Say What?

Here's a little guessing game, or scavenger hunt, to help you while away a couple of weekend hours. What's the missing phrase in this quotation (first ellipsis):

The alternative to ... is reading nothing, having no interest in the amazing and the unpredictable. in the brilliance and stupidity of others ...

(Tip of the hat to Zeppo Bakunin for suggesting this post).

Update (Monday, 13 February) - here's the answer:

The alternative to the sharemarket is reading nothing, having no interest in the amazing and the unpredictable, in the brilliance and stupidity of others and never realising the opportunity to make money through the labour of others.

It is about taking an interest in the world. It's about opportunity and risk and taking both by the horns.
