It is nothing less than fantastic the way mathematical odds add up. For instance take the possibility of making a mistake in making a telephone call. Most local exchanges require seven digits which is accomplished in four or five seconds. The phone has ten digits on it. The mathematical formula of possibilities is ten to the seventh power which is 10000000 or it is 9999999 to 1 that you would enter a wrong number if you didnt know what you were doing. Add the four digits to get a long distance number and it becomes 100000000000. Mortality which fortunately lasts for most of us many times that four or five seconds that it takes to place a telephone call is also full of chances to make mistakes. Fortunately too the path through mortality is well marked and we can with exercising care get to where we all desire to be at the end of mortality.
