Maybe history doesn’t always repeat itself.

But it does at least rhyme.

Mark Twain.

There came a point in the past where an entitled women gave up her position and accepted a humble life because she realised what the man knew was worth more than what she had.

So, where in history has that story been told before and do we think it will happen now?


  1. Does a woman give up her job, because he earns more.

    I have an example in my own life.
    Due to my partners carrier.
    We had to move further, then further, away from my work.
    Eventually the work, and the travel became to much for me.
    Despite my earning more, I for a time, gave up work.
    Being the stay at home parent.
    Should I have I said no to her choice, for my own needs.
    We’re my needs, more important than her needs.
    In my own case, supporting my partners choice.
    Was a far better, long term choice, for a family.
    Living rent free in the country, vs the rat race of city living.

    We started in a derelict rental, for her first farming job.
    Now she manages her own business.
    All I was doing was earning money.
    She was creating things.

    Many relationships will face, similar choices.
    Some don’t survive the decisions.
    The new job, in a new place, common.
    For me then it’s the opposite, of women playing the secondary role.

    Her job the priority, my money earning ability irrelevant.

  2. Does history repeat itself, or at least rhyme.
    Or could you use a different term than rhyme.

    Buddha refers to Karma.
    The sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.

    That could apply to many things, even events.
    An economist may see trends, that preceded recession in the past.
    Behaving in a similar way, rhyming.

    One could predict outcomes, even predetermine them.
    Changing Karma, changing fate.

    Are things even more complex, than just a rhyme.
    Is it equal or opposite.
    Does it go forward, or backward.
    Does it happen faster, or slower.
    Is it better or worse.
    Is it good or bad.

    What then of the statistical miracle.
    Certainly even the rarest event.
    Will repeat itself.

  3. In my personal life, I have been betrayed.
    Which usually means, I have done something wrong.
    And in my case, my partner has found out.
    At least I was honest, and confessed.

    I am constantly amazed, at how sane people imagine things.
    I thought things, may have happened.
    Hence you are guilty, of the imagined things as well.
    As the thinker, felt the emotions as if it happened.

    What is imaginary, has become real enough to the thinker.
    That is why the insane, think the sane are crazy.

  4. #2 I have been thinking about, the statistical miracle.

    As we all experience them, with very random flukes we see.
    Things really do happen, one in a billion times.

    But what is the limit, to the statistical miracle.
    If someone claims they are Jesus, they are not Jesus.
    Think of all the atoms even electrons, having to reassemble itself.
    The numbers are insane, for it all to be correct.
    Then to all find that one human, it’s impossible.
    And I do think that’s stated, in the bible.
    My guess some human, has to become an empty vessel.
    So it can be filled, with the sins of humans.
    Apparently it will have, it’s own name.

    We even attribute slang, to statistical miracles.
    The godlike, performance getting the world record.
    The miracle shot, caught on camera.
    Flukes it in a horrible crash, walking away unharmed.
    The cat with nine lives, surviving many accidents already.

    Evolution must have statistical miracles, in its timeline.
    That one bit of radiation, that made a big change.
    The only man, or only woman survivor.
    The person who accidentally combined things, and saw something new.
    Inventing fire, or even the simple wall.

    Actually pretty much exactly, two thousand years has gone by.
    If not now, then when.

  5. This morning, I reached my distance limit.
    So as I must act, I can now begin writing.
    And I will try to do the hard bits, this weekend.
    That may become a little slow, as my health is a problem.
    I must take my time, thinking each bit out.
    And behave much better, towards myself.
    Otherwise I may not be functional, when I need to be.

  6. I just reviewed the crimes act, for arguments.
    And if my mind said yes, I can make arguments.
    Then I copied the law into notes, for reference.
    I got to 26 laws, so have at least that many arguments.

    I have a lot of work, ahead of me.

  7. I have been sick, with the flu.
    Something I haven’t experienced, for many years.
    So haven’t made, to much progress.
    I may have cursed myself, in #5.

    “That may become a little slow, as my health is a problem.”
