Big Ball of Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff

In Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 "The Rings of Akhatan" the opening scene deals with a man who gets a leaf blown into his face obstructing his vision. Because of this he meets a woman who pushes him out of the way. This woman becomes the love of his life and mother of his child. Both of the books that we have read deal with some aspect of fate. Whether it was fate for Tomas and Tereza to end up together or the fate of Macondo. If the leaf did not blow into the man's face then the history of Clara would not exist. She would have not been spread across the time space continuum to save the doctor. Like we talked about earlier in the school year, can chance really be considered fate? If it is chance then it's a coincidence or something that could have happened to anyone, but you were the one that it happened to. If it is fate it was written in the stars for you to be there at that time. If you really think about it they are one in the same except one sounds more absolute.

I think the difference between chance and fate is that if you believe in fate, then nothing is left up to chance, and if you believe in chance, then there is no fate.
