So, I was listening to somebody talk about this. They said that luck and fate do not exist, but that the winner of a battle, coin toss or gamble is decided before it even starts, and that it is not luck that plays a part in anything.
For example, somebody pulls the lever on a slot machine. If they pull it as hard as they can and land on the jackpot, is this due to luck? If they had pulled the lever a bit less, a bit more, or had attempted the game at an earlier/later time, would the outcome have been different and why would the outcome have been different, because of luck or because of a right-place-at-the-right-time kind of scenario?
- Yes, I believe luck and fate exist
- No, luck and fate do not exist
Disclaimer- I am not talking about, or at least directly referencing the whole RTS pull system. If I had been, this wouldn’t be off topic. I’m talking about “luck” in general, and if it exists or if it’s all about one person winning a coin toss or game like that because of something they did deliberately that won them the game.
Sorry if this sounds confusing, I just want to see somebody else’s take on this whole thing.
