My 2 paisas

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. :).


A point has no dimensions. A line has a single dimension. A square has 2 dimensions. A plane has three dimensions. More the dimensions, more the complexity of that entity. Life is such a complex entity. Imagine its number of dimensions. It might be countless but somehow the way in which nature runs, it makes me feel that it is not infinity. May be it is an enity with variable dimensions. Interesting. With life having so many features by itself, i am sure, it can be divided into smaller parts which have less dimensions and hence less complex. For example, How much a child is gonna weigh after about 5 years from now, can be decided by its food habits, daily habits and many more parameters. Again we might end up with having lots of parameters to play with but it is definitely less then the number of parameters on which life is dependent as a whole. Infact the parameters of life themselves are entities which have thier own parameters, which again are entities which have thier own parameters and so on. My present intentions are to concentrate on parameters that luck depend on. I have found 2 importent parameters. One is hard work. This one i got it from one of my favorite quote-harder u try, luckier u get. Second parameter is a more vague parameter. Or u can call it as an entity by itself. It is the fight between ur brain and ur conscience. U can lie to everybody in this world, sometimes even to urself. But u will realize it someday. What u do after that realization is the parameter that i am considering. will elaborate on it some other day. let me see if i can find more parameters to find the equations of luck.
