The probability that a lottery will win is often less than the chance of a lightning strike. To win a Lotto is just a matter of luck. Nonetheless, some people become obsessed with winning the lottery. Such people believe that they can find a new winning number from the lottery winning numbers that have already passed. You can see the behaviors that deteriorate due to obsessions, in the behavior of those who analyze past winning numbers and make statistics and find new numbers.

[Lotto: hope → Lotto analysis (obsession): foolish hope]


The numbers from the dreams go beyond looking for a lotto number or taking a favorite number, producing stats that are systematically visible. Furthermore, some people create patterns on lotto paper. However, those who are obsessed with this information want to conceal it, knowing that it is meaningless (or embarrassing).


When I saw patterns made up of meaningless lines that consisted of numbers on lotto paper, I decided that it was like a constellation in the night sky. The act of making patterns that look meaningful to past winning numbers that have already become meaningless is like creating a constellation by continuing a line between the stars. The act of clinging to finding a new number in the patterns is similar to the act of assigning meaning to a constellation that is not real, and of dividing the fate or future of the person through that meaning.



Constellation are seen as meaningless. Why, then, is it justification to cast fortunes through the constellation? Because this is usually pursued and I think it can have power.

As mentioned in the [Intro post], humans justify and package negative acts (or useless acts) that arise from their attachment through the act pursued ideologically. If people are able to watch and recognize their desire to hide their own actions and objects as actions and objects that are usually pursued, will they be able to face the presence of selfish self-interest?
