The Theory of Luck
Luck 100 = [karma 4 + modesty 1] x [desire 4 + actions 4 + abilities 4 + contribution 4 + blessings 4]


Everyone - theist or atheist - wants to know that luck is real and how it works, right?
GOD=7_4, 7/4=July 4th or 7 April 30 AD: Good(7__4) Friday(74) when Jesus(74=J10+E5+S19+U21+S19) was nailed on(74) the Cross(74=C3+R18+O15+S19+S19).

GOD=7_4 algorithm/code produces Earth's 7 continents & 4 seasons, 4 lunar phases of 7 days (~7.4 days) each, Venus .7 AU & Mercury .4 AU, etc.

Why is this crap in the science forum?

Envisage,

Luck is real; it's now been proven through exhaustive data that confirms the hypothesis and it has been successfully expressed through a mathematical equation. Luck has been proven real through the scientific method.

You are now part of a HUGE scientific experiment! Your karma will result in your experiencing very bad luck and not being reincarnated as human for a looooooong time. And when you are born-again as human, it will be under very hellish circumstances.

Now we sit back for a couple hundred years and observe your eternal soul.

Envisage,

I have accumulated a great deal of evidence to prove There Are No Coincidences - there is synchronism, design and alignment as well as proving the Theory of Luck.

Cite the scientific literature supporting a theory of luck. The book "The Black Swan" discusses the occurrence of improbable events. One might think that a lucky guy might wipe out a Nevada casino in a short time. Not only has it never happened, the risk is not worth considering. The laws of statistics are iron clad. What casinos really have to worry about are events like fires and bombings, low probability events with large consequences. That's the Black Swan problem.

Maybe your so called "evidence" is just a coincidence, or a matter of luck.

Is there anything original about your version of this old argument?

It's not about the originality of theology, UR. It's about how special it makes you feel.

And theology can make narcissism feel very, very special.

Ask anyone.

I really have no idea about theology, as you can probably tell. But if it has something to do with feeling special, then all I can say is that feeling special due to the beliefs you hold or your circumstances alone can never replace the self-worth one derives from their own accomplishments and the contributions they make to the lives of other people. Any reason one would give for even accepting in themselves a feeling of pride or self-esteem based on anything less than what I stated is likely to seem to me a flaccid excuse for not having succeeded at least in a small way to make the world a better place for at least some people in reality.

Just a personal view, but I think most people feel powerless for much of their lives. So the idea that their good intentions or their very beliefs are somehow making a better world can be very comforting. It doesn't necessarily improve their agency, and may do nothing for the outcome, but can make them feel a valued part of something greater, and perhaps hold some resilience for tomorrow.

Especially, when people start saying everything is benevolently predestined, or there's a final judge who'll tally it all up and hand out rewards and punishments, or it's all part of some wonderful plan, then perhaps they're actually saying: I'm helpless, I'm anguished, I'm desperate, and I need comfort now.

luck is just probability and random chance. Karma and reincarnation have nothing to do with it.

Few things:

Firstly, I'm unable to find any scientific sources for the equation. The only things I found is Brad proposing the equation on multiple forums. I can't even find another person proposing it, let alone a scientist. Please state your sources.

Secondly, by mathematical convention, it would be better to express the equation in the form of:
Luck = (4 karma + 1 modesty) x (4 desire + 4 actions + 4 abilities + 4 contribution + 4 blessings) / 100

Thirdly, any mathematical expression requires its variables to be quantifiable. I fail to see how luck, karma, modesty, desire, actions, abilities, contribution, and blessings can be quantified. Also, they are not clearly defined. Please provide clear definitions and method of quantifying them.

Lastly, I fail to understand why luck is described by this particular characterization. Why is luck the weighted sum of karma and modesty multiplied against the sum of desire, action, etc? Why are these weighting assigned to each variable? Please explain clearly.

Until you do so, you will have a hard chance convincing me, and everyone else, that your equation is valid.

Cheers,
Dizzy Knight

DizzyKnight,

I AM the scientist/mathematician that discovered the Theory of Luck and I have been experimenting with it for over 10 years.

The equation in the form that I presented it mathematically correct, although it does also work as...

Luck = [4 karma + 1 modesty] x [4 desire + 4 actions + 4 abilities + 4 contribution + 4 blessings] = 100

The dictionary definition of these terms is quite adequate; I AM not rewriting the dictionary.

I suggest that you and everyone experiment yourself with this equation and then come to your own conclusion. Just one example of many where I was very lucky was this summer when I made a hole-in-one on an 186 yard par 3. Every golfer recognizes how luck is involved in the game.

Rubikx,

Wrong. There is much more going on than "luck is just probability and random chance"! Chaos theory (and other theories) tell us that everything is connected and there's only an appearance of randomness. Karma and reincarnation have everything to do with one's luck. The law of karma is as real as the law of gravity. Reincarnation has been proven by science.

Karma is a Buddist concept the Christian parallel idea is you reap what you sow.
Both of these notions come from a human desire for justice .
Most sensible people can see there is no justice in the world as you will often hear quoted. The only way to rectify this sad conclusion is to postulate an after life or some sort of continuation after death where injustice can be put right.
We must remember justice itself is a purely human concept nature is amoral
