The Emergent Present

What is always there, but we are too distracted to see.

“You felt it your entire life, that there is something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is, but its there like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.
Do you know what I’m talking about?
The Matrix.
The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us, even now in this very room.
You can see I when you look out your window, or turn on the television.
You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes.
It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
What truth?
That you are a slave Neo.
Like every one else you were born into bondage.
Born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch.  A prison for your mind.

Morpheus – The Matrix

You are here to wake up.
