Its a 1 in a 1,000,000 chance you will get hit by a meteor in your lifetime. Even less likely it will happen today.

So, what is the chance that at some point today something, anything, will happen to you that has a 1 in a 1,000,000 chance of happening or more? In other words, how often does a day go by where something nearly impossible happens... well, the answer is it is pretty much guaranteed.

In fact every moment you are experiencing countless events that have a one in a million chance or more of happening. Try and wrap your head around that :)

@freemo And then.. there's an infinite number of actions that could possibly occur...

@elixx Yup, exactly. Which is why there is an infinite number of rare things happening to you in any moment :)


@freemo @elixx most of them aren't particularly interesting though because they don't alter the course of your life

I'm not so sure about that, even small things might have a butterfly effect and all.


I agree - we aren't keen to a lot of dimensionalities. Second-order cybernetics would suggest that systems are comprised of systems of interconnected systems.
Nudge a knob and watch the changes cascade...
