The tale of the composition of "Four Quartets", in terms of mysticism, constitutes a fascinating bankruptcy in glossy literary heritage. T. S. Eliot drew his notion not just from the literature of orthodox Christian mysticism and from a number of Hindu and Buddhist assets, but in addition from the literature of the occult, and from numerous unforeseen and thus far unacknowledged assets resembling the "mystical" symbolism of Shakespeare's later performs and the visionary poetry of Rudyard Kipling.

Thus it is almost as likely as not that in a group of four people, two of them will share a star sign. If we consider birthdays, we obtain an even more surprising result. We need only 23 people in a group in order for there to be a 50% likelihood that two of those people will share a birthday. The reason for this low figure is that 23 people can actually be paired off for comparison in no less than 253 different ways. With 30 people, as may be found on the average rugby pitch, the likelihood is in fact 70% that two people will share a birthday.
In addition, people have a tendency to base their judgements on a small sample of information and to be unduly impressed by the occurrence of unremarkable coincidences. Finally, individuals have a very distorted notion of risk, often being terribly worried about safe activities but unconcerned about very unsafe ones, such as smoking. For all of these reasons the average person tends to make highly inaccurate estimations of probability, and in most cases this takes the form of a considerable underestimation of the probability of an event occurring by chance.
Subjective estimates of this type underlie much intuitive decision-making. Although subjective probability estimation may be the greyest area of probability, there do exist ways of making the estimates more reliable by modifying them in the light of the available data. The statistician Bayes called the subjective estimate the 'prior' odds, and showed how this could be modified to give the 'posterior' odds by reference to observed frequencies. e. , 1982). Whichever definition of probability we apply, one thing is clear - the events we are interested in can never be more frequent than the possible events, since they will only occur on some occasions and not on others.
