Fate is a word we use to cast the past (and future) as though it ever could have been anything other than sheer randomness and confusion; we assert an order upon memory or history such that we might reflexively self-define ourselves through it. Fate is another word for a hope of order, meaning or purpose and although clearly not without value, it is as often misplaced as are all other fictional reasons for the triumphs and catastrophes we encounter in life.

Brilliant post. What happens if we take a spiritual perspective for example. They say we have soul contracts our souls make before birth that decides our life path.. what if our fate has already been chosen? What if it is more than a human concept? Amber
