"...it seems to me that the individual today stands at a crossroad, faced with the choice of whether to pursue the new technology and the endless multiplication of material goods, or to seek out a way that will lead to spiritual responsibility, a way that ultimately might mean not only his personal salvation but also the saving of society at large; in other words, turn to God."
- Andrei Tarkovsky, 1986

Quite ironical that what the individual sees in front of him is not really a crossroad, it is just a multi way mirage meant to confuse the individual with tempting alternatives. Whatever choice the mind wants to make, in reality there is only a single path of materialistic glory that the individual (is forced to) takes, the alternatives are just thorns which prick the individual on grounds of emptiness and guilt. The thorns are meant only to constantly haunt the individual, posing questions like "if only?" and "what if?" I dont see any other destination that the other paths lead to.

Everyone wants to do good.
Everyone wants to be good.
Few are good.

Inevitability is a stronger crusader than dreams.
