Jorge Borges Garden of Forking Paths - If we are the creaters of our universe then we are the gods of this world (we can know the world) - It starts with a misquote from Liddell Hart’s book and it actually says the opposite of the original quote - Liddell Hart o Advocate of indirect approach: don’t launch direct attack, but upset your enemies equilibrium before the main attack o The issues of battles are determined in the minds of leaders not in the bodies of the soldiers - Nature of Time o What we think about the character of time is important bc all our actions are ordered in time o Bordes’s view is that only the present is real This view is a hopeless happiness - Future is fixed o Shift: you should imagine as if you have already accomplished your goals Think of the future as something you cant change in the same way you view the past o If god/something had foreknowledge what you will do tomorrow, the future must be fixed Thus, you don’t have any freedom
