I don't know much about philosophical terms or movements, so I am curious as to whether there is a movement or term for non-conditional decision making.
That isn't a formal term that I used above and I just made it up because I think it best describes what I'm going to try and describe.
Basically what I'm trying to denote by that term is the thought that time itself (In its traditional sense) doesn't exist and that, really, it is just a timeline to put change against in order to relate events. I would carry that idea on to say that, really, one may as well consider all time to exist and have existed now. The reason that I say this is because I would say that time does exist, however, I'm saying that it just doesn't pass. That is to say that really we live in the same time as people thousands of years ago, but we and our environments have just changed and so that is all that time is contingent upon. By that reasoning, everything in the future may as well happen now so long as its not contingent on change, so for example, I know that I will be using toothpaste the rest of my life to brush my teeth, but I only buy one or a few bottles of toothpaste at a time because there are some changes that will happen in the future which I know will occur. Some of those being that, after 50+ years, I would imagine that the toothpaste wouldn't work as well or will be expired, that it would be hard to lug all of that toothpaste around to wherever I live for the rest of my life, and, maybe after a while I would want a change in toothpaste flavor. For those easily predictable reasons, I don't but copious amounts of toothpaste and instead buy just one or two tubes at a time. On the other hand, many people buy a near complete lifetime supply of stamps because it economically makes sense, forever stamps at least don't expire, and they take up very little space. It is for these reasons that people but so many at once.
What I'm really asking is whether this same principle can be applied to larger or more abstract decisions or things. Also, is there a term for the time concept and the "non-conditional decision making" "term" or anything that at least closely follows it?
