Empirical Evidence of Predetermined Events
Can you read these words without choosing to do so?
Tempt Destiny findings have recently been applied to the field of elementary particle physics:

... of course not. If you think about it, without the fundamental acts of selection nothing happens. You cannot drink water, feed yourself, or even get out bed in the morning without making a choice. Your ability to select determines your ability to exist. So what does football fans choosing to have their team featured on a billboard have to do with the theory of destiny or the science of fundamental physics?
Destiny is a theory that events or series of events are predetermined, and since events are moments of physical energy, then fundamentally this theory applies more so to physics than it does to metaphysics or theology. It is commonly assumed that if everything is predetermined (cause) then that must mean that everything is certain (effect). In order to test this physical theory of cause and effect, I decided in 2000 to conduct an annual selection-based art experiment to determine if choice predetermines the events that follow. This knowledge has led to discovering a multi-billion dollar error:
This is what I have learned. Let's say that you drop a coin "directly" into a cup; the outcome is certain, for there is only one potential selected - coin-in-cup, fig. 1a. Conversely, you drop a coin "indirectly" into the cup by dropping the coin onto the rim of the cup; the outcome is uncertain, for there are more than one potential selected - coin-in-cup/coin-not-in-cup, fig. 1b. By obtaining certain effects from a direct selection and by obtaining uncertain effects from an indirect selection, you now have addressed all causal possibilities.
You now observe two cups, each with a coin in them; can you tell which coin-in-cup effect was generated by an indirect or direct selection? Without knowing which selection caused the coin-in-cup effect you can only make an assumption of how the effect was made. As demonstrated, if you know what "type" of selection occurred, you will know in advance if the effect of that selection is certain or uncertain for the two acts of selection predetermines both effectual states of existence (see Causal Methodology below).
As the Tempt destiny experiment has revealed and as the coin-in-cup experiment clearly illustrates, subject matter of a selection is irrelevant for the causal laws of selection apply to anything that can be selected whether we are talking about the choice of dropping a coin into a cup, football fans choosing to have their team featured on a billboard, or choosing to randomly collide protons directly and indirectly into each other in order to obtain evidence of the Higgs boson (aka GOD particle).
The empirical evidence confirms that the theory of destiny is valid in that all events are predetermined via the causal acts of selection of potentials without which the two effectual states of existence, i.e., certainty and uncertainty, cannot exist. Thus, the assumption that all events are certain, or all events are uncertain, is invalid for the two acts of selection are a dichotomy as are their effects. When we apply this new fundamental understanding of the cause and effect mechanisms of nature to what we call reality, the paradox between free will, quantum mechanics, and determinism no longer exist. However, this newfound knowledge of true cause and effect will require a fundamental reevaluation of all knowledge based on effects causing effects, i.e., science, philosophy, and theology, for we now have physical evidence that effectual states, that which can be observed or measured, are not causal.

From 2000 to April, 2012, fans of all 32 NFL teams were invited to vote for their favorite team to be featured on the next Tempt Destiny billboard. The Tempt Destiny billboard competition was an experiment to determine if choice predetermines the certainty or probability of the event that follows, i.e., destiny. The premise is twofold. When a direct selection is made, the completion of the artwork is certain (artwork on the left side). When an indirect selection is made, the completion of the artwork is uncertain (artwork on the right side).
*Direct Choice - the team with the most votes also winning its conference championship game (1024-1 odds).
**Indirect Choice - Beginning with the 2009 season, if the direct selection does not take place, then the SB bound team with the most votes is chosen (2-1 odds).
RESULTS: Over the span of twelve years, only once did a direct selection occur (SB XLII). Contrast this result with the three-out-of-three indirect selections that occurred in the final three years. The evidence show that it is most likely for an indirect selection to occur, for it is highly unlikely for both SB bound teams to have the same vote totals, than it is for a direct selection to occur, see - official results (click here). The key to understanding these results depends upon which methodology you wish to employ.
Effectual Methodology: It is understood that we perceive reality via physical effects such as in the field of physics which is the observation or measurement of physical properties of matter and energy and the relation between them. This effectual methodology inherently places causality as an event that takes place between physical properties, i.e., effects causing other effects. If we interpret the results without factoring the initial selection process involved, we get an incomplete conclusion as exhibited below:
1. *Artist begins initial phase (C) of creating the billboard art (E).
2. Contact participants (C) to reproduce the artwork for the billboard (E).
3. Contact football team with intention to support their SB bid (C) and establish the groundwork for their approval (E).
4. Complete artwork and billboard design (C) and obtain football team’s final approval (E).
5. Participants create the billboard (C) and display the billboard prior to SB event (E).
6. SB outcome (C) determines if:
a. Artwork is completed (E) with a silver football painted to signifying the trophy won.
b. Artwork remains unfinished (E).
Causal Methodology: If we factor in the selection process into the analysis of the results and then map the events via coordinates as exhibited on the science page, we find that choice consists of two dichotomies. This gives us two distinctive outcomes; one that is certain and one that is not as clearly demonstrated by the coin-in-cup experiment. Einstein believed there must be “hidden variables” that instructed nature at the fundamental level how to behave even before it was measured. We find that the two acts of selection, although non-local, are the hidden variables that Albert Einstein alluded to.
As theoretical physicists John S. Bell once predicted, " The only alternative to quantum probabilities, superpositions of states, collapse of the wave function, and spooky action at a distance, is that everything is superdetermined. For me it is a dilemma. I think it is a deep dilemma, and the resolution of it will not be trivial; it will require a substantial change in the way we look at things."
Perhaps its time we look at things via cause and effect instead of effects causing effects in order to better understand reality. When we apply this knowledge, the things that we thought we knew are now questionable (more on that later). Obviously I can only briefly touch upon the implications of this discovery here for this topic would require a book(s) to try to attempt to encompass the ramifications of this knowledge. In the meantime, thank you for allowing me to share with you this discovery.
