improbable identity

There is another probable version of you that you could choose. This is the other you, the potential you.

You could continue choosing the most unlikely version of yourself until you move into the improbable: you choose your way out of reality. Yet, we tend to have elasticities that snap us back into a recognizable self.

It is only the courageous, or the crazy, who can continue beyond the probable to become something entirely other.
