Did this mean that Artyom not only hadn't the right, but couldn't deviate from his path? That was his fate? The fate in which he did not believe? And in which he did not believe because he didn't know to interpret what had happened to him, didn't know how to read the signs posted along his road, and continued to naively believe that the road that led to far horizons - and which had been constructed just for him - was a jumbled tangle of abandoned pathways that led in different directions?
