Somewhat similar to John Nash Game Theory. Whereby when everyone competes for the same goal it becomes unattainable? However it is a little different. It boldly states that your goals were unattainable from the very beginning because of personal defect. And indeed the Bible references this to, in the manner of ~"They will spend their entire lives attempting to be just like him." Or "We will live the life he lead for us." But you were unfairly competing against him weren't you! You were jeering at him as he took his cross to be crucified.
Also in the Bible we see a story of a son who was not imprinted by his own father, reason unstated. And he competed with St. Francis? Mocked his every move? Until it was him that fell over dead and not St. Francis. St. Francis was indeed made a Saint for that. So indeed the one is the Saint.
And what happened to the young man who wanted to become like St. Francis? His body shut down in Depression and he collapsed? What did he learn from it? He learned of his own inferiority through the indoctrination of unfair competition.
