Nowhere…

We always seem to think that everything is somewhere, but what if it’s not?  What if only certain people, driving down this road, get to where they planned on going.  The Bermuda Triangle and the Great Lakes spot, take people to other places, whether they want to go or not.  What if there are places like that all over the world.  What if they are just there, waiting for the right people.

Where do those disappeared people end up?  Why are some taken but not others?

Some people may think this road is beautiful.  It’s not to me.  No trees, just stripped and barren.  Cold, slick and boring. You would think that the road had to lead somewhere, but maybe it doesn’t, at least not all the time.  I think there’s a lot we don’t know.  A lot we take for granted.  Things people never talk about.

Hey, I’m just sayin’.

What if…

Deer, Dream, Animal, Fantasy, Mythology

What if we really are the Matrix…nothing more than dots and numbers, code and clever programing?  What if that’s ALL we are.  What if Keanu Reeves can’t save us?  We don’t seem to be able to save ourselves, so maybe we need young hackers to figure things out.  It couldn’t hurt, right?  The reason those kids are hunted by governments all over the world, is because they can tell us the truth about what’s going on, not because of national security.  They’ll expose the lies.  Can you even imagine it?

If we are part of the Matrix, maybe the kids could figure out a way to screw up the programs of the 1%, so everyone else could finally catch a break and live.
