And, to further confuse the issure, I now have problems with how we could control chance unconsciously. Technically there is no such thing as chance. All you have to do to predict something is track the actions and effects of everything in the universe since Day 0, and have a working knowledge of everything, and you could predict exactly what will happen next. Physically, I mean. I believe there is true randomness in the human spirit, which is not coporeal. The mind however, is, and thus it's thoughts could be predicted with perfect acuract were you able to take away the spirit. But even with the spirit, you can predict the mind with acceptable acuracy. Chance is nothing but what we call the unknown because we do not know enough to predict the future with 100% accuracy. So the problem becomes, how would one control chance? The only way to do so would be to control the circumstances in some way. Now, with regular talent, it is mostly probably a simple attunement of mental process to whatever you're working with. Someone with a green thumb, for instance, has a mind that thinks (mostly subconsciously) in such a way so as to know what to do.
But what above the extremes, such as my just looking at things on a computer and fixing them, or your killing a machine simply by using it correctly? You might explain my ability to fix as a simple exertion of the will combined with extremely weak telekinesis. Our wills do have some power (though very limited and weak) over the physical realm. But of the O'tan effect? I know of no one, who even subconsciously, who wills things to break (well - usually. but they won't when you want them to), and thus I refuse to believe that it has anything to do with the mind or spirit, for both are inextricable to the conscious and subconscious.
So... it must be something in the genetics, which is also helped by the fact that these things seem to be hereditary. It cannot be mere lack of talent, because if you look at a graph, lack of talent would be zero. The O'tan (I am using this to label the real-life effect) effect would fall into the negative spectrum, and I don't think it's possible to have a negative talent. Or at least, we don't have a concept in our language for negative talent; simply lack of talent, which usually causes enough disaster as it is.
I must, at this point, fall back upon the bio-energy pattern release. Humans already release a lot of energy; why not a certain pattern of a specific type of energy determined by the genetic structure? But then how would this energy pattern alter things to the worse? The order-to-chaos idea is attractive, but how would it do so? What determines what is chaos? If it is the disruption of the current order, couldn't the disruption all to often simply cause a new order, one that is sometimes better than the original? I'm thinking that this energy pattern would simply discrupt order in a certain way. That would help explain why there are people who can make things work better by simply being around. They release energy in a pattern that disrupts the current order into a new, yet better, order. This would also make it possible for certain types of "talent" and "negative talent". A pattern that disrupts one thing for the worse could disrupt another for the better.
Note that this would only be applied to how well an object performs its duty. It would not apply to people's actions, or the weather, or if things just always seem to turn out bad. "Luck" as we call it, has nothing to do with this theory. Also note that when I say "Energy" I am speaking with the scientific connatations of the word. An unknown (or known) form of energy that is released from the body in a certain pattern or wave. It has nothing to do with anything of the spirit. It cannot.
So, in conclusion I would venture to say that God has not cursed such people; he has simply given them another path to excel at- without effort, I might add.
If these theories help, so be it. If not, discard them. I don't even have the brainpower right now to run them through a logic check. Just following my train of thought. Godspeed, all. G'night.
