Rando: So if I understand you correctly, then you DO equate "destiny" with "autopilot/no choices"? Hmm... I consider the possibility of "smoke screens"... that what you think may be "choices" and "branches" are actually "dotted lines" on the flowchart... they exist, but it has been already decided on the course of action that you will ultimately take. In other words: it's an illusion. I don't think fate "offers one path"; it IS one path but can give you a glimpse of other paths. Again, I don't see it as "must be this way automatically with no chance to see other choices".
