synthetic zero

October 1st, 2008

It’s strange days indeed these days. Human beings, for some reason, tend to underestimate the frequency of rare events, and even after they occur we go back to the presumption of normality.  We get used to the fact that incredible events have occurred in the past, but somehow assume they will not recur in the future.  Here we are, however, living through a series of incredible events (though, they’re events that ought to have been foreseen).  I hope we’ll remember this … and remember that seemingly incredible things happen with surprising frequency.
