We have been living in fictional times of denial. Nothing about this way of life holds up to any serious thought or questioning because our present course is unsustainable. To cope with our day-to-day lives, we naturally cling to plastic, meaningless forms of entertainment and shallow thinking. Anything that deviates from the current "normal" is shut out because it fails to prop-up our belief in the fictional world around us.
But our social structures, our economic systems, and our entire way of life has already begun to change in a disruptive way. In the coming years, what we now think of as normal will come to be recognized as fictional. Will we watch our lives slip away by clinging to the past, or will we embrace the future?
