Pascal’s Wager

6 January, 2008

“To turn Pascal’s wager on its head, it seems that,
when in doubt,
the best strategy is to assume that these 70 or so years are our only chance to experience the cosmos,
and we should make the fullest use of it.
For if we don’t, we might lose everything;
whereas if we are wrong and there is life beyond the grave, we lose nothing.”

(Mihály Csíkszentmihályi)
