Law of Fives on Binary
« on: September 20, 2015, 01:24:04 am »
So, I had one of those early morning fuzzy brain thoughts today that went along the lines of:

All binary choices obey the law of fives. When you are forced to choose between A or B, you may choose A, you may choose B, you may choose both, you may choose neither, or you may choose something in between.

I feel like this may have been written before and better. Does it sound familiar to anyone?

Nope not I. First time I ever thought about it that way. It's not every day I see a new fnord-form pop up. Pretty sure it's permanent.   :eek:

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

I thought this was going to be like "Law of 0101's"

This does sound somewhat familiar, but I'm not sure where.  Maybe in Or Kill Me?
