Title: Law of Fives on Binary
Post by: Q. G. Pennyworth 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:

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?

This follows the 5 cycles/seasons, as presented in the Appendices of the Illuminatus! Trilogy: Chaos, Discord, Confusion, Bureaucracy, Aftermath.
Also known as Thesis(this), Anti-Thesis(that), Synthesis(both), Parentheses(neither), Paralysis(loosening or shutting down of the old order to allow something new or in-between to emerge).
