If anyone tells you that you only got two alternatives to choose from, think twice.
They’re right, from their point of view, but what’s missing in the picture is that there are countless alternatives, as long as you can imagine them.
The two options proposed to you are just the one they can see, but they don’t count the extra ones you can see, or the ones a friend can see.
You can stretch your mind and find alternatives as sound and as crazy as possible. Things you didn’t consider, things you excluded.
It’s not that your world will only have two choices. It’s just that those choices are the one the people are aware of.
