Beyond Binary

“The structures we create to order our lives are binary: either/or, yes/no, true/false, right/wrong. I used to write computer code for a living, so I have a pretty good grasp on the concept of binary decision-making. The trouble is, the world, and the minds and bodies we use to navigate it, are not so simple. The important questions nearly always defy such absolute, categorical answers. I’m not just talking about rest rooms… but yes, I am talking about that, too.”
