Surrender is a powerful word. It runs directly counter to everything Dave was taught. Dave was taught to fight for dominance — to struggle to be the best. And after years of doing just that, Dave finally arrived at the mountaintop, the pinnacle, the hallowed place where eagles crap. But Dave was still unhappy, because no matter how hard he fought, winning was an illusion — a mirage. But then, Dave thought, what would happen if I just gave up? This universe isn’t meant to be dominated. It’s an incomprehensible vastness which created us and to which we’ll all return. So Dave surrendered and discovered a happiness he never dreamed of. A sea of bliss in which he willingly drowned. But then, he met this guy who was even happier and more blissful. You can guess the rest.
