In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing. – Theodore Roosevelt
Mind Map of a Project
Real Life Risks
Darwin claims that the natural purpose of every living being is the preservation of itself (survival instinct) and the species to which it belongs (breeding / self-preservation).
The concepts of “Selection” and “Adaptation” explain by what strategies the nature allows the continuity of more highly evolved species, through the identification of the specific value developed by each species and its ability to adapt to the context and to the environment in continuous change.
So if we take for true that the tendency to the preservation of every individual and its survival are inborn in every living being, we can surely state that in the evolution of each species some well defined strategies have been outlined in order to address threats if necessary and continuing to change the living being from within.
Resistance to change
“Oggi l’apparire della meccanica statistica, della teoria dei quanti, della meccanica ondulatoria, ha messo in discussione la causalità e il determinismo, rompendo il magnifico isolamento della previsione scientifica per ravvicinarla attraverso graduali concessioni alle comuni previsioni o congetture della vita pratica. Non vi è più nella previsione scientifica, una certezza assoluta; v’è soltanto una certa probabilità che può al massimo divenire tanto grande da meritare il nome di certezza pratica.”
“Tutto ciò che non si riduca ad una semplice constatazione, a una verità storica isolata, tutto ciò che ci guida verso il futuro, persino la credenza che nell’uscire da questa stanza vedremo come sempre le stesse strade e le stesse case allo stesso posto, tutto ciò costituisce un giudizio di probabilità che è basato, forse inconsciamente e indistintamente, sui principi del calcolo della probabilità. Questo calcolo costituisce perciò il fondamento della maggior parte del nostro pensiero..”
It is clear at this point how much in every day we live, consciously or unconsciously, we use the thought and its ability to predict, calculate and control the degree of probability of events which have occurred or may occur in the future in every sphere that form our lives.
So it is necessary, to address in the best way what lies ahead, to keep on questioning ourselves, never take anything absolutely for granted but try to control every possible event trying to predict and remaining ready to react to any unexpected changes.
I feel like saying, finally, that this general ability to forecast, combined with the calculation of probability, is one of our biological weapons, in Darwinian terms, that we have developed over time and that we have to use against uncertainty; a necessary tool to guide us in any future activity.
