Here I try to compare time flow like a river.

Throwing Stones

Once I used to say this-
I have to believe that free will is existant otherwise there'd be no point in living.

Yet I know this-
Things happen for a reason- one action causes a reaction (action->reaction)

Now I think this-
Time is like an ever flowing stream. It is the little unbiased choices we make that fall like pebbles and stones into a strong current. Whether or not they change the flow of time- is irrelevant. What is important is that we do throw those stones and we do choose to stand for our beliefs, even though we might not change the flow of time nonetheless.

  I like the ambition of the writing and its willingness to go with the flow if the trial ground pans. I lovew to throw stones and bash the hypocritical .

  An interesting and new way to look at the "flow" of time so to speak. I appreciate you putting this here and showing the world your views. I found this very interesting and I agree with nicelyj, I can't say I agree or disagree, I can simply say that it is thought provoking. Thanks again.

  A philosopher in the house Thanks for sharing this, I think these are thought-provoking ideas that you present. I won't say that I agree or disagree. I'll just say that I choose to appreciate the thought that you put into sharing this, and hope that the pebble I've tossed causes a positive ripple.

  I agree with morreeladelamortelos, or whatever, I am surprised anyone else is up right now, sorry if my comment is messed up, I am a bit tired right now.
