Real world has not defined rules, anything can happen, ypu are exposed to many risks they can rule your fate. Games of chance at the examples can be analized

Do you live your own life in accordance with the philosophy of fate? Or is this just something you wrote on the Internet this evening? Yes, constrained domains in which we know the rules are easier to analyze. That does not necessarily mean that life and the universe have no rules. Only that we, like the blindfolded coin guesser, don't know the rules. Last edited by Maschke; March 19th, 2019 at 09:23 PM.

ps  Sorry if my philosophical musings got too far off the topic. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable about statistics and probability can respond to your point about 2.5 standard deviations.

There are many other conditions that could work in real world. It sometimes does not follow rules. Unexpected events could happens. A casino game or a coin flip have less hidden conditions. Our fate obeys to many random variables. When you sucess it is all skill, when you miss is bad luck. A common thinking. I know many decision in your life, right or wrong had some random help. Sucessfull people were inrolled in a list a when up to their carreer due to skill+luck. You do not hear from the ones who left the way to success, but, a smart man come over again to compete. Thanks for you replies. I know my example is not easy
