On Vision

Only in television commercials did Superman ever walk again.

In reality he wiggled his toes, breathed a few hours without a machine, and died.

All of us are prone to embracing fantasy, until fantasy itself becomes our reality.

“This is where I want to be, this is so much better.”

Soon the world of my own construction is the world God once pronounced good and I myself am the divine.

It is ironic that in such a situation the visionaries (the seers and prophets) are said to be blind. Dismissed as those who chase utopian pipe-dreams, those who do not take into consideration the true nature of reality.

Yet the prophets are those who have not only escaped fantasy but discovered a greater reality. They realise a truer way of being than those who have spent their lives fleeing that which is instead of facing it and discovering that which will be.
