The past can be an indicator of the present (and future) but your expectations of what’s going to happen (in the future) are entirely within your control (though they have little, or no, outcome on what actually happens.) – The (absurd but brilliant) Philosophy of: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern [pt.3] – The coin toss

Get a coin. Flip it. What was it? Head or tails? Okay, now do it again. And again. Now, those previous flips have an effect don’t they. They affect what you expect will happen, based on probability, but have absolutely zero effect on what actually happens.


#1: Probability’s a factor which operates within natural forces.
Rule #2: Probability is not operating as a factor
Rule #3: We are now held within un-, sub-, or super-natural forces.

So, your best guess as to what life is, what death is, and all the stuff we do between those two points (and why) all just like flipping a coin. You could be right and equally, you could be wrong. But at the end of it all, there is one sure thing that’s going to happen, no matter what.

But your expectations during life are entirely up to you, and the way you feel about something you should or shouldn’t do is not universal, it’s entirely personal, and no one can possibly understand what it’s truly like to be you, and why you do what you do, think what you think and feel what you feel.
