Luckism is a philosophical system designed to guide people through life by increasing consciousness of the importance of the unknowable, the unpredictable and the uncontrollable in the natural operation of the universe. This understanding provides standards by which to judge the demands made by systems such as government, science, corporations and religions. It leads to the wisest and most harmonious possible conduct.

The Essence of Luckism

The Essence of Luckism

Natural, unpredictable and uncontrollable chance is a fundamental part of life. It must be given more consideration in all actions than is presently the case. This leads to wisdom in coping with the challenges of life and promotes a healthy attitude towards the dominant world systems, including science, government, corporations and religion. Luckism balances the excessive demands of other systems and increases the likelihood that natural, harmonious and healthy actions will be taken in personal and public affairs. In the rest of this section we explain the need for Luckism and how it was designed. [The proofs of Luckism are in "The Proofs." The practices are in "Practicing Luckism."]

The Proofs Of Luckism

The Proofs Of Luckism

Luckism's validity is proven both by personal experience (the operation of chance in daily life) and by scientific facts (evidence from fields such as Physics and Mathematics). They all indicate that unpredictable chance is a basic, unknowable and uncontrollable component of the universe. These facts support Luckism's paradoxical and numinous conclusion that natural, unpredictable and uncontrollable chance must be given much more weight in life than at present. In the rest of this section we detail the proofs which make Luckism both believable and continually inspiring. [The methods used by Luckism are detailed in "Practicing Luckism."]

Practicing Luckism

The practice of Luckism has two parts. First are the private or group practices which confirm the validity of its fundamental principles. Luckists find this confirmation on the frontiers of science, in world events, in contact with nature, in direct relations with other living things, in sublimated games of chance and in aleatory guidance methods. The second type of practices are those actions which apply Luckism's principles for bettering the world and improving one's personal life. Here are some details of the two types of practices:
