8 Jan ’15 :Todays Q: IMPRISONED

How have you dealt with situations from which there seemed to be no way out?

I was told – “You have terminal melanoma. There is nothing known to medical science that can alter your survival probabilities. You could be dead in 6 weeks. ….”

That was not in either my “probable futures” or “desirable futures” lists.

It took a lot of acceptance.

I didn’t argue.

I accepted.

Then I looked for a way out.

I knew a lot about probabilities, and know that most distributions have long tails.

I simply decided to do whatever I reasonably could to get out on the end of the tail of that distribution.

Along the way, I have discovered that it seems entirely possible to re-define the curve – with high doses of Vitamin C. And that wasn’t where I started.

A bit similar with indefinite life extension, universal abundance and universal freedom. Now seems to me to be entirely possible and in accord with all the known laws of physics and biology – and it took a bit of work to get to the understanding I now have.
