What is it about 0s and 1s – black and white, that is so scary to us? We like shades of gray. Absolutes frighten us. People hate deciding things for themselves. As much as people might pretend like they want to be in control, they really want to have decisions taken for them. People don’t easily grow out of the child-like state of letting others decide things for them. Why? Because decisions go wrong – a lot. So it is easier to not decide – and thus not have any part of the pain that would follow a bad decision.
Gray is the world we want to live in. Not black. Not white.
