Casting is deception.

It’s not the real thing.

We might cast a model or cast a line or cast a prediction.

We can even cast a person as someone else and — as convincing as they may be — they are not that person.

And we can’t count the number of fish we’ll catch by the number of times we cast our line.

We can’t make a cast of one thing and expect it to be exactly the same the next time or the time after that.

Just ask Tesla.
