He was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad. —Raphael Sabatini, Scaramouche. Indeed the world is mad, a giant form of hanky-panky that keeps the masses mesmerized while keeping them baffled at the same time. Why most people have no clue as to what is really happening and there are those out there that want to keep it that way for their own personal gain of course. Think of all the illusion that is propped up out there and the masses fall for it hook, line, and sinker. Until mankind shakes itself loose of this powerful illusion, its denizens will continue to chase the proverbial carrot on the stick; always just out of reach of the desperate hands that seek it. Those who are one with the Dao seek to be one with the universe instead.
