“We must choose a standard to hold ourselves to.  Perhaps we’re influenced to pick some particular standard; perhaps we pick it at random.  Neither seems particularly ‘authentic,’ but we swerve around paradox here because it’s not clear that this matters.  It’s the commitment to the choice that makes behavior authentic.” — Brian Christian, The Most Human Human (emphasis in original)
