I have been inspired by various films. Including Matrix and Inception. The focus was on the theory of knowledge. Does it make sense to flee from destiny? Probably not. Would it be possible? Would it be better? If machines do, yes. But if it does God or someone else? Probably not.
In my story, the protagonist tries to escape form the determination. He renounces his needs. Whether in the world of computers or in the real world. He becomes lonely. And dies unhappy. Perhaps the determination is unavoidable. Perhaps we need it, and perhaps the decision is an illusion.
