Do you believe in fate or free will?

Do you think that our actions are determined by the past (cause and effect) or do you think that our actions are driven by our own desires, which are dependent on an immediate experience, a split second, a choice led by intuition? Answering this question is as impossible as trying to slam a revolving door. This question has left me feeling like I have been inside of my own mind for so long that it has transformed into one of those Gravitron rides they have at carnivals. I start spinning around in cyclic motions of thought until I'm stuck to the walls. The beauty of this cyclic motion is that, like most apposing theories, one needs to exist with the other in unison, like yin and yang, you can't have light without dark and so on and so on and so on and round and round and round and round...until the ride stops and you stumble back onto solid ground with the same predicament that you started with - that the world is one big unanswerable, dualistic joy ride.
