There are two extreme categories. The people who believe that everything is rationality and reason (certainties everywhere), and do not accept the concept of fate, and the people who take the limitations and imperfections of reality and try to play with them.
Purely reasonable and rational people are those who do not understand or do not reach to distinguish the texture of reality. They still have not realized that nature has not created any straight line (or very few, I am even unable to put a single example). Other people believe in the limitations and imperfections of reality, our way of thinking and acting.
But the problem is deeper. The education system immerses us in an ideal world and simplified to help us (or so they say) to understand the dynamics of reality and of the composition of our environment. So far so good. The problem is, that after graduation, they forget to tell us the reality that we have been learning at the laboratory is a laboratory reality, simplified and ideal, and that reality does not work the same way. A terrible forgetfulness that can pay dearly.
A coin in the street. We suicidally simplify explanations of reality. We do not discern between the ideal and the real, which brings up serious consequences, and prevents us from appreciating the reality as it is.
If you ask what is the probability of getting one of the two sides when shooting a coin certainly you’ll tell me that one in two. Especially if you’ve been schooled. In fact the higher is your level of training; the more confident you will be, and the more effort will it cost you to get you off the donkey.
This is proof of how the education system with its beautiful and elegant statistical and mathematical formulas has caused you troubles. We will try to open your eyes.
Indeed, a coin thrown into a classroom a school (college, high school, college, business school or any other) will have one of two options (50 %) out of which one of the two sides of the coin will appear. In the sterile world of teaching with their controlled laboratory environments, it is this way.
Following these lines, we will add the texture of reality. Is the perfect coin? Is the perfect environment without any disturbances? Is the coin always shooting in the same way? Is the coin always shooting with the same force pulling with the same hand…?
Well, there you go, a 50 % chance in a classroom is not a 50 % chance on the street. If you do not believe because you have some sort of college degree or a master’s, try it. It’s simple, get any currency and start scoring the rolls you get. After a few runs (be patient) you will see how the thing works differently to how you were taught. Well, it seems that there was something hidden, and we haven’t realized about it before. Reality is complex and messy.
By the way, that small percentage of difference that exists between the head and tail is what we call fate. And that is precisely what we have to appreciate, and we shouldn’t despise.
Note: If you have some knowledge of statistics, can you tell me if you throw an infinite number of times, is 50%. And indeed it is. The problem is that you are not immortal, and therefore cannot throw an infinite number of times. This difference between the two runs to reach the 50% chance is what is called fate. And that is what you have been taught to despise when is all you really need to understand. That’s how it is with us.
