Five Formulae For Life

Digg my article



Life explained and lived through -
  • Selfishness is a virtue - work hard for yourself; keep expanding the economy around you; pay higher taxes; hire people; spend more. It will do good. 
  • Moral hazard - you pay a price for others' indulgence. Almost always.
  • Information asymmetry - you can never know the truth. Only knowable truth is what you did. 
  • Chance theory - one thing somewhere there can and will affect the something else here. a boss has a fight at home; team gets screwed.
  • Black-swan events - extraordinary, not ordinary, events shape life. Ours or someone else's. 9/11. marriage. death.

I LIKE YOUR theory of chance, but i sir believe that you are wrong. i am a north american indian so my thoughts are based on what i have learned from this condition. i do not know your religion or your roots but for me, there is no such thing as chance or destiny or an all powerful god. in my culture, god is the equivalent of my relative. we are all destined to become god and could if we could somehow walk down the right road and see the patterns that exist in everything. time is not frozen, so beyond what we see, we have to imagine as well the arrow of time. why is this this way and not that way. perhaps time for that thing is somewhere else and to understand it we have to see what it had been and what it has become.

one day, when we can see, then we no longer have to come back. we will be perfect and in total harmony in our spirit which exists out of time not before and not after. all time is always here. thus, when one understands this, say in a the ball of time that is an atom, then we can see and ultimately can predict what will happen if one sees clearly enough.

sorry for the long explanation about our way of thinking, but to say chance is to say that you have not seen.
