The illusion of control

The New York Times publishes more information in one year than all the information gathered in the 17th century.

Suffice to say, there is more information in the ether than we could ever consume. What we don’t know outweighs what what we do.

Endless possibilities and scenarios we cannot even imagine. Endless outcomes to every situation.

And yet…

Yet, the more control we think we have over a situation, the more optimistic we feel about the outcome.

But there is no control over what happens next. Only a prediction on what we think might happen.
