We are living a lie, because it serves us, it flatters us. It calls us to lie more and more, to use our power and knowledge to construct more lies, to love the lies, and to hate the truth.
We do. We love the darkness, and cannot bear the light. And so we love the lie. We love to think of ourselves as exceptional. But when our failings are exposed, we hide them with displays of power to silence the truth. We would be as gods, but are tragically just children of wrath.
And with the darkness comes madness, and the madness serves none but itself.
