WHATpeople who expect a change

There is no random. If all information of the position, weight, air resistance to the nearest particle, etc. of a spinner were known when you flicked it, you could know where it would land. If all these hypothetical conditions were exactly the same when you flicked it again, you would get the same outcome.
From all information, you could divine more information.
Information is never destroyed, only transformed.
The human brain is merely a biological machine. All processes we associate with soul are demonstrated somewhere in the brain.
If there is no random, what comes out of a machine is determined by 1) how the machine works and 2) what goes into it.
The contents of a human brain and consequential actions due to these contents are determined by 1) how the individual's brain works and 2) what goes in, including both personal experience and any transformations of one form of thought into another by that individual's perception.
Everything you think or will think could be hypothetically predicted by the function of your individual brain and the experiences that went into it.
Even if, as you read this, you choose to think something different than you might have, that choice is due to perception of this information, written here in text, that went in, and the function of your brain, which chose to react with this thought.
We are technically "predestined" because of this.

^^ Yeah. There's a surprise."Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
