Can your future n fortune be predicted or planned n prepared?

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!

    There is a link of your current post with the previous one.

    There is a section of religious, astrology faithfuls after being told of their future will actually make that prediction happen by waning on their efforts to deal with each day on it’s own merit.

    We are born in soup of probabilities which coagulates and separates these floating probabilities into occurrences with probability 1 and non occurrences with probability zero. The soup is my version of Schrodinger cat.

    I abhor activities that become self fulfilling prophecies.
    Mischief of life lies in its ability to make life interesting as the future unfolds.

    Risk, mischief , laughter has an element of dare that makes life interesting.

    Again this subject is intuitive and lacks the rigors of mathematics.

    Nice blog.

      Your thoughts are rich and rigorous! I always feel grateful for same.

      Yes, there is linkage of this post to my last 2 articles.

      Nearly all of us tend to have highly misplaced notion about our future and fortune and assume that the soup of probabilities is already prepared, kept somewhere and has foregone taste. All evidences suggest that probabilities collapse to reality only right at the nick of moment, when observer is a witness. Till then, it is your version of soup of Schroedinger’s cat!

      Paradox of humans seems to be that they crave for things in black and white; but actual taste is for grey.

      My understanding is that science has not got its grip on very fundamental aspects of nature since all attempts to find these mathematically would only widen the gap between what nature truly is and what science comprehends.

    If I may paraphrase black and white is a mathematical equivalence of probability 1 and zero.

    Deeper understanding of events as you point out is grey and it is left to an individual to apply his mind to figure out what actions actualize based on this realization of grey. This automatically means living life and executing actions is a process of converting greys into black and whites.

    The reverse also occurs. The actions being black and white( do or dont do) the results are analyzed and a grey component added to the original soup.

    Interesting that the world cannot do without the analogue realization and the digital decisions and actions.

    Put together it becomes a quantum picture of duality .

      You have made a significant point!

      Pure mathematics is actually 1 and 0; but human search for realities or truth and greed for growth and business has made it very complex and its beauty is long lost.

      Truth or reality for a given scenario is one and only one; but human tendency to do it my way has only led to too many perceptions and paradoxes, and therefore, net result is quantum duality that no one correctly fathoms.

        If you have seen the movie Matrix in which the environment is portrayed as a rain of ones and zeroes is so relevant in our visualization of analog conversion to digital actions. Theoretically with infinite byte word one can nearly create an analog experience.

        Interestingly the causal world is digital and the philosophical , spiritual world is an analogue

        As humans we flit between the two.

          Very well orchestrated! Thanks.

          Your deep thoughts do evoke or inspire more. Don’t you think that our visualization or observation is digital in present time but becomes analogue, when we allow past (memories of what it was a moment or more earlier). It happens so fast, actually at the speed of light that we fail to realize. It is for this reason, one who knows to live in present is able to see things in black and white.

    Yep, that’s the word – Future is nothing but “Next Now”. It’s up to us how do we define and manage the “Current Now” so that it transpires into a great “Next Now”.

    Future or fortune can never be predicted but yes, can be planned and prepared for sure!
