Binary Thinking: the Ons and Offs of Chosenness

Religions and political parties act as if there were only one right answer—theirs. You can see that this approach is binary, made of 1s and 0s, dividing the world into two camps: on and off, right or wrong, good or evil, us or them, you or me, female or male. Perhaps we need a Quantum Leap in our thinking. Music: Sara Kirton. violin
