A coworker/friend was talking about experiencing dÃ©jÃ vu, and the idea that it’s an indication of us experiencing the path that we’ve already chosen for ourselves. Then she was wondering why she would have chosen the path she did – wouldn’t you pick something better?
friend: Do you think you choose the path, or just points A and B and the path can be anything that gets you there?
me: You mean, maybe I chose to die a millionaire and didn’t care about the path, thinking I’d be rich my whole life? But in reality I’m just going to always be like this and then hit the lottery the day before I die?
The lesson here is don’t try philosophizing with me…
