LIVING IN UNCERTAINITY






It is possible to predict the future actions by the analysis of past actions but it cannot be done with absolute accuracy. The element of uncertainty is always there which makes the life interesting. This uncertainty can be taken as a ‘hope against all odds’ to survive. We do get (pleasant or unpleasant) surprises due to this. A 100% correct prediction of behavior of a system is possible theoretically in machine only not in human beings. There also, it is based on the assumptions that the forces acting on it (the environment) will not change. In case of human being there are forces which suddenly come to action from a dormant state. A simple trigger can activate a very powerful force which can affect the course of future actions dramatically.

But it is also true that whatever is being executed by the body is scripted in mind much before it is executed. The body acts on command which is issued by the mind. All our actions are triggered by a command from mind which is generally a portion of a larger group/chain of commands stored for execution.

So why everything that comes to our mind does not turn into reality? There are reasons for this-

1. Individual limitations – Every individual has got potential to act according to his/her desires. But what happens when action of one person will harm the freedom of others? So the society restricts our actions to a great extent through the framework of written/unwritten rules. Compare this with the governance of a democratic country. Every citizen has got the potential to become the head of state but at one time only ONE holds the post. Similarly a shareholder of any company has the potential of decision making for that company but there are many others too, so his/her powers are curtailed dramatically.

2. Combined effect- Normally in the active memory of a running computer system there are several software program work simultaneously. Same is the case with human mind where several thought patterns are active at one time. Due to this situation there are two possibility which works against the very purpose of the thought patterns -‘transforming it to action’. Firstly result of some thought pattern may negate the effect of other. We do have conflicting thought patterns operating in our mind so the result achieved is a overall or combined effect of all these. Secondly there are notorious thought patterns which grab the unfair portion of our attention and become active most of the time thus denying many other genuine thought patterns to become active. In the worst case there are some thought pattern which destroy/overwrite the contents of commands (waiting to be executed) written by other thought patterns. Compare it with the working of virus & destructive software programs in a computer system. But this capability of our system of rewriting the script (commands waiting for execution) is very helpful in the case of emergency and incase of sincere ‘change of mind’ before the thought pattern is executed.

Since there is always an element of uncertainty attached with future and there is also an uncertainty about the transformation of all desires of an individual, we should learn to live in uncertainty to some extent. I am not suggesting that we do not plan or calculate to achieve our selected goals. We should be ready to accept and embrace the changes in our lives.

Change is the only constant in this dynamic world (Will this statement ever change?).

  2. I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
