As you journey along the path you meet an old man.
He tells you that modern neuroscience has proved
that all our Edens and decisions are merely the
machinations of a predetermined universe and that
our concept of free will ' is naught but a comforting
illusion.
If you agree with his hypothesis, turn to page 72

am i really the only one who doesn't see the illusion in this?

Most likely, yes.

you know that you won't

It means you are the chosen one.

Then you were destined to do so.

You can't just do that!

It was fun pissing him off with the fail safe.

Sauce? And it's not ******* Battletoads or any variation or spinoff of Battletoads, assholes.

Fallout New Vegas I believe.

Fallout 3. Pretty weird quest, you punch a ten year old in the face early on.

I knew the graphics looked familiar. Thanks a lot! And thanks anon above.

Closing the book because you don't wanna follow a predetermined choice is like shooting yourself for the same reason.
#104 to #91 - makeitasyougo (08/27/2013) [-]
but that defeats the purpose of having an option to follow, which the book is meant to have.

The logo seem odd on the left side...

That's because Hooch's hand is moving.

I mean that it's on the left. T.V. logos are generally on the right.

This was honestly one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Thanks for reminding me off it.

Lost Skeleton of Cadavra!!
That is my favorite movie but not many people I know have heard of it.

what if that was your predetermined action? you'd be fulfilling it

I think its somehow improving. I've seen a bunch of posts lately where it was actually 90% correct or higher.
User avatar #8 - spikethepony (08/26/2013) [-]
The way I see it, if the universe is predetermined by causality, than for whatever reason, I will continue to believe otherwise, as it is what I am destined to believe.

Wrong
The reason is quantum physics, where very much of it is based on CHANCE.

Explaination incoming

In the 19th century, scientists used the idea of random motions of molecules in the development of statistical mechanics to explain phenomena in thermodynamics and the properties of gases.
According to several standard interpretations of quantum mechanics, microscopic phenomena are objectively random. That is, in an experiment that controls all causally relevant parameters, some aspects of the outcome still vary randomly. For example, if you place a single unstable atom in a controlled environment, you cannot predict how long it will take for the atom to decay—only the probability of decay in a given time. Thus, quantum mechanics does not specify the outcome of individual experiments but only the probabilities. Hidden variable theories are inconsistent with the view that nature contains irreducible randomness: such theories posit that in the processes that appear random, properties with a certain statistical distribution are somehow at work "behind the scenes" determining the outcome in each case.

What determines that chance that the 'unstable atom' will 'decay'
More specifically, what decides that 'X' will 'Y' instead of 'X' will 'Z'
User avatar #24 to #10 - spikethepony (08/26/2013) [-]
I understand the concept of quantum physics (if only at a basic level), hence the word, if. Basically, I'm speaking hypothetically.
#18 to #10 - anon (08/26/2013) [-]
So... its still not under people's control, correct?

If you realize that you're being lectured on modern neuroscience by a barefoot hobo with his moth-eaten penis dangling out through one of the many holes in his ripped apart pantaloons, turn to page 72

Looking at all the comments describing this as like 			******		 up. What if there's two different paragraphs/sections on that page?

Could be but it's heavily implied they're the same outcome

personally, I wouldn't give a flying **** . It means that apparently some ******** creator really likes ******* with his/her/it creations, but there's nothing i can do about it, so **** it, imma fap long and hard

And then I skip all the way to page 394.

EAT **** OLD MAN YOU DONT TELL ME WHAT TO DO.

You would not do well reading a choose your own adventure, my friend.

I'd let the adventure choose me.
