Phil, would you say you're lucky or unlucky?

My life has been deliberately saved, on more than one occasion, I am not the sharpest tool in the shed, so no, luck has nothing to do with me being alive. If it were up to me, I would have died long ago.
The concept of luck, rests on the belief that causality does not exist, at least when one refers to it.
But if you mean, as some do, luck being a synonym for happy, relieved, or grateful, no. I saw the implications of that also, and eventually I ended up for a long time in a state of cognitive dissonance.
We are immersed in a social environment full of mythology. This mythology brings about associations which eventually become hard wired synaptically. It takes a long time to get it right. A real conceptual change has a lot of real physical changes to be made.
