Answer: A person still has freedom of choice, freedom of will. In any case, we will still come to our final point because this point was initially ordered for us, but not the path to it. By determining one’s path, a person simultaneously defines the paths of the other souls that depend on him since we exist in an integral system.
Therefore, to the extent that he behaves incorrectly, he negatively influences the fate of other people. Naturally, this returns back to him with many times heavier, negative additions.
Although on one hand everything is predetermined, on the other hand, everything depends on a person—every particular moment in time. If he were aware of this, he would not know what to do. Therefore, this is hidden from him.
Remark: Some movies show how a person suddenly begins to understand that his every action affects others and he immediately “freezes.”
My Comment: But even freezing would not help because to the extent that he freezes, he does not act and naturally this also influences everyone.
