One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Tasks of Man

In a throwaway comment, Gavin mused upon four prerequisites for becoming a man: one must experience triumph in physical combat, suffer loss in physical combat -- and still more brutal -- having one's heart broken, and breaking another's heart.

These events provide perspective about how wide a situation can develop and the levels of undetectable difference and their unpredictability despite believed attributes of the actors and fervent hope.

Outcomes only superficially repeat in form. Their essence varies like a churning kaleidoscope. We don't learn much from victory or loss usually, except severity -- poison does sting. You can volitionally choose the result to ethically pay the cost.

You are unlikely to get anywhere worthwhile through randomness or accepting whatever target is around you for easy pillaging, but that is what most do anyway.
