Everyone living in Florida these days knows about the “Cone of Uncertainty“. It is the cone-shaped, anxiety-producing, red-swath on the weather maps whenever a hurricane is headed our way, showing the “best guess” area in which the storm is most likely to hit. Sometimes, as was the case with the recent storm Hurricane Irma, the “Cone of Uncertainty” itself changes, as the storm gets closer and the weather forecast becomes more precise. In any case, all this talk about the “Cone of Uncertainty” got me thinking about the fluid realities of human life. Maybe we all live in the “Cone of Uncertainty” all of the time even though we often like to imagine that things are more predictable.
