THE TRUTH ABOUT RANDOMNESS+

randomness_happens

Randomness: adv. a subset(s) existing (by chance and/or with minimum predictability)

Random behavior or actions are highly unpredictable and the time and place of that random action is frequently not known. Random behavior is frequently called chance behavior.

A card game may only seem like random behavior or very unpredictable but it’s not. The average sucker can’t predict what the next hand in a card game will be but you can if you cheat with a dishonest dealer or by having a sophisticated electronic device which keeps track of the cards in the deck and relays that information to you electronically to your ear. Yes, card shuffling is predictable and not really random behavior in the true sense of the word. You only can’t predict the cards position if you don’t have sufficient information or an adequate sensing device.

I predict that technology will soon make card playing obsolete and everyone will be able to predict the next card in a card game with an electronic device. That will take all the fun out of card playing and there will be fewer gambling suckers on the face of this precious endangered planet.

Air molecules colliding, certain accidents, and lottery wins are truer examples of random behavior or actions.

At the two unrealistic extremes there is the philosophy that life is mostly a question of luck and at the other extreme that life is determined by your personal actions and choices or that some guiding hand of God determines what will happen in your life. The truth is somewhere in between and life is really a combination of randomness and determinism and the humans who believe more in determinism are usually the most successful or prosperous ones.

The history of humans can be viewed as an attempt by humanity to exclude as much randomness from their lives as possible and replacing it with predictable events and as much certainty as possible. Trying to create order out of disorder is human destiny.

I also struggle against randomness and have devoted part of my life to excluding as much randomness out of language as possible with my logical definitions. It is my ultimate hope that excluding randomness from language will make for more deterministic logical behavior in humans in the long duration.

THE TRUTH ABOUT LUCK

believe-in-luck-poster

Do you think that you are unlucky? If you feel that way then chances are you have few good human contacts in life if any, have a bad education, have dysfunctional parents, family, and relatives, have bad communication skills, have bad friends, have a bad personality, lie frequently or are adulterous, are not attractive, are addicted to drugs or profligate spending, are uncoordinated and accident prone, don’t work hard or smart, gamble when the odds are against you, are disorganized, live life without planning ahead or having goals. What you know, what you do, and who you know is bad.

In real life those who are lucky and start from scratch are those who prepare for opportunity when it comes along and make sure that they are ready to grab opportunity by preparing for it with greater knowledge and greater skills and associating with optimistic humans who themselves are trying to lead successful lives. 

Luck depends on WHAT you know, WHAT you do, and WHO you know and if you know the right things, do the right things, and have the right contacts then you will have more luck than those who know very little, have few skills, and have almost no friends or bad ones.

If you are not very sociable then at least find a few friends who are more sociable and have many good friends or keep in touch with family members who are more sociable than you.

If you are interested in writing then try to find writing friends, if you are interested in real estate then try to find real estate friends, if you are interested in law then try to find lawyer friends, etc. etc. Choose your friends wisely to optimize your luck in a given field of expertise. If you can’t find professional friends then try to become friends with the offspring of professionals who you are interested in. Sometimes a friend of a friend is the way to optimize your social contacts.

Some humans are born lucky with much wealth, attractiveness, and many social contacts but piss all their luck away by not developing enough useful skills and knowledge and associating with bad friends who lead them into a profligate dysfunctional and frequently bankrupt lifestyle.

If you have given up on trying to improve yourself with useful new skills, new knowledge, new better friends, healthier eating, and exercising moderately then at least be thankful that you are lucky to be alive and lucky to have a welfare system which is there if you need it!!!!!!

Luck: n. a cause(s) impacting a subset(s) due primarily to chance which can cause a good and/or bad subset(s) on samer subset(s)

Opportunity: n. a circumstance(s) which makes the achievement of a goal(s) more probable and frequently the circumstance(s) itself has been a goal(s) so that a further goal(s) is more probable

MOTIVATIONAL WORDS BEGINNING WITH THE LETTERS K AND L

slide_242044_1870040_free

KINDNESS

Kindness is medium intensity caring and the behaviors which exist with it.  Kindness is a medium intensity nurturing and protective behavior towards another who has suffered misfortune and/or has done a bad and/or wrong thing. Being very kind is the same as loving.

KNOWLEDGE

Knowledge is a mentally stored retrievable collection of personal (skills and/or facts) and/or (theories and/or fictions gotten by experience) and/or education. Knowledge is used to make a personal goal(s) and to make a goal(s) by present and future generations if it has been stored as information on a device from which it can later be retrieved if it is permitted by law.  Some information suchas the manufacture of nuclear weapons or the making of contagious deadly lifeforms should be censored information.

LIBERTY

Liberty is political and social and economic freedom to pursue a goal(s) but limited by just laws which are presently at a very low standard of justice.

LIFE

While there is life in you then goals can be made and achieved.  When you are gone goals will be planned and achieved by the living humans, plants, and animals.

LOVE

A very intense pleasure from a thing one cares about and the behaviors which exist with it. There is a large probability that we will pursue a goal(s) which we love.

LOYALTY

Loyalty is when you are intensely attracted to a goal(s) which is frequently (a human(s) and/or an organization(s)) and/or a belief(s).  Loyalty may mean that you also love that human(s), organization(s), and belief(s) but it may also mean that you are merely behaving in loving ways but not feeling love because of a fear of being rejected.  Loyalty can sometimes last longer than it should especially when the immorality of the subjects of the loyalty becomes public knowledge and socially unacceptable.

LUCK

Depending mostly on chance or luck to achieve most of your goals means that you are ignoring the more important power of planned effort to achieve a goal(s).  Luck is a largely improbable method to achieve a worthwhile goal(s).
