Training to become the “Creator”

An opinion from the Internet:

“You wrote that we exist in a deterministic system, where our final state, our goal is predetermined. But if the future is predetermined, how can we evolve? If life is training and yet it is already written, how can we learn, since we are only programs, there is no choice to accomplish the training?”

It would be true, if we clearly knew, saw the program, and in advance knew all the cause and effect processes in advance.

But we do not, it is purposefully hidden from us, so we could evolve, make efforts, go through trials and errors by our own efforts as if we were free to act. Just because we are told that we are in a sold game, or that we are simple actors in a movie that is already shot, we cannot verify this.

And in fact, the starting point and the final scene are sealed, but in between, how we get to that final scene, that depends on us, within some given parameters.

And while this might not seem much at first, by constantly trying to aim ourselves to a goal that is not completely known, within parameters, conditions we do not see in advance, we gradually map and get to know the whole system, with each and every detail, we learn all the cause and effect processes and fully understand the purpose of the system.

So, while in the final scene we come to understand that our evolutionary path was predetermined all along and that we were going to get to the same — happy ending regardless of what we did or do, we come to such an intricate understanding, internal feeling of the system, that gives us a true, realistic, tangible feeling as if we ourselves created and operated the whole system — meaning the whole, known and presently unknown Natural reality.

Is there greater freedom or reward than that? We are training, preparing for that feeling of sensing ourselves “like the Creator”, like the original operating, creating force, the authority of the whole system. And when we feel that does it really matter if we actually created the game we ourselves went through or not?
