So Uboachan, are you a Stoic or an Epicurean?

 No.1001

You expect all the underage here to be familiar with ancient Greek philosophy?

To answer your question, I would choose stoicism, but I am unsure about its teachings on determinism and free will, as physicist would have me believe that everything is random and non deterministic.
But I still agree with its moral teachings.

physics isn't random. we just are not able to mesaure and niterpert all of the minute forces pushing and pulling things as tiny as quarks etc.

How can we be certain that it isn't random if we don't know whats going on down there?

I suck at physics so please explain.

>>1003
we can't be sure of anything

if you want a for-sure definition, please kill yourself

newton's laws etc are still theories.

but if you believe in magnets then trust me when I say that there are a lot of miniscule forces that'happen' (we don't know why) to make everything work.

I myself am also deterministic. I am confused as to where people who understand physics get the notion that we, as people, have free will. If randomness exists, it only exists at microscopic levels. But I digress.

I've not heard of either of these. However, I spent about 30 minutes looking at the two, and that makes me an expert on the internet.

Stoicism is the only one that makes sense to me. Where the hell does free will come from? We're just conglomerations of physical and chemical processes. It's hard to fully grasp, and even I haven't yet. I also like the Stoic idea of Casual Determinism. I mean, sure, if you 100% knew that a future event would take place, then you could do whatever, but your whatever either caused or had no effect on the outcome. If you're "fated" (Although specific planned fates don't exist either) to be rich, and you knew this and became lazy, then somehow the process of knowing your fate and being lazy was entirely involved in your richness. Or it's an external thing. Or whatever.

Fucking magnets, how do they work?
