It also speaks to the opposing ideas regarding free will or destiny, hm? I've always thought that if everything is destined, then we have no real thoughts of our own. Therefore, when we say things like, "It was God's plan," or similar things, then we are indirectly stating that we have no free will.

I'm not so sure reality is 'determined' though. If you consider an ocean of waves there's a lot of chaos. None of the waves are individually pre determined, how they move where they go or how big they are, it's a matter of cause and effect but they do behave in a similar predetermined way because they are waves of water after all. NO different than people, we may be apart of the same thing, being swept by these waves beyond our own will, but there is still the freedom of your own path, your own choices as you are taken somewhere. It doesn't imply pre determination though it does imply a certain form of reality.

Yes, culture and environment help create and sustain our individual realities, and the fact that "most" people just float along with the majority, believing what their culture has taught them, makes them seem like "sheeple". Here at GLP, many of us are free-thinkers in a way. However, just like the goth kids who all dress in black to be "different" show that they, too, are simply followers as well. Many here at GLP are marching to the beat of a different drum, but even this drum beat keeps a ritualistic rhythm, per se. Being different here would mean they'd have to be conservative and complacent. Quite a turn-around fro the "norm" in GLP speak.
Just saying....
