logic and luck

Posted on: September 8, 2009

Well I have been thinking about it a lot in my free time. I have come to some obvious conclusions. I should start thinking from here now onwards. First let me define what is logic and luck according to me.
By logic, I mean reasoning. 1+1=2 is logic. Earth rotates around Sun because of gravitational force is logic. We need to oxygen for digestion is logic. Logic can be explained. If it cannot be explained, then it is not logic.

By the same argument, what cannot be explained can be called as luck. Many times we say a person is born talented, that is luck. Why should someone get cancer, that is luck. Why should Earth be exactly at such a distace that all conditions favour for growth of organisms, that is luck.

So what is the relation between the two, logic and luck? The relation is the understanding of things around us. Hundreds of years ago, no one could explain the cause of lightning and they used to consider it as a way Rain God shows his anger. So it was luck then. But now lightning does not scare anybody. So it is logic now. Hence as time progresses, more and more things are understood by humans. This leads us to believe that some or the other day, humans will be able to solve all the mysteries of nature and hence nullify the concept of luck. Theoretically, yes this should be possible. After all that is what we have learned in maths. Any variable can be easily extended to infinity to get an ideal case. But now what is that ideal case equal to. Isnt that is what we call God. He can explains us everything that happens in this world. He has created everything here and he has designed everything so beautifully for us. So is it wrong in believing in him and having trust in him.

Let us see it from another point of view. When we are small, we believe in our parents and whatever they say. They are god for us then. But as we grow up and start gaining knowledge more than them, we dont believe in them any longer and keep searching for logic ourselves. In this juncture some believe in God but some believe themselves to be God. The latter happens because they think that since they have gained knowledge more than their earlier gods( their parents), they can reach the ideal situation of gaining infinite knowledge and hence can themselves become god. But what they forget is that they havent yet reached the ideal situation.

I had drifted away from my main point. I wrote this blog to mention what I think is the right equation for logic and luck.
Logic + Luck = Nature .
By nature, I mean everything. Everything that we see and we observe. I will call this equation of truth as this is what is truth. Infact a better way to put the equation would be
Logic + Luck = Truth .

Here I have not mentioned another important factor which is Love. This cannot be categorized either in logic or in luck. I need to figure where it will appear in the equation and I am sure that the equation will then be complete. :).
