When you take a detour.
This is the second in a series of posts reflecting on the general decline of civility. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
I’ll start by providing a small clarification on the notion of fatality before I get into civility. Obviously, I’m not a determinist based on arbitrary choices. Existence of a god/gods or not? It doesn’t matter and it’s bigger than us anyway, like all of the physical interactions in the universe. Would a god have created these interactions? Possibly, but again, this is beyond my comprehension and I only focus on the things I can understand, hence my fatalism.
At some point, you have to let go of the “too big”, the “too complex”. I experience it every day at work, too much complexity, even if 1 in 100 people understand it, what’s the point in asking others for a leap of faith? If you imagine being at the bottom of a hill and a huge rock starts rolling down the hill. There are indeed calculations and laws that govern the course of events and nothing is left to chance, everything is calculable. As long as we have all the information and data, everything is determinable. On the other hand, carrying out the calculations before the rock hits us is impossible and we won’t be able to be certain of the trajectory.
To be continued…
