    It would take decades of research to understand all the principles though. It's hypothetical. It won't happen in our lifetime.
    The thing is, it is like virtual machines where you can take snapshots.

    State A (original)

    Snapshot 1 (from State A original, like a clone), you can run something against it and see how it works.

    State A moves on to State B based on external influence

    Snapshot 1, should be disregarded and make a new snapshot of State B. So we are back to a new version of a Snapshot 1

    What would happen in your scenario is this: Snapshot 1, run external influence against it, make Snapshot 2, run a new external influence against it. Snapshot 3.

    However State B doesn't necessarily represent Snapshot 2 because it might have been influenced differently. If it was exactly the same type of influence in the same order, then I can understand that the tracking would be similar and predictable, but it highly unlikely. Those small influences adds up a ton in the future.

    edit: my point is, you can only predict a small amount of the future of what will happen, but sooner or later it will become clear that they will run separate paths eventually. Almost like parallel universes.

    Very original, also impressively naive.

    from someone who has actual experience with severe depression, can honestly say your view is completely wrong. I'd suggest education on the subject

    It's a special talent to have an off-topic and hostile derailment moved from the Random Thought thread. But it ends now. Thanks!

    I think that one can just take on any face you can imagine.

    So posting your good deeds on facebook sort of washes away the value of them. Do a good deed for the sake of it- not to show off, eh?
