined for a certain thing, and life will unfold that for him. Just open your eyes and observe it coming.
