It's a Gamble - Great? Gruesome?
Gambling - Essential, Addictive, Destructive

It would be convenient to come up with a simple answer. Gambling is awful. Or, gambling is wonderful.

Maybe I'll start with my conclusion. Without gambling we'd still be living in caves. Actually, we might never have gotten into caves. Quite a gamble, entering a cave. Who knows what one might find?

My conclusion. The gambling impulse is one of our greatest strengths. But that impulse comes with a great potential danger. The gambling impulse is like hunger – we need to feel hunger, or we'd starve. But when the hunger impulse gets divorced from the need for food, it's a huge problem.

Good reasons why people gamble? Anything new, anything uncertain, involves risks. Day after day, many of us move through uncertainties. We make choices. We take a gamble that we're making the right ones.

English, over and over, recognizes the positive side of gambling. We say thing like: Love is a gamble. Life is a gamble. He gambled everything for love. It's not just in language. We may devote our lives in a gamble that our efforts will lead to something valuable. Christopher Columbus. Pasteur. Marie Curie.

3 Big Questions:

* Why the massive destructive power of the gambling impulse?

* Can we have the gain without the pain?

* How do we stack the odds in our favor?

The Idea Emporium -
on the pros and cons of gambling

Gambling at a casino, at a bingo hall, with weekly lotteries - that is gambling to lose.
But it cuts off valuable exploration if we go right on to the negative effects of gambling.

When someone searches out a treatment for a major illness, that's a gamble.

How do we keep the baby while throwing out the bath water?

THE IDEA EMPORIUM
A CELEBRATION OF GOOD THINKING

THE IDEA EMPORIUM
NO HOLDS BARRED THINKING

THE IDEA EMPORIUM
LOOK AT ANYTHING, ASK ANYTHING

LOOK ANYWHERE

PLUS, LOOK AT THE JOURNEY

 

 

"It is a fact readily acknowledged,
that for humans,
an idea is much more powerful
than a fact."

 

WHEN I HEARD THAT,
I HAD A EUREKA MOMENT.
YES, I HAD SEEN THAT SO OFTEN.

 

SOME OF US ALREADY LOVE GOOD THINKING.

BUT GOOD THINKING IS POSSIBLE
FOR ALMOST ALL OF US,
JUST LIKE EVEN A COUCH POTATO
CAN GET INTO SHAPE!

SO, FOR THE THINKERS
AND THE POTENTIAL THINKERS

including those who are exploring, along with me,
the pros and cons of gambling,
the good things about gambling, the benefits of gambling,
along with the negative effects of gambling, the psychology of gambling addiction.
