The older I get, the more I am aware of the fact that people usually tend to dislike or feel frightened by things they do not understand. A lot of people don't get why something works a certain way and the more one misses the general principle the more subjective fear is added to the object. Of course people have right to dislike and fear things, but dislike and fear only leads to a closed mind. Everything happens for a reason...I'd rather hate the reason, than object, but then even the reason has its reason...

Cause and effect is not dependent on failure or success. Whether what you did failed or not, cause and effect is still something yout can learn from. Just don't use it for the same purpose. Don't just dismiss it as "not valid" as that's short sighted to your particular problem. It may be useful info elsewhere and if you just dismissed it because it failed you don't learn how the world works, just how to accomplish a single task. Lessons learned shouldNT just be on success vs failure, but what was learned and understood irregardless of success vs failure. Learning is not just about what worked or what didnt, it's about cause and effect irregardless of desired outcome.Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.

I snickered when I saw a certain someone get a 3 month ban. Bout damn time!"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.

Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.
