You either chose to cross the road to get to the other side or you didn't,
if you didn't then you made your decision for no reason, a.k.a. it was
random. Something happening for no reason is after all what "random" means.

And you want to stay alive because of your genes or because of your
upbringing or for no reason whatsoever.
