Prediction can go wrong but not planning for future!

While Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are busy taking out dirty linens from each other’s drawers in public, pollsters and respective supporters are agog and busy predicting fate of their candidates in US presidential campaign.

During annual examination, a student is always eager that someone could correctly predict whether he/she would get through or fail. Many people, who have not been successful in their previous job interviews, visit astrologer or tarot card reader to know whether they would get through in next interview.

But, we seldom think, what would happen, if we know our future in advance. If a student knows that he/she would get thru in examination, he/she would stop to prepare. If a sportsman knows ahead of time that his team would be defeated, he would have no heart to play. There would have been no need to spend billions of dollars and bloodbath of words, if the two contestants in current US election knew their actual fate.

So, correct knowledge of our future can instantly kill our thoughts, talent, thrill … and lot more; yet most of us incessantly keep searching or worrying about our future.

Is your future and fortune predictable?

There are modern methods and tools to predict things in advance – surveys, statistical algorithms, mathematical models and now Big Data.

Then, there are age old practices of astrology, horoscopy, palmistry, numerology and many more, practitioners of which insist that these are based on science though some surmise it is divine driven. That is not true. Science is always in black and white; whereas these practices thrive on what is gray. As regards divine hands, it is a clear case of what we fear but can’t fathom, we tend to defer it to domain of faith or god.

All of above tools or techniques are fundamentally governed by law of probabilities. If prediction of fortune teller is closer to higher probability, it has higher chance of coming true and turns out to be false, in case of low probability.

For a variety of reasons, we are saddled with one or more of following perceptions:

  • Our future gets defined by our birth time or zodiac sign.
  • Our future is predefined and stored somewhere, which keeps rolling in – how? Not known.
  • Our fortune has been written on our forehead – by who? God or genes?
  • When we think or dream of future, we are actually dipping into same.
  • When past time vanishes, future is already waiting with its wings (where?) to become visible.

None of above is true. Even science has failed to define correctly what future time is.

When you think or dream of future, you actually do it on basis of past memories or images. Past time is what gets stored as your memory and present time is what you witness now. Frame of present time keeps changing based on what happens now and we perceive it as future. Truly speaking, future is nothing but “Next Now” in relation to “Current Now”!

You can plan and prepare your future; actually you have been doing that!

Surprised? But, it is true that you have been always making your future rightly or wrongly albeit being unaware. Look at last 2 posts on this website –

One on Schrödinger’s cat brings out the fact that anything that has not happened has 50% chances of happening.

Second post illustrates that things around you closely track your thoughts.

To build your future and bring fortune, all that you need is to follow following 4 mantras or mandates:

  1. Become capable of earning without clamoring for it.
  2. Be committed to growth without being greedy.
  3. Be competent to hold and handle without hoarding it.
  4. Be dynamic without doubting or dithering.

World generally follows only left highlighted part of above 4 mantras but that can push probability only little above 50%. If you want to make it 100%, additionally follow right parts of these mantras all the more rigorously.

Then, you are set to enjoy fabulous future and fortune!

Why history repeats by itself at professional and personal levels!

Reminiscent of history! Source: http://www.flickr.com/

A survey shows that about two third people around the world believe that history always repeats by itself; but one third not!

Fact is history does repeat time and again at micro and macro levels, albeit it does not replicate exactly. Its tendencies and trends, types and turn of events are similar in nature.

Famous US President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in a theater by a man, who fled to a warehouse. Another well-known US President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by a man from a warehouse, who then fled to a theater! Turn the pages of history of several battles fought; it repeatedly shows that one side in the battles was generally outmanned and outgunned, but it always managed to win the battle because it had better leadership! Every era of peace and prosperity has been followed by era of turmoil and troubles and vice versa. Countries, companies and individuals – leaders or preachers alike look invincible during their hay days; but become vulnerable and gullible soon thereafter. Inflation is followed by deflation in country economics and then inflation raises its head again. Cycles of historical highs and lows keep repeating unabated!

You feel hungry at 5 p.m. and treat yourself with junky food. Next morning, you read in newspaper how junk food junks your health and you decide not to eat it again. But again that afternoon, at 5 p.m., you end up eating junk food.

As per famous American author Mark Twain, no occurrence is sole and solitary, but a mere repetition of a thing which has happened before and perhaps more often!

Negative historical events seem to repeat more frequently than positive ones!

Have you notices that? Historical records point to same – wars, accidents, natural calamities, rebellions, deaths, setbacks and sicknesses!

My great grandfather died before my great grandmother. Someone had told my grandfather that history would repeat with him. It got stuck in his mind as worry for remainder of his life and he did die before my grandmother!

If a father became bankrupt in his business, one of his children in business would also become bankrupt in future!!

Reasons why history repeats!

Where do events, which occur, get stored? Are heavenly hands responsible to recall history? Astrology would dispose it is repeat positioning of planets that makes a given event to repeat!

Don’t be surprised to know – every day you repeat more than 90% of things that you did yesterday like getting up in the morning around the same time, brushing teeth and having breakfast in hurry, driving on the road with similar frame of mind – agitated or assuaged to your behavior at work. If this is the case, nearly 90% of things that happen to you would be a repeat of past.

Now, when large number of people do the similar things as above, then lot of events that are likely to happen at larger levels would also be same – simplest examples are cleanliness, traffic congestion, temperament or culture of public etc.!

Logically, repetition of history is not metaphysical or mysterious phenomena. History or past is not stored anywhere in nature or universe but in your own mind. It repeats, simply because consciously or unconsciously you repeat your thoughts and actions, regardless these are positive, negative or neutral, to the extent of 90%!

When you repeatedly think same, you are bound to attract similar events or environments that you have witnessed in past. Conversely, similar events would revive your memory or thoughts. That is why some scenes always tend to instill fear or some faces or faiths invoke prejudices in you!

Why we tend to repeat, more so what is negative or wrong!

  1. Inertia
    Like gravitational force, inertia is prevalent in every object, leave alone humans. So what we start, we tend to continue, unless we decidedly act against it.
  2. Comfort zones
    We have strong tendency to develop our comfort zones and then, feel cozy in same, since we start to like those and feel secured.
  3. Habits, traits and beliefs
    Above 2 points give birth to our habits, traits and beliefs. These 3 attributes have great influence on our repeat thinking and behavior.
  4. Falling prey to negatives
    We are more emotional than rational. Therefore, we are vulnerable to negativity and that makes us very conscious of same. Negativity at individual or mass level is the precise reason, why negative historical events occur more than positive ones, as mentioned above!
  5. Ego and biases
    All of above points promote ego and biases in us, which in turn prompt contradictions and conflicts.
  6. Ideas and images at the back of our mind
    This is a major revelation – you can’t estimate enormity of things at back of your mind! Call it back of your mind, memory storage or subconscious mind; what reside there regulate your moves. You decide to keep only positive memories and discard the rest; but you would realize soon that negative memories still reside and those become active, when you see anything negative. Your drive against what you don’t like keeps same very thing live and lingering.
    Mind knows only to store or ignore; would not differentiate good or bad, positive or negative, when it comes to storing! So, decision to keep only right things does not help; only ignoring does!! Is not amazing?
    What resides at back of your mind is single biggest factor behind your repeat behavior and stimulates history to repeat. 

This brings us to very striking conclusion – what you repeat is not a Change and hence Change is only one that can repel events, you don’t relish! And if you want to reverse the history, work on above 6 points relentlessly!!

Is your future or fortune predefined; can same be predicted accurately?

Peep into Future? Source: http://www.flickr.com/

Biggest worry of a man is his future – what would or can happen to me or those dear to me! This worry converts into curiosity. Deep desire in predicting future or fortune has led to development of several subjects or techniques like astrology, palmistry, numerology, zodiac signs, tarot reading and several more. Practitioners of such techniques claim accuracy of these. They believe future of every individual is already defined from the time of birth! Leave alone individuals; they include company, community, city or even country in their forecasts for future e.g. date and exact time of a country’s independence plays a key role in determining its progress or perils!

Would it not be a wonderful idea, if a scientist can know in advance outcome of his/her research; a student can know in beginning of a year the result of his/her examinations or a company can know how would its balance sheet look like 5 years from hence!

Fallacies around foretelling!

If anything can be predicted accurately, it does mean that it has been predefined. If that be the case, then a student foretold about his success should get it, even if he does not study. But, that would not work! If a businessman has been told that he would make lot of money in the running year, then he should earn it without even doing business. Again, that looks impossible.

It clearly implies that your future is not predefined. All of foretelling techniques demand that you make efforts as usual – sweat, toil or take risks. Whatever you would do, outcome would be either success or failure. These techniques seem to just pick one of the 2 probabilities.

Few years back, one of my relatives told me about a doctorate scientist, who also practiced astrology as his hobby and made very accurate predictions. I requested my relative if he could arrange my meeting with him. When I met him, I requested him to tell me what exactly is behind astrology and is it really scientifically sacrosanct?

He told me confidentially that when he meets his client, in first few sentences of conversation, he is able to, by his gut feel or instincts, figure out his/her strengths and weaknesses. From astrology, he has learnt how to relate some tendencies of events, which happens to a person, by positions of planets. He was not sure whether there is any scientific truth behind that. From these 2 aspects, he arrives at his best judgment (or guess) and conveys it to client as forecast of his future!

Technique of “future or fortune telling” seems more about the way of telling it!

Does it sound weird? But, it is true!

If you closely observe, you would find 2 characteristics invariably in what you are foretold – (a) one who tells does it very confidently and (b) language used is such that it can be interpreted more than one ways.

Eagerness or anxiety to know future is a mental weakness. So, above way of foretelling is most likely to go down in your head firmly and easily become your belief. If you are told that this year is not good for your health, you would start noticing how often you are falling sick, forgetting how often you are feeling well. Your conviction in what has been foretold makes you conscious and that becomes the onset of more issues. Even if you are not falling sick more often than prior years, you would tend to believe it so!

You fail to fathom what is “Now or Present”; so how can you figure out future?

Now, this is for real! This is scientific!! Be open to believe it.

No one can ever state what is “Now or Present”! “Now” can only be experienced; but cannot be told!! By the time you get ready, however fast, to tell what is now, it becomes past!!

Everything that you tell is actually a past. So, where comes future from? Science i.e. physics has not been able a get any grip of future so far. All mathematical calculations, astronomical observations or thoughts about future that we contemplate or comprehend are permutations and combinations of past images or information!

Here is a new revelation from my research – “There is nothing like Future that exists at this moment or now!” None of scientific experiments has been able to find future. Yes, it can talk of current trends or tendencies and compute what and where an object would position as the time passes by. Note that it is a computation by mind or math.; but not a future by itself. Feeling of future comes when we migrate from present event to next event; but it does not mean the said next event already pre-existed as future!

Classified Conclusions

  • There is no place in Universe, where “Future” is located or has been predefined.
    Therefore, to claim that future can be foretold is not correct.
  • 100% of what we talk or discuss is “Past”!
    Past is nothing but images or information stored in our brain.
  • Now or present tense can only be experienced.
  • Past brings pleasures and pains; highs and lows!
    But, it is present that makes you happy and hopeful!!
  • There is nothing like future.
    It is just a term, which we use to define our thoughts which did not exist in our past; but we use our past to create such thoughts!
    One can only assess or compute probabilities and trends for upcoming events, which we construe as future!!
  • What we think, do or experience now determines what would happen next, which we call as future!
    Nearly all of us have very coarse knowledge of what are we thinking and doing now!!

So, we need to live by and know “Now” to fathom the “Future”.
