The Zero Sum Game

Life is a Zero Sum Game. We think we have won, when in reality we have lost. The choice of our visit to Planet Earth is to experience Life in the Human form. The first loss is when we forget this is to experience and we spend a lifetime collecting, collections which we never truly own.

In the above graph: the x axis expresses lifespan, while the y axis expresses earnings.
Genesis 3:19  By the sweat of your brow you will eat. (Thou shall earn by the sweat of thy brow).
  1. Here, it is important to understand that one can only eat by the sweat of one’s own brow. Earnings through any other means will not last.
  2. Earnings are predetermined. Rate of earning is a choice we make.
  3. Lifespan is the number of heartbeats allotted to oneself. Time as we calculate, is of no consequence. We can stretch the time between two heart beats from 1 second to 10 seconds and have increased our lifespan 10 fold or vice-versa.
The ideal earning situation would be where earning is incremental with life time, and is generated until the end of one’s life.(the Green line in the graph)
Those who have wealth thrust on them at an early stage in life, reach their predetermined earning early in life. Earnings if not used well, the descent can be steep, and the remaining part of his/her life can be in penury.(the red line in the graph)
Some will struggle or laze throughout their lifetime, and not achieve the predetermined earnings. They are then thrust in situations to ensure they achieve the target even if at the end of their life. To fulfill this, their earning can be received either as a Donation, a Gift or Lottery.(the blue line in the graph)

The slopes can vary, but these are the three basic lines.
