found the I Ching definition of “fate” and “exhaustion” very meaningful


This is interesting, because I Ching (Confucious) doesn’t always defer to something called “fate’. as is common in Western traditions. No, fate is a specific condition, and only happens at a certain juncture – when there is absolutely nothing that can be done.  It’s mathematical reality, as opposed to something like “diplomats” fall back on when they want to go to war.

It’s much more like the Jewish situation in the Holocaust: there was nothing to do.
