a search for meaning proceeds momentum. what is the incentive for your pursuits - Pleasure, Power, Purpose? Enlightenment, Engagement, Expression? Activation, Adventure, Attainment? whatever your concern, to engage potential and proclaim a space within vastness is our "IT", our "WHY". many times, this is unbeknownst to ourselves, cloaked in the "yes" and "no" that seems natural for something...else, only making sense as we look backward in deep reflection, archive reclamation, story-sharing, and witnessing time, over and over, again and again. other times, it is a conscious pursuit, "I need," "I want," and "I must," a deterministic quality that cannot be turned off until - it does. Every nerve buzzing, never-ending, keep on going, stand up, let go, move on. the paper trials and impressions we leave behind, the versions of ourselves we are more of now than we could have ever been then. Listening to that call, itching that nerve, BURST. So what happens when you are changed from your choices but before there is enough evidence for your trial?

One of one, all three.
