We all live in infinate universes....our own ONE, and the infinite possibility of others.
A higher percentage choosing either colour is irrelevant unless the experiment was repeated for ALL universes. (pwew, that's a lot of balls!).
A 50/50% choice would be rare, but not impossible.
The sum of the totals would also sometimes be less than 100% because you must factor in the "I just can't choose" character or the "sudden" heart
.....maybe even the odd "both, I like brown"
Can't see what it's got to do with "God" either unless god is your reason for infinity...
(yeah I know..."in the
You see, it's not a choice between just two colours is it? It also must take into account the subjects mood, the lighting, the floor colour, the
influance of those around, the possible consequence of the choice, the questioner, and are you free to choose, or like poor mr "O.P.", are you tied
to a chair
etc, etc, etc.....Impossible to predict any choice by an individual except with prior information.
Everything is as big as everything else, each is unique, and each has infinate possibility, and possibility is a constantly changing thing. Just like
absolutely everything else. Me thinks you'd need a very big blackboard. lol.
The future only exists as a concept...the past, as a memory....and they both constantly change, have you ever had exactly the same thought twice?. If
you have then I'm afraid to say "come in Nexus 6-145 your time is up!".
With all the future to come, and all the past that's been, we cling to the smallest dot at the point where they meet called present.
With the infinate possibilities of 1 human alone and the choices they could make based on their faculties, the only true question that needs asking is
to ourselves....do we trust that persons answer?
So the same impossible equasion rears it's head and we start again.
Personally, I believe that we all answer our own questions in having the choice to "file" and "process" the information as we each see fit.
There is no graph for the human race that could be used in the "ball" scenario, no pie charts or scribblings on a blackboard. We're not a line or
an angle or a tone or a coordinate.
Just little squishy "blobs" swarming around a little ball of dirt, spinning around a big light that is swirling into a "plughole" while going
nowhere fast in one of those (so-far) infinate universes. (the deluxe model).
I think I'd be wondering who's balls they were instead of what colour to choose and what horrible torture made one of them cold and the other one so
Nobody KNOWS what's coming, but it's possible to assume. Rightly or wrongly!
Great thread Parabol, star & flag. I love the BIG stuff wot makes my head hurt.
