Its a simple experiment involving a cat, a box, and a vial of poison. At one point, the cat will break the vial and release the poison at which time the cat will die. However, until you open the box, you will never know if the cat is alive or dead. Therefore, it is both alive and dead at the same time!
The same goes with action vs. inaction. You won’t know what exactly happened until you actually go for it.
I’m applying to KGI as my next step in education. I hope I get in.
