      Consider that water running downhill can, but does not inevitably
      reach the bottom of the ocean, no, not without an accommodating
      movement of the water already there. Consider that existentialism is
      about neither fact nor truth, yet the core of its proposition revolves
      around value judgements, human choices in everyday human existence,
      inescapable choices. Consider that one cannot differentiate subjective
      from objective in this proposition for it is a proposition of a whole
      human beings position in/of existence. Consider that choices are
      inevitably presented of an original choice, a first choice utterly
      desolate of any motivation, a random election toward a specific
      edifice of choices that become a life, a life the specific effort, a
      life the individual work, a life forced of its own first meaningless
      choice to choose of its choices. Consider that the generative dynamism
      of existentialism is to accidentally choose to have to choose, to
      self-activate out of self-inflicted freedom until one cannot, until
      one's choices are gone, until one is dead. Existence is accidentally
      self-inflicted freedom. Consider that with every choice made one's
      freedom to choose diminishes by one choice. Consider that a human
      empirical paradigm, an immersion in the specific limitation of human
      existence, the accident of being human, cannot do otherwise than
      produce an edifice of assessment. Consider that the capacity to assess
      is inextricably bound to whatever is assessed; woven of, through, and
      around, the fabric of its absurd but inevitable nascence. Consider
      that what constituted the capacity to assess could not have been
      assessed and then implemented prior to its own existence. Consider
      that it is the absurd choice of limitation that has produced the
      capacity to assess. Consider that only what is limited can be
      assessed. Consider that assessment itself is limited to its paradigm.
      Consider that the capacity to assess is self-induced to assess itself.
      Consider this an inevitable accidental imperative of the capacity to
      assess. Consider that the individual man, the capacity to assess, the
      human species, and the imperative to assess the capacity to assess,
      are simultaneously nascent in the specific limitation that is the
      individual human being. Consider that a human being is not wholly a
      human being alone. Consider that the absurd choice of having to
      choose is species. Consider again that with every choice made one's
      freedom to choose is diminished by one choice. Consider that the
      individual must make choices that increase another individual's
      choices. Consider that freedom evolves in the species of our
      individual capacity to enable it in another. Consider our hope for
      freedom is in each other. Consider alone, we can only lose it.
      Consider again our choice for species is absurd, yet it is the only
      possible choice for freedom. Consider that freedom is absurd for the
      individual because it cannot be self-provided. Consider that the
      limitation that is the human species is freedom. Consider that the
      individual human can only be facilitated with freedom by another
      individual human. Consider existentially.
