Depends on what you define as 'progress'. You can't progress 'forward'
to anywhere unless you CHOOSE, until you MAKE A DECISION about what
direction you think 'progress' and 'forward' lies. In doing so, you
choose a side, and until you do, you are progressing forward to nowhere,
you are just marking time in place, standing for nothing.
