    to make a quote for this thread is a real pain in the ass,as you see:) anyways..
    he gave me a little part of Eternity part 3's lyrics not Eternity 1, sorry my mistake this time.
    ("So little time
    Your crystal eyes gaze into mine", isn't it nice :p)

    aaaand.. speaking up your amazing work on this thread, well I must admit you really picked up those songs which I'm deeply in love. Especially Pearl Jam's black is MY SONG.
    So yes I think you would have a chance :oops: ;)

    I'd rather go for some kind of teleological theory.I believe that the general thread of evebody's life is written.What we call luck is just the intervention of some Cosmic Joker,that likes to test us in order to learn,become stronger or wiser.

    (what we call)Good luck is something like a bonus of what was meant be,but a small amount is given for "free"(maybe an initiative to go on?)
    (what we call)Bad luck is something like Dante's Purgatory(or so i see it),where you have to go through in order to get wiser etc

    In many cases,these may seem ridiculous or cynical(in extreme cases i mean-serious injury,death),but,in final analysis,everything is done for a purpose.
    Here come what we call "coinsidences",which ,i believe,are just fate uncovered,that "want"to lead in one direction(one's life-thread).

    i shall not be mistaken for being a "slave" to this aspect of the subject,that "fate" is a term,used as an excuse(sympathy for the poor).
    I believe that those life-threads are roughly made,in order for personal contribution.Nothing is coming from the sky,just because god hates us or the opposite.We have to learn to take control of our lives,be masters of ourselves,earn what we get.Nothing is for free(cept for"lucky"moments that,seemingly,are for free).
    So,there are specific"stops"in everybody's life,where one is required to make specific choices(even if,by that time,they seem of no interest to us).
    So it's up to that person to carve his path kinda,serving fate's strange reasons again,but unknowingly"chosing" one of the many alternative scenarios(better or worse).

    Summarising,i believe there is fate,but it is not "strict".It depends on us, how we manage to build our lives(here come the reasons for struggling and keeping on living)and serve the purpose we are born for,which is and will remain the biggest secret of all...

    (of course the people who want to misunderstand this will do it anyway,so bollox to them.i just found a good chance to tell my opinion.and this is completely reasonable.cheers:) )

    yeah, agree, but i still think that there's a certain kind of bad luck that we can not change whatever we do...
    and some people are damn lucky...

    how, could you control the things that don't depend on you?

    it is. :guh:


    'Of all those who are born, most are so fortunate
    as to be sentenced to death
    For surely they are better off than those
    who are sentenced to life

    And yet...
    None are more free than they who in their lifetime
    rather than thereafter
    have found themselves from a sentence to life delivered

    For these are the few that live to be granted
    redemption.'

    – S.F.W. Nijhof

    'life is like my dick : sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's not'. that what one of my mates said once, and he was right.
