Imagine you’re a soldier at war. Fighting in an enemy city, being tasked with clearing buildings. You’re the first one to walk through the door. Behind it, there could be an empty room, a bunch of civilians, or enemy soldiers. The room could be booby-trapped.
Now, my question is this:
Does it matter how you open the door?
If you do it confidently or fearfully, if you analyze all the possible outcomes, if your hands shake, if you want to kick the door to announce death that you will not give up easily.
It would seem that the outcome is the same, right? After all, it all comes down to blind luck.
