Quoting Paul Slovic, “Risk does not exist out there, independent of our minds and culture, waiting to be measured. Human beings have invented the concept of risk to help them understand and cope with uncertainties of life. Although these dangers are real, there is no such thing as ‘real risk’ or objective risk.”
If risk is not objective then why not live with ‘hope’ that signifies optimism.? Why not forget about any uncertainty and just keep moving? Its like living in present tense.
My status on Facebook in 2010 reads, “I define my life as a markov chain- next state contingent only on current state”.
