We all like to beleive that we are the Masters of our own Fate. But cultures around the world and down the ages have all felt quite differently.
Fate may or may not be the plaything of the Gods. But, for YOU, Little Ant, that hardly matters much.
So this week we take a look at the Morai and that thread they've been weaving for us. Then there's Karma and Kismet to consider.
And right up to modern times, philosophers continue to argue about just what Fate is, and how it differs from Fatalism, Determinism ... and about a dozen other "isms" that all describe what you CAN'T Do.
Be well! Do good! Enjoy the show!
