ALL MAPPED OUT
Is it possible that your whole life is waiting to be deciphered by you- that it's all neatly lain down, waiting to be read by you, on the palm of your hand?
Of all fortune telling means, this seems the most haunting, and so accurate. It's actually quite scientific, the study of criss-crossing lines. There are specific rules to go by that can be understood by all, not mystical gibberish that merely confounds.
And then, it is not rigid in stating facts, it accepts the case varies person to person, and that 'fate' can be changed.
The scientific 'explanation' is the various chemical components that make a person what he is, and that simultaneously affect the make- up of the hand (consider the fact that people with longer ring fingers are supposed to be inclined mathematically, while those with longer index fingers are better at languages, all because the same chemicals affect the length and the part of the brain that dictates intelligence. Incidentally, I have both of equal length, and am equally suited to both.)
But, though this explanation is interesting, isn't the beauty of the whole thing mesmerizing, doesn't it speak of a wonderfully synchronized orchestration guided by an all- knowing force?
In the end, the thing to be remembered is that your life is in your hands- take that as you wish.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but the marks on your hands are made in the womb by the way in which your tiny hands are clenched for 9 months. And of course they are than set for life. Just as in the same way, the position of Alpha Centauri in relation to Betelgeuse, is not going to dictate whether I will be mown down by an egg lorry today. Don't you think that this is just another way in which confused people can blame all that happens to them on something else, a 'higher power'? Pretty similar to religion, wouldn't you say? Is this a little too controversial for you?
    Oh, the guy was arrested for being drunk or possessing alcohol, both of which are illegal in Kuwait.

    Hey, you have a temper eh? Ok Ok calm down, just wanted to see if you would rise to the bait. Of course predictions come true, in the world of infinite possibility, if you put 15 monkeys in a room with typewriters, sooner or later they would write a Midsummer Night's Dream. So it's hardly surprising that if I say that some Aquarian was going to be mown down by that egg lorry, someone somewhere would be and everybody around them would say it was a miracle and declare me a God, or something.
    In the matter of those hands, yes of course they change as we grow older, but not from the basic design which was developed in the womb.
    And, I know it will come as a great surprise to you, but I find palmistry fascinating. And what star sign are you? Gotta go.........

    see, me isn't knowledgable enough to go into the sciences of palmstry. but th thougt, of it, s revolting. as long as one wud like to rbish itcomplty( an lts face it, the dudeswho sit on footoaths trying to read ur hands bullshit.definitely.please.) but then, for it to have such a folwing and so much of rsearch work behind it, a teeny sense of autyhenticity is hard to ignore. i can wonder. and sunhow, it seems more inviting than actually thinking abt it. who wants o know ones future anyways!...
