Yes indeed, life sometimes seems less a cabaret and more a steeplechase lottery, where we are all both runners and punters, some of whom fall at the first fence or never even get that far and luck plays as big a role as skill, much like disease and history.

Interesting point Chris and fits nicely with a book I am currently reading - "Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind" by Yuval Noah Harari. He does not support the deterministic view of History. We will rarely (if ever) know why, for example, Constantine chose Christianity over a myriad of other monotheistic religions. Most of History defies explanation. We know it happened but we don't know why. Events are haphazard stuff that we try and make sense of. But nothing was inevitable
