Can choice be the result of fate as well?
I think choices are presented by the fates you receive from other choices. Your parents make a choice to conceive you, they can either make a choice to abort you, or live.
So, for the first part things are out of your control.
But after that life is just a string of controllable events. Some are harder to control than others though. If a metal beam falls on you cause a building collapses you decided to go in the building, maybe you didn't know it was going to fall, but its still your choice

If M Theory is true, then free will is non-existent, unless one can know every possibility, and if that is so, then there is no choice, only fate, which has no choice, because all possibility is existent and real. Everything in life is written in stone, is providence on all levels, is destiny which is, of course, fate.
I dont think everything is written in stone. how can it be,actions have reactions... life isn't set.

If free will exists under the assumption that "something" (as defined within it's own quantum space) knows all the possibilities; does that mean it has the power to choose? And, if every reality is possible, can it choose to identify it's own own choice-making as "fate" ? Is there a possibility of our quantum space being ... simple? As stated, anything and everything is possible in any quantum space, regardless of time (nonlocality and superposition I think?) then what's to say there isn't a more complex function that our quantum space responds to?
"Fate" and "choice" do not exist, as they imply a connection to our concept of "time"... a past, present, and future. But, those do not exist. There merely "is".
There also "is" destiny. "Is" "is" the same as itself?
