“Truth is always stranger than fiction. We craft fiction to match our sense of how things ought to be, but truth cannot be crafted. Truth is, and truth has a way of astonishing us to our knees. Reminding us, that the universe does not exist to fulfill our expectations. Because we are imperfect beings who are self-blinded to the truth of the world’s stunning complexity, we shave reality to paper thin theories and ideologies that we can easily grasp – and we call them truths. But the truth of a sea in all it’s immensity cannot be embodied in one tidewashed pebble.”


This world is limited,
full of stupid illusions,
Do we have a choice,
to participate in this stupid game?

Jesus was only a man,
built up to something great,
He's just as holy,
as you or me.

Are we so advanced,
or is this a lie?
Are diamonds worth everything,
or are they worth nothing?

Is life what we make it,
or is it decided by others?
Do we have free will,
or are we prisoners of ourselves?

This world is ours,
We must wake up from this nightmare,
Before we lose ourselves,
And what is truly priceless.

Fairy tales are true, not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten.
