If you set the rule that the numbers 2,3,4,5,6,7 to be "low", "high", "black", "red" or "poop" does not matter.
Nor does it matter if these cards actually have the numbers 2,3,4,5,6,7, or if they are all red, black or a turd written on them. The fact remains
that each card will be considered as "black" or "red" or "low" or "high".
You don't have to keep track of the content of the cards. Only if it's black/red or low/high.
And yes, it is a given fact. You set the rules before you play.
They could also be 6 different shades of red, and you classify them as "red". Or they could be the same shade of red and you classify them as
"red". That's all you need to know.
I'm beginning to understand why some people believe in spirits, auras, ghosts and other things that do not require sound logical thinking. One simply
lacks the tools to realize what is real and what is not.
Red or black is a given fact. There is a given fact of 26 red, and 26 black. However, that fact is not 'real' when it comes to the numerical value
of the cards.
What on earth do you mean by "not 'real' "?
If a card has a '2' printed on it, then it has a '2' printed on it. It's a fact.
It is also a fact that there is a pre-determined number of cards with a '2', as there are reds (or diamonds).
It is also a fact that there is a pre-determined number of cards that are "low", as there are blacks (or clubs).
You can't keep track of the numbers the same way as you can the colors, regardless of whether there are 28 low or 24 high.
For the last time - you don't have to!
It makes no difference if you shout "red!" or "low!" before pulling out a card. There is no difference in the effort.
Shout "left!" or "right!" instead. And choose that 'low' means left. or 'red' means left. And after evaluating the result, put the card in
the left or right pile.
This is still the same thing, now you'll just be counting the number of "lefts" and "rights" instead of reds/blacks lows/highs.
Let's say this all is a product of my subconscious. It wouldn't necessarily be irrelevant, because technically I would be training the subconscious
mind to do things that my conscious mind can't. Hence, my subconscious mind controls powers, abilities, etc, that my conscious does not.
Well, apparently you do lack some skills in logical thinking, and if you are able to make your mind count cards better "without thinking", then good
But please, this is not your biggest problem at the moment.
Do as advised before and make sure the chances are 50/50 each time you pull a card and realize that you can't "beat" the game.
If you feel I am counting cards, and that is all there is to it. So be it. But I respectfully disagree.
You are. Or shuffling badly. As said, please perform proper 50/50 tests first and realize you cannot become better at it than random choice.
