The Rat Race
What is the path out of the rat race?
As the saying goes, "Even if you win the rat race, you're still a rat."
There's a scene in Ready Player One where Parzival goes backwards in a race in order to win.
This is the classic metaphor "a road less traveled."
There's a difference between Parzipal and Frost. Parzipal went a different way to finish the same race. Frost took the road less traveled and it "made all the difference."
The difference is the Frost followed the road to wherever it went. He opened himself to possibilities and surrendered to what happened. He had faith that if you apply your skills to what you're interested in, the universe will reward you.
