Random is a catch-all for that which we don’t understand. If you fail due to randomness, you fail due to your imperfection. It is not the world’s fault; it’s yours. Granted, success is always success in spite of blindness, because we never fully understand the world. But the best we can do is try despite our unknowing. The best we can do is risk the punishment of the world for our pursuit of what we see as right and true. If it doesn’t kill us, we continue. And if it kills us, that sacrifice is worthy of honour. It is better to live than to fall, but a fallen soldier is better than a coward.
