It's like seeing a card game from outside while still being a player(non-linear time), recalculating the odds of probability on a moment to moment basis from that perspective, then by play(linear time) and body influence, increasing the odds to the player's advantage of outcome...in effect-controlling and utilizing the environment and affecting the result of probability.
It is the same with life as it is with cards. Knowing and understanding it is a path(key) to success.
Reminds me of a game some guys asked me to join them with... I had never played cards, nor knew any rule, but simply told them if they really want to loose, OK. They did. It was poker. And they couldn't believe had I won. Well... a bit like when I was mocked for not having a drink. So told them to fill the glass with whisky. I drank it, they gasped. Said I didn't even pull a face, and it didn't affect me. Life must be tuning in...?
