One of my faves.

"That's how it is with people. Nobody cares how it works as long as it works."

This is a line from The Matrix Reloaded. To me it illustrates well one of the major problems with people and society in general. They get most their knowledge from the mainstream media and TV. Most people don't like learning about the way things work. They don't have curious minds. We are at a point in human history where technology is entering the 'Technoshamanism' era. (The word means: science and tech so advanced that it's indistinguishable from magik). This same apathetic attitude reflects in other aspects of their lives.

Here is a line of my own: "Shallow is the word when it comes to most human minds"

To finish here is another song from the mind of the great Neil Peart, the drummer of Rush. The video is below the lyrics. (Don't forget to visit the related topics at the bottom of this post)

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In between the bright lights
And the far unlit unknown

Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass production zone
Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone

In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help disprove the unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe the restless dreams of youth

Drawn like moths we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action
Lit up like a firefly
Just to feel the living night

Well some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights...
