The power of the mind can move mountains. They say that if you want something hard enough, then the universe will conspire to make it happen.

My question is this, "what if someone else in this vast universe wants the opposite just as hard?" What happens then. Who does the universe listen to?

And all that jazz about if it has to happen, it eventually will, someway, somehow. What if two minds are wishing and praying for two different things? What "eventually happens" then?

How does the universe make up its mind? :)

I seem to think that a coin toss is the answer. All our lives are decided by a coin toss. That's how the universe decides who to listen to. It throws a coin into the air and a heads or a tails decides who it is going to listen to *shrugs*

Worth thinking about right?

A few days back I changed it. Just experimenting :) Like? No like?

I'm coming. We'll discuss this. Because I have arguments lined up and all :P Because I don't like the concept and all :)

Well, so if one fine day I wish I want to live on till say 115 years, and wish it hard; it happens? Screw 'The Secret'.

The universe is something one would, in mathematics, refer to as a chaotic system, rendering any sort of long-term prediction impossible.

In short, everything is probably a game of dice- the catch being, sometimes the dice are loaded.

@ surreptitious - interesting thought. Dice, coin toss.

I came across this very interesting quote like thing about tossing a coin; was reminded of it on reading this post.

"What will you do when faced with two choices?
Simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you... but because in that brief moment when the coin is in the air,
you suddenly know what you're hoping for."
