In my 42 years of existence, I have discovered to my chagrin- my oblivion towards human behavior is astounding. Economic theoretical principles are based on rational and predictable human behaviors. The scientific method is based on making observations or asking questions and forming and testing hypothesis. My methodology must be inherently flawed, my presumptions erroneous.
There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge... observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination. Denis Diderot
A sweet, loving charming girl, full of innocence and joy, who waiting for 3 hours during my classes, now has callously deem it fit to server all emotional and physical links.
I have discussed this woeful tale ad nauseam.
Perhaps ruminating as I walk to work through Tamar Park, she provided a great service. This emotion jolt/ slap is exactly what I need to push me away from my comfortable existence and give me momentum for rectification/ deviation of my current path.
I did not believe in fate, but now just like Diego Maradona's hand of god. There is an unknown power that moves ..are we the captain of our own destinies? to what extent do we control our fate?
I vow to change topics.
Good bye to the 2017 me.
