Being an arrogant bastard, I must say that mathematics can solve a lot:

(to Bebelina)

I almost agree with your thesis, maybe you could say:

free thought = free will, then "heart + free thought = destiny".
But what if "free thought = free will + intelligence ", or
" destiny = heart + free will + intelligence", assuming we have any of those.

Then, intelligence = talent/limitation, so destiny=

"heart + free will/thought + talent/limitation". But what is "heart"?

Heart (the most complex, philosophically, biologically and psychologically), surely = courage + mental strength + composure all over fear?

Therefore, destiny = courage + mental strength + composure all over fear + free will(or thought) + talent/limitation.

There we have it, we can calculate someone's destiny (!) using my intrinsic model...although I am kind of hoping not (by assigning values to all).

Thank you.

P.S. Somebody's probably going to post a reply saying: "Ankit, you're right...you ARE an arrogant bastard."

Well I wasn't Ankit

Actually I was just going to add some philosophical sums also:

Christianty / other religions = Athiest

(freewill + Pre-determined) / quantum computers = Lifes direction

My favourite from Aristotle:

Lover1 + Lover2 = Half souls X 2 = True love

(The quote was something "For true love to exists, it takes two half souls, to make a full soul." Aristotle was a great believer that people had only a half soul, so the only time that you truly felt like you had a whole soul was when you fall in love with someone, and you feel as if you have found your soul mate)

Combustion Engines X Populous = Pollution + Destruction + (Populous - Lungs)

half Full + half empty =Somebody well balanced.

((plates x Mugs) X cutlery) + (yesterdays washing up X 4 weeks) = students sink

Neutral + Live - Earth + water = Frazzled

I don't think you've nailed all the variables. Namely that one person's destiny rides on the actions of many others.
