  • Great job Doug. The world is not what we are told it is. I don’t know if I told you about this guy, but Donald Hoffman but Dr Donald Hoffman has been talking about this for a while now. Despite some ridicule from his collogues, he has stuck to his position that the world we see is now the world as it is but a world that we can maneuver to increase our chances of living long enough to procreate. Here is a link to an article about him.

    • Thanks David. The Gnostics also believed that this is an artificial reality, or mimicry. I think the Matrix films symbolized a lot of Gnostic ideas.

  • I just listened to your diatribe again and wanted to share a few lines from a poem by WB Yeats that I think capture this moment in history.

    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.
