I am a man who is being and doing whatever to continue my fractal of history which has many taproots. My perceptions and actions are what will continue this long line of fractal paths and are not an illusion due to conflicts and connections.  I am here with specific guidelines from taproots before to survive this trial to my final destination. I didn't take a defined path, I just went forward like yourself. I create a fractal line, which is one of many, to develop further this elegant fractal. To answer your question, "If you could know only one thing, what would it be?", I would say to be a taproot for more fractal lines to sprout from.

Free will is not an illusion but a practise. This practise is a real-time choice of two outcomes with neither benefit or deficit but the consequence will ultimately be predetermined.
