I was driving one day to school when I thought I ran a stop sign. I suddenly became nervous, started to sweat and anxiously looked around to check for cops. It was early in the morning, the sun was barely rising, no one was out and there was no evident danger. I then realized, every day I take directions from all sorts of inanimate signs. I've been conditioned since birth to read and follow the directions. It may not always be evident, or necessary, but we all follow the signs.
