Some real a.m. ink.

Well, this might be the first time I've actually posted in the morning as I had intended. The purpose of posting in the morning was supposed to be to motivate me to get out of bed. I just could never remember. I'm not sure why I'm awake at this hour, but I am, and I thought I'd write. This helps clear my head from the billions of thoughts I have everyday. It would probably be better to post at night. Actually, when I think about it, that's probably not a good idea. Night is when I'm most dramatic and I over react to situations. I'd be taking a lot of things off the record if I wrote them down here when I was like that. It'd be good entertainment for my readers though.

Moving right along...

I've been thinking about how destructive it can be to one's life to believe that your life has already been written and there's nothing you can do about it. If you think that you can't change your life, then you also believe that you can't make real mistakes because it wasn't really your choice. You then don't feel real contrition for your sins and can not have a true conversion.

That is something that bothered me about time travel movies. Did you see that Ben Affleck movie "Paycheck"? Very entertaining. His character built a machine that could see the future. How can you see something that isn't there? And he saw the future and didn't like it so he took some steps to change it. However, if the machine really worked, wouldn't it have seen what he was going to do all along? It just didn't fit.

Okay, just some food for thought.
