Heisenberg uncertainty principle states a fundamental limit on the accuracy with which certain pairs of physical properties of a particle, such as position and momentum, can be simultaneously known. In other words, the more precisely one property is measured, the less precisely the other can be controlled, determined, or known.
Einstein said: "As I have said so many times, God doesn't play dice with the world."
Suddenly you're awake. But where are you? Everywhere you look there's white. White walls hug and confine you, stretching deeper and deeper, marking the boundaries of a straight, narrow, featureless hallway. You're bewildered, but who wouldn't be? Finally you stand and look behind you. All white, everything, going back to where it all vanishes. You push against the hard white floor, swaying and almost losing your balance because you've been asleep so long. Looking ahead, you realize the hallway is not exactly like it was behind you. Almost the same, but not quite. Way, way in the distance you can see some specks. And, reasoning that specks are better than nothing, you begin walking toward them. It takes a long time, but then the specks grow and define themselves. They have become signs, gold in color and arrow-shaped. They hang at the end of the hallway, and you can see lettering on them. Closer and closer you walk, until you can see that there's a second hallway perpendicular to the this one. One arrow points left and reads: "Casino." The other points right and reads: "Life." It's decisions like this that make you cry out for your mommy. Let me help. Turn right toward the real world, and I'll give you some advice as you're walking. In the future I'll provide plenty of strategy for winning at formal gambling, including some tips that will help you fare better inside the casino. But there's something you have to understand today. Gambling games are formalized, simplified ways of experiencing the same risks we experience in everyday life. If you're alive you gamble. Formally or informally, you gamble. Poker Without Cards. By the way, I absolutely never use any manipulative tactics that I teach against people I respect. Why? Because, having heard me lecture about these strategies, people would feel uncomfortable dealing with me. So, I deal with all friendly associates in a completely straightforward manner. I have to. You don't. Now here are some useful examples of gambling tips and philosophies I hope you'll successfully be able to adapt to the world around you.
1 The cards probably won't break even--not in gin rummy, not in poker, and not in real life. There's a common misconception that if you play poker long enough the cards will break even. Fat chance!
2 If you're a winner--in formal gambling or in life--you should never try to get even "for the night."
3 Never make anything worse
4 What you've already invested doesn't matter
5 Never seek sympathy
6 Keep your hand secret One of life's most important goals is to gain as much useful information from others as possible, while guarding your own secrets wisely.
7 Don't humiliate your opponents
8 Don't even the score In life you don't need to get even with the person who did you wrong
9 Act last
10 Save your fancy moves for when you're running good
11 Cheer for your friends
12 Don't fret over each injustice
