Aarseth's model of an ergodic text, one with multicursality and either-or choices, stresses the singularity and unrepeatability of decision, of the one-time opportunity of navigating a particular path; in such texts, he says, one is "constantly reminded of inaccessible strategies and paths not taken, voices not heard .
