When enough members of a species get to the point where they know they're alive, and they know they can think--when they start to understand the world around them, and they realize they can do something about it one way or another--then they're offered the Choice. As a species, they can elect to slow down the Great Death, or at least try to slow it down. Or else they can just give in and decide to do nothing about it. They can even go over to Its side, the Lone Power's side, and help make the worlds die faster..."

"I've never been real clear about that myself," Kit said. How can they do it? How can someone be angry enough, or crazy enough, to say, "Sure, if things are going to hell anyway, let's have them go there faster"?
