You are walking, blindfolded, through a forest.  


Three voices approach you.  


The first voice says:

“A bear is coming to kill you.  You must defend yourself."

The second voice says:

"I can give you eyes to see.  But you must follow me."

The final voice says:

"You should take that ridiculous thing off; no use making yourself blind."


One of the voices is a stranger.  Another is a predator. Another is a friend.  


Which voice will you listen to?
