“The Fate System” / Memorable Fancies #1785

[“Why should not the initial and terminal states of a system be connected by a natural law, which does not cover the intermediary state?” – Wittgenstein]

Fate as classically described is an example of this. Whatever you do, whatever happens in the meantime, however much you squirm or run, the dreaded event will come upon you.

When you complain, the gods shrug and mutter something about “natural law,” and how that glibly explains everything and so please just shut up.
