You are bound to be someone’s guinea pig at one point in time. May it be in a legitimate science experiment, or in a simple truth or dare game involving you in one or many consequences.
Everything is a test. We prove ourselves to other people, more importantly we prove ourselves to our own selves. We oftentimes push ourselves to the limit to know up to which extent we can perform well, or to how much more we can bear the undesirable. This is what gives life its excitement; the battle between us and the unknown. And i personally believe that in this universal macro-experiment, we can always emerge victorious, for at the end of the day, we are the ones deciding up to when we can hold on to something, and we can always get away from an act before it goes wrong. It’s just that sometimes, we let our pride take over or logical thinking, and we still push through with our plans, even though it is evident that we are heading to a dead end, or worse, to our demise. And its already too late to abort the experiment.
