Why do we believe in Fate?

The words Faith and Fate feel quite similar, semantically. I doubt that's a coincidence. In Dutch, the word Fate is ”het Lot” (eg, lottery ticket). It's fair to state that Fate refers to a slim chance on a considerable outcome, both negative (eg, accident) and positive (eg, lucky number). Hence, the Dutch word "het Lot". Faith refers to believing (eg, in a deity,...

Ohlala, the sighs of French relief

The media claim that the French president comfortably won his re-election by about 16 points (58 vs 42). In and of itself, this is true.

My blog's title is a thought that entered my mind while...

Once demand and supply reach an equilibrium, a market price emerges. Does this phenomenon extend to the Space and Time dimensions? From an individual's (ie, micro) perspective, a supply of time (eg, a...

The fallacy of control (3)

A friend sent me a comment on my recent blog The fallacy of control (2). She said that it lacked a connection with acceptance (my blogs). I agree. Hence, I've made some minor amendments to my 2017 diagram on Change to reflect how (not) being in control and acceptance are related. Not accepting Change may easily result in being / feeling out of control. Indeed,...
