Did you know that the
black swan theory is a metaphor?
It describes an event that is a surprise
(to the observer),
has a major effect,
and afterwards
is often inappropriately rationalized
with the benefit of hindsight that is.

The theory was developed by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.
He wrote a book with the title ' The Impact Of The Highly Improbable'.

Based on the Old World presumption that all swans must be white.
Because all historical records of swans
reported that they had white feathers.
In that context, a black swan
was impossible.
Or at least nonexistent.

And isn't just that still the way it goes in our daily life too?
For lots of people something doesn't exist
until you see proof with your own eyes...

I say
Is all around you
You only have to
