I have no problem admitting when I am wrong. I'm not that prideful to maintain an ignorant view when I know deep down my own view was flawed. And the more we talk about it, the more I see your position and how likely it is. It certainly does make sense, what with the time travel example.
But as someone who has always striven to better himself, I like to take credit for who I have become and what I have done and will do, claiming that it is and will be because I chose to become the best man I could be, not that I was fated to be who I became (My pride does allow me to do that much). So I am kind of stuck in between viewpoints here. While I acknowledge that my subconscious controls much if not all of what I do and think, I feel there is another part of me that influences my subconscious and allows me to evolve intellectually and philosophically.
