The concept of luck seems to be a possibility for things that we simply cannot explain: how to survive mortal experiences or happen with inventions that change the world. Although they don’t know why some people seem to be luckier than others.
Sometimes we witness events that are absolutely unlikely and hardly accidental. It seems someone designed these events so that they could only happen in a certain way.
