Have you ever stopped to think about the little things? The little decisions that ultimately turn out to be huge in your life? What if our lives are already written in advance? Planned out like a book. Would that be fate? The little ideas or thoughts that just pop into your head… Maybe I’ll take the long way home tonight. A different route. A different direction. Maybe it will lead you to misfortune or to your soulmate. What if the wind blew harder than normal. You wake up to a cold house and you decide you might need a jacket on this cold morning. A sports jacket of course. Your team catches the eye of a passerby. Conversation sparks and info is exchanged. The webs of friendships intertwine until the world seems small, and a friendship is born. That friendship blooms into a job opportunity, your new career where you meet the love of your life. 5 years later your child is born. Your child, the child that created the life changing invention that helped the United States win WWlll… Don’t blame it on the wind. I’ve tried to analyze it. You can trace your paths back as far as you can remember…. You can analyze everyone new to your life, as they come but don’t worry, what’s done will be done. And what will be done will be done. My life was changed. It came down to probability, literally a coin flip. 50% chance. I got lucky right?
There are 3 types of people.
1. Believes everything happens for a reason. Good and bad things.
2. Believes in coincide nce.
3. Is too dumb to realize when good things are happening. Therefor bad things always happen. Or vice versa.
Have you ever heard of the birthday problem?
In probability theory, the birthday problem or birthday paradox concerns the probability that, in a set of randomly chosen people, some pair of them will have the same birthday. By the pigeonhole principle, the probability reaches 100% when the number of people reaches 367 (since there are 366 possible birthdays, including February 29). However, 99% probability is reached with just 57 people, and 50% probability with 23 people. These conclusions include the assumption that each day of the year (except February 29) is equally probable for a birthday.
Well that is all well and fun scientist and mathematicians!
Riddle me this.
A mother carries a child for generally speaking around 9 months from conception. It is no surprise to me that there is a 50% chance that in a randomly selected group of 23, 2 will share the same B-day!
This is not just a numbers game or probability. It’s science.
The next big snow or ice storm we have that snows us all in for 3 or 4 days go down to your local hospitals nurseries 9months from then. Guarantee ya that little joint will be jumping.
Is it surprising that September 16th is the most common birthday? Merry Christmas.
Whatever your beliefs… Weather your higher power is God… or coincidence.
Remember this one thing. FATE LOVES THE FEARLESS.
