How do you know the tech you reverse engineer was not destined to be reverse engineered by you in the first place? I can't parse TT thinking because so many what-ifs and "suppose I do this or that's" arise.

billions of paths lie ahead.. but only one is behind us.
I am choosing the path that my present self will take...
