Reality is the place humans create for living our lives. Modeled, as it is, on incorrect perceptions of nature, it isn't a very hospitable place—it isn't very conducive to living for most people. Some of the most notable attributes of the world created by humans are: Corruption. Exploitation. Greed. Oppression. All kinds of -isms each of which positions itself as the right way to truth and everyone else is damned. Deception. Fraud. Scams and schemes. Even monkeyshines and hankey-panky. Backroom deals. People are always looking for something free for the taking, some advantage to be leveraged for personal gain. Humanity has a massive accounting problem. We have a tendency to ignore costs and not pay them. Cheating is okay as long as you don't get caught or can afford to buy some justice if you do

Humanity is in debt to the earth and future generations of our species—every species. We're in debt to life itself and continue to go deeper into debt like addicts with nothing else to do but take the next hit because nothing else makes any sense to us. But, while it isn't a what you would call a pretty picture, there are moments of joy and instances of beauty that can dazzle your imagination and make you want to breathe in the miracle of life here on our little rock circling a random red-dwarf somewhere in the vastness of all that is. Welcome the paradoxes and ironies that are packaged up in what we call human reality. It's the world we live in. Here's how the world works...
