We are programmed in society to believe in duality, that the solutions to problems, the rightness, the truth, must lie within either an A or a B. Two choices, that’s it. They are usually extreme opposites, such as in gender, politics, race, etc. And they are too often pitted against each other.
Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. And yet we keep hoping to find the answers within the same two A and B extremes.
Let your mind go free. How about a C? Or better yet, a C, D, E, etc – brand new ideas and perspectives outside of A and B. Or at the very least, a new middle ground, a place of cooperation between A and B.
Albert Einstein also said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

“You asked me how to get out of the finite dimensions when I feel like it. I certainly don’t use logic when I do it. Logic’s the first thing you have to get rid of.” ~ J.D. Salinger
