"More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly."

Woody Allen


Prologue: There are some lines and some roads that you just don't cross. You don't cross them because they're either too blurry or too rocky to be crossed. You don't cross them for fear of retribution, or for fear of what's lying ahead.

And then there are the ones you're tempted to cross, to walk all over, and to cross them so fast that you can barely see where they had begun in the first place. Whether it's because of the powerful feeling of knowing that you're capable of doing it, or because you want to know what it feels like when you eventually cross them.

Even if there's too much at stake. Even if you're about to risk losing the most important thing in your life. Because you know that if you don't do it, you'll always wonder.

So you do it anyway, you stomp all over the line, because at that moment you feel like the world is yours to take. Like you are truly, completely and painfully alive.

And it feels fucking great.
