This got me thinking about the Law of Equivalent Exchange
In Full Metal Alchemist:

It States that:
"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something
in return... To obtain something of equal value must be lost."


I dont believe on this law because... For example even you worked hard
on an exam and still failed that is not an equivalent exchange right?
For those who are gifted and dont even have to work hard and still
pass that is not an equivalent exchange either..

So how about you? what do you think about this law?..

Well I do...As long as you put in enough effort,you will get what you want unlike in Full Metal Alchemist episode 1 and 2,you do not get what you want by sitting down there praying.

Well, I will go with both, yes and no.
There is too much variables to strictly consider either one.

In a way it's true, sort of like karma. A family is a perfect example: Parents fall in love that in turn turns to children, parents raise the child, child grows up, parents grow old, child takes care of the parents.

No.. You still cannot make an omelet with just breaking eggs...

You still have to add also the other ingredients

If you only break eggs it would only turn to fried egg... XD

I love the full metal alchemist concept.
Their equivalent change is taken from the chemical reaction concept.
such as,
K2O + 2HCI -> 2KCl + H2O
the amount of the result must equal to the original
