The Rule of Two

A and B are discussing everything from fast food and capitalism to conspiracy theories. They are on a shift wondering why it’s taking so much longer than usual. We don’t know what they are looking out for. They have never seen anything. They don’t know what’s out there, if there is anything. They don’t even know each other’s names.

They are also discussing the rule of two. Why ‘greatness comes in pairing’. Even in a non-relationship, you keep each other focused. Stop each other from falling asleep. And if there are only two of you it is less likely that a conspiracy theory can spread, like the moon landing being a hoax.

It’s a bit ‘Waiting for Godot’. Enough said. But if you are a Patron (which I highly recommend) the Q & A explains it far better than me.
