Scientific blame game…Grim
Like Schrödinger’s cat, at any given point in life, you will succeed and fail at the same time but you can’t succeed AND fail at the same time because the space-time representation of failure and success on the line showing the spatial location of actions at every instant in time can’t have two dependent actions happening at the same time in the same sense. It would be against the laws of non contradiction so basically, you are rigged from the start to make a decision to fail OR succeed but the action of deciding is influenced by an observer who forces nature to collapse to one option because the difference between existence and nonexistence is observation. Unless observation occurs, matter remains in a state of quantum superposition. If you Wikipedia it, Quantum Superposition is a fundamental principle of quantum mechanics that holds that a physical system—such as an electron—exists partly in all its particular theoretically possible states (or, configuration of its properties) simultaneously; but
when measured or observed, it gives a result corresponding to only one of the possible configurations. Observation kills Schrödinger’s cat or keeps it alive and since you can’t be your own observer. You can’t write your own story in the scientific universe another entity observes your state of indicisiveness and puts you out of limbo. They observe. They observe and make you a failure or a success. What I’m really saying is, it’s totally okay to blame someone else (or something) for failing in life.
