For the universe to repeat exactly, don’t the person’s thoughts & emotions have to repeat exactly ?
Reading and re-reading numerous past posts and comments on here by Swami Vishwananda & IAmMilind, I get that the universe repeats exactly in the time cycles. That’s the only way infinitely repeating universe can exist, is if it’s the exact same. Different jivas filling slots and positions in Vivekanand’s ferris wheel universe.
But then our emotions and thoughts have to be the exact same too right ?
So there is no free will in how we act and what we do but also there is no free will with our thoughts and feelings ?
Could someone clarify this for me ?
I’m at the point of losing sleep over trying to understand this, shouting in the shower and everything 😂 Losing my mind guys hahaha:D
Edit : Embarrassing to admit, but I have also spent tons of time googling to try and understand this. There is so much contradictory information out there on time cycles and free will in Hinduism. I’m even more confused after so many hours of trying to look this up 😂 Someone plz help 😬
Edit : Ok modifying/bounty stuffs too, any input or thoughts or even just comments with your views are greatly appreciated, thx 🥶 By the way for writing an answer, I don’t require strict answer from Hindu texts. Answers from text commentaries or acharyas types (blogs, lectures, Yootoobz vids or such are fine too, I mean, at this point I’ll accept a TikTok if it has the pertinent info hehe:D I just really wanna understand this, so yeah, thx :)
