The Question of Free Will

I retain the title “Peter & Paul” (my new historical novel) for this blog because, on closer examination, Peter and Paul represent two different approaches regarding our reality. The book, of course, discusses this in much greater detail. Here, however, I might mention that the principal difference between P&P is how they regard the world we live in, and the ensuing consequences. And make no mistake about it, there are consequences.
We must begin by deciding if the world (the physical reality) is something into which we were “dropped” by the gods (Elohim is Hebrew by Gods (also “objects of worship” — note: plural in both cases), or if we are the creators of the world we live in (Ye are gods).
Depending on which (biblical or any other) model we espouse to navigate the vicissitudes of our lives, the choice we make will affect our reality for… eternity? Even if, ultimately, there is but one reality. Enigma?
