We all know intuitively that we are absolutely determined in what we do, but knowing this doesnt mean we know what we "should" do before we do it, therefore we are thrust against the limit of our knowledge with respect to the intuition of those determinations which impose upon us in any given moment of thought, feeling or action, i.e. we gain the freedom of choice, which is a kind of self-apotheosis at the subjective level, a process of progressive understanding as peeling back layer upon layer of our ignorances... the necessity of making a "choice".


“Be clever, Ariadne! ...
You have little ears; you have my ears:
Put a clever word in them! —
Must one not first hate oneself, in order to love oneself? ...
I am your labyrinth ...”.  -N

“A man is not great if he is not small, and he is not small if he is not great. Concepts flirt with the loss of their significance in the oscillation between ambiguous states, and this is in part the function and purpose of concepts.” -Primer on Meaning
