Basically, this

While letting my mind wander about, a thought suddenly invaded my mental space, an inception if you will. Don't we always have a choice? Or don't we?

"I'm left with no other choices."

Is that really the case? Although this quote usually makes the stage whenever people have come to a road of no tomorrow. You had no choice now, or did you never had the choice once? If by anything that makes human beings unique, it's the power of decision.

"As you adequately put, the problem is choice. But we already know what you are going to do, don't we? Already I can see the chain reaction: the chemical precursors that signal the onset of an emotion, designed specifically to overwhelm logic and reason. An emotion that is already blinding you to the simple and obvious truth: she is going to die and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Hope. It is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and your greatest weakness."

- The Architect, The Matrix Reloaded

We know what's happening now, or rather; we perceive and assume. We craft out own endings, and through it all, by choice. Even if it's an eventual mistake, that moment in time to choose between one out of 1000 hallways, that was our choice. The human thought process is so fast, the clarity of it all just un-nerves the unbelievable and leading to denial if we followed the hallway to nothingness.

Not the best of examples, but say you're on a bus and it swerves, bringing about another commuter into you. And you realize they're going to land on you, and with an accidental yet on-the-mark kiss. If, you're limited by the power to change this commuter into another person, another build...

Between an old lady, and a vivacious lady with perfect numbers.

An sweaty, smelly uncle and a strapping muscular hunk.

And to compel you further to choose, you may be the same gender as the one falling onto you. Now, choose?

You can't?

You don't want either?

You have a choice, you just don't want to choose.

And I digress, with this, I realized, we all have the innate ability to think and decide for ourselves, no matter how out of time we're running out. Better late than never, as they always say, we don't always get what we want, and hence, some people rather not decide and "choose" to run it away from it all. That is such a sheer irony.

Rather than having a 0% of something beyond your choice, I rather change my odds with a minimal increase of 1%. Because I can, and I choose to. I will always have a choice, and I choose not to be upset over it anymore.
