How strange human nature is: confronted with a ladder, man feels compelled to climb to the very top. Itís cold and drafty up there- bad for the health- and a fall can be fatal. The rungs are slippery. Itís a funny thing: youíre aware of the dangers, and youíre practically ready to drop from exhaustion, yet you keep .ghting your way up. Regardless of the situation, you keep climbing; contrary to advice, you keep climbing; despite the resistance of your enemies, you keep climbing; against your better instincts, your common sense, your premonitions, you climb, climb, climb. If you donít keep climbing, you fall to the bottom. Thatís for sure. But if you do keep climbing, you fall anyway. - Arkady Strugatsky and Boris Strugatsky, Prisoners of Power (1969),
