When I was a kid, I used to have this neighbor kid I would play with. Every time we would play something, like say cowboys, when I shot him, he would tell me I missed. Then I would get closer and shoot him again, and he would tell me that he had an invisible force field. This would go on and on. He always won the games we played.
I don't know why I thought of him just now...
Well that certainly explains a lot - maybe if you took a lesson out of Kirk's performance in the Kobayashi Maru simulation you may have learned to think out of the box to overcome the no win scenario; as well open the door for some insight into other things that may not agree with your initial view and understanding as you progress through life.
