Determinism, New Age and Free Will

Determinism - the idea that we are all absolute sock puppets of either a god, or natural forces. If religious, it's known as pre-destination. If not religious, it is still the notion of pre-destination.

New Age - the idea that everyone is eachother's sock puppet, or that the world or universe is a sock puppet for our imaginations to control. "If we all hold hands and attune our minds, we can change the nature of reality itself".

Free Will - the idea that there are no sock puppets, other then when we put a sock on our hands and start talking to ourselves, which would constitute a chosen, not pre-determined, action.

I choose free will.
