rules only exist for us, to prevent their transgression, to control
actions, to control societies, to shape otherwise chaotic masses.

it may work in certain tracks of repeated behaviour, but it doesn't 'break'
its own rules, it cannot.

it has only been an experiment that has found enough coincidences to
perpetuate itself.
