    the dieties are of the realms.
    They are much like demi-gods, they rule
    but only of their netherworld on the Wheel of Death. they rule- but have no power over karma

    And you chalk up this to your supreme prowess ---and not to miraculous and in-explicable good fortune?

    Do you take the miraculous and in-explicable as due to you?

    No. I see it as 'Roll of the Dice'. (if there was a 'God', why would he Reward the Non-Believers?)

    You make a living on gambling?

    "Reward" ---what is meant by this?

    Reward a baby with good parents? Is that what you mean?

    It's a freewill cosmos.

    Driving off the cliff is an ABSOLUTE LAW OF LIVING: Don't drive off cliffs. End.

    Now you can learn more about such laws if you're inclined to search for a professor


    [DYK a phd professorship requires a published book?].
