di- "two" + lemma "premise, anything received or taken," from root of
lambanein "to take" a situation in
which a difficult choice has to be
made between two different things
we could do.
The asterisk is used globally as a symbol to call out footnotes and further explanations. Surprisingly (and not etymologically speaking),
it contains the word “risk”. Every choice hides
a risk and every dilemma could be captured as
an asterisk that refers to two situations
between which a choice should be made. All our dilemmas and decisions shape our identity, and vice versa, our identity determines our choices. What are the criteria for making a decision? How and to what extent does it affect us? Is the final choice always as difficult as it seems? Or maybe not?
