What The Fates surely don't like

"A man is only ever as strong as the people around him. The community he serves and the family he is sworn to protect. Whatever strength he has, he draws from them. And for them, he must be prepared to give up everything. His life, his blood, or else everything he has done has been for nothing. He is nothing", claimed John Smith in the tv-series The Man in the High Castle which was an portrayal of a post-war, dystopian world where the Allies lost World War II. No, one doesn't learn from history directly, but indirectly it should inspire us to do better or atleast be different alright. In Greek mythology, however, The Fates are divine beings who personified the birth, life, and death of humankind. Their names were Clotho (Spinner), Lachesis (Allotter), and Atropos (Inflexible). Clotho spun the “thread” of human fate, Lachesis dispensed it, and Atropos cut the thread (thus determining the individual's moment of death). Mind you, the actual time of an individual's death wasn't predetermined, but solely the moment. According to the ancient Greeks, the actions of human beings were thus predestined, so we aren't predestined in our destination but merely in how we'd act in various different circumstances. There's a subtle but important difference there. Human beings still have free will, but The Fates know the ultimate choices and actions for each person. Don't f*ck with them
