Just some random thoughts on the subject of Fatalism, **Determinism**, and **Model Satisfaction**.

- Let
`TH`

be some**Theory**(**Set**of**Sentences**or**Propositions**). - Let a
**Bounding Constraint**be some stipulated Property, Feature, or Characteristic of a**Model**.- For example: the satisfaction conditions for
**Group Theory**. - But we might think of these as Spatio-Temporal Constraints (e.g. - requiring some State to obtain within some inclusive Time interval and/or Spatial region).

- For example: the satisfaction conditions for
- Let
`Mₐ`

be the**Model Class**that**Satisfies**`TH`

under some**Bounding Constraint**`a`

(e.g. - Time, Locality, etc.). - We then say of
`Mₐ ⊧ TH`

that`Mₐ`

*Fatemakes*or is a*Fatemaker*for`TH`

. - It might be more helpful to think of
`S`

as some structure,`B`

as some**Bounding Constraints**,**Indeterministic Satisfaction**`⊧ⁱ`

,`⊧ᵈ`

as**Deterministic Satisfaction**:- Given that
`S ⊧ⁱ TH`

, a**Fatemaker**for`TH`

is defined as:`S ⋃ B ⊧ᵈ TH`

. - The addition of some sufficient
`B`

to`S`

transforms the system into a**Fatemaker**.

- Given that

With this basic framing verbiage in place, we might ask, "Under what conditions does

Fatemakingoccur?" How are indeterministic or non-deterministic systems transformed into deterministic ones? Locally, Globally?

And, perhaps the more interesting question, "What do we add to (or imbue) some arbitrary Structure

`Mₐ`

with so that it becomes aFatemakerfor`TH`

(so, that`Mₐ ⊧ TH`

)?

- Is it helpful to recast questions surrounding
**Determinism**as questions about the existence of*Fatemakers*?- Is this a more precise notion?
- Does allow scoped or localized discussions separate from general discussions about (universal)
**Determinism**(suppose some subsystems are locally deterministic but the Universe, say, is not).

- How do
*Fatemakers*intersect with the idea of*Hidden Variables*in**Deterministic**formulations of**Quantum Mechanics**?- I firmly accept the outcome of Bell's Inequalities (unlike Einstien)
- Still, it might be of interest to think of
*Hidden Variables*using*Fatemaker*verbiage - is the addition of a*Hidden Variable*sufficient to transform some system into a*Fatemaking***Model**?

*Supercoming*- the inevitable "bringing about" of some**Proposition**. Under what conditions can we guarantee that some**Proposition**obtains?- Akin to
*Supertruth*- a great summary exists here. **Fortune Telling**(or**Future Forecasting**in modern parlance) is all great and wonderful but what guarantees that something obtains with certitude?

- Akin to
- Military directives, election forecasting, presience science, futurology and macroeconomics, engineering resiliency, and so on.
