This Old Matrix

What a sophisticated mechanism we make for ourselves, that simultaneously offers us answers where there are none, and compels us to stop questioning the absolute nature of our social construct. To recognize the complexity of the world is to realize there is no appropriate course of action, but rather, there is just action, and the course will only be visible in hindsight. Our ability to predict the consequences of our actions has proven miserable to this point. The more assurance we have in our predictive mechanisms, the less prone we become to revisit and reframe our paradigms. It is faith in the system that causes us to stagnate.
