Does shit ever just happen?

Shit happens, I heard a young woman say to her friend

I agreed, as I imagine you would too


But on some level, shit doesn’t just happen

For every force, there is a reaction force that is equal in size, but opposite in direction

A statement that at least sounds like something we should all know by heart by now


It is the third law of motion

It is karma in Buddhism

It is where you end up in the after life


It is your soul

It is your brain

It is your actions


But, what if not every cause has an effect?

What if no cause has any effect whatsoever?

What if things just happen?


Would that deny science?

Would it go against fate?

Would it moot karma?
