      What is the importance of Attitude?

      Are our attitudes a victim of our circumstances, or vice versa? Or is the relationship transactional? What is the nature of this relationship?

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      I think we're definitely victims of naturally inclined attitudes (temperament?). Inclined not meaning all the time of course, just a kind of individual homeostasis. Though, I think they may be dynamic through time. Circumstances are powerful influences to this, but they seem more short-lived.

      Yeah homeostasis is a good word for it. We orbit general attitudes and our circumstances slowly grow to reflect these attitudes. I want to say there's a reflective nature about life but I'm attempting to avoid faulty reasoning. It's clear we get what we think about most of the time, and its clear our own confidence and doubt have a supreme effect. So I guess the only thing that becomes mystical is our attitude's effect on chance.

      Complexity Theory argues that causality has a near infinite number of variables making effect impossible to predict with any accuracy. While I agree with this, I don't think the number of variables are nearly infinite. I think they are infinite. And furthermore I think they are affected by our attitudes. But this is not an easy argument to make. There's certainly plenty of proof of this, if you research through the right channels, but it's difficult to summarize what precisely is at play without beginning from the assumption that the mind exists outside the brain and reality exists inside the mind.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      I don't think complexity theory has any affect on my attitude, at least not today. Being a victim of your own attitude is also unfortunate but by no means normal or even healthy, but I doubt your everyday attitude is actually so repulsive or disagreeable that the response people give you in the "real world" makes you feel like a victim, but if that's true then you definitely need an attitude adjustment or you just overly sensitive.
