Making it up as we go along

I remember a friend saying that they had given up on LOST at season 5 because they believed “they were just making it up as they go along”… 

Now, I know they meant that the writers were maybe trying to stretch it out for ratings and didn’t quite know which ending to use yet, but the comment revealed an assumption that I think we all make a lot:

That ‘someone’ knows what’s happening all the time. That there is a single correct and right way for everything to happen. That all things are organised and panned with almost fate like assurance. 

After attending UX London recently this thought resonates again. More on that in some post talk posts soon. 

PS. Posts that I’m only imagining OK, they’re not fully thought out yet… nor even are the thoughts fully formed… I’m just making this up as I go along.
