The Historical and Personal Game of "What If"?πŸ‘ΎπŸŒπŸŒŽπŸŒπŸ“–πŸŽ¬

Freud would probably tell you that sometimes a cigar is just cigar ... but wasn't it cigars that did him in at the end?
Personal (inner) Guidance System?
I stumbled across Dan Snow's History podcast because of one of three books I stumbled across lately ... or should that be fluked upon?-)
'Kim' by Rudyard Kipling is one of the next books that I'm supposed to read in the book '1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die' at the pace I have been reading them basically in chronological order and I knew little about the author Rudyard Kipling, apart from him being the author of 'The Jungle Book' and writing the poem 'If-'.
So, if I hadn't have stumbled across Kipling's book and searched for a podcast episode featuring Kipling, would I have found and listened to Dan Snow's history podcast episode about Brian Klaas and his book 'FlukeChance, Chaos, and Why Everything We Do Matters'?

And listening to
Dan's more recent history podcast where he interviewed Brian Klaas the author of 'Fluke
: Chance, Chaos, and Why Everything We Do Matters' where he mentions the dinosaurs getting wiped out, while I was flicking through the star of the Jurassic Park movies Sam Neill's biography, I stumbled across the same time I found 'Kim', not to mention Miles Franklin's novel 'My Brilliant Career' I started thinking "what ifs"?
Early On He Decided He Really Wasn't a NIGEL, He Was a SAM and Changed His Name?
The Man in the High Castle: Book vs Series?πŸŽ₯πŸ“•πŸ―πŸ°
I have never seen the movie that was made from the book, which starred Sam Neill.
'My Brilliant Career' also stars Wendy Hughes, who was once married to Chris Haywood who plays Bill Bennet in the new movie 'The Way, My Way'.
And if I hadn't have seen the movie poster for Bill's movie 'The Way, My Way' at the cinema I went and watched 4 movies in a row, would have missed out on knowing about the Q& A screening of Bill's movie yesterday at the New Farm Cinemas?
Life and death are a journey of "what ifs" it seems?

Too much headroom in my photo Bill?-)

And "what if" I had never have read any of PKD's books?
I guess we can't always make the right choice in life by following our PiGS?-)
