Why Can't Psychics Win the Lottery?
So how does this apply to winning the lottery? Well, for starters, lottery numbers are extraordinarily random and so statistically challenging, that the human brain is simply not capable of processing that kind of information. It would be like trying to live-stream 1,000 television shows simultaneously through an old dial-up Internet connection. It’s simply not going to happen. Of those 1,000 shows, you may get a 30 second clip from one, IF you’re lucky.
But even IF your brain were talented enough to actually receive the numbers, there is always the issue of destiny. If you’re not destined to become wealthy, the numbers, no matter how talented you are, will not come to you. The universe, or God, or whatever you believe in, only ever provides you with what is meant for you. So if your path in life is to experience what it’s like to struggle and find meaning in the simpler things in life, then winning the lottery won’t be part of your path.
There are two other scenarios, which I’d like you to consider:
The first is that even if winning the lottery is potentially part of your future, if you don’t believe that you deserve the wealth, your mind will filter out the winning numbers because it will perceive them as a threat to your comfort level, despite how badly you may want it.
Here’s another option: Suppose you want to win the lottery. You truly believe you deserve the wealth, but still you can’t seem to conjure up the winning numbers. You do some soul-searching and realize that deep down inside, you are terrified of change. Winning the lottery would certainly change your life, so your brain filters out the numbers to protect your status quo.
Make sense? With so many variables, the likelihood of any psychic, no matter how talented they may be, predicting winning lottery numbers is next to nothing. I won’t venture to say it’s impossible, but statistically, you’d have a better chance of sprouting a set of superhuman wings and learning to fly.
