    Medical science tells us that we began as an embryo. Where paramecium of compatible mating types exchange haploid nuclei, equivalent to gametes. Quantum mechanics would tell us that prior to the mating process chromosomal genomes exist in a ghostly state of probabilities until wavefunction collapse which happens during the mating process.

    All of our character traits, just like the environmental conditions we were born into, were predetermined by a long line of ancestral origins which in turn was predetermined by the universal wavefunction. Because free will does not exist once the wavefunction collapses, the embryo's life span progresses according to its environmental and genetic conditions. If the embryo was destined to be president for example it will be president no matter what.
