To what extent can we step out of our “matrix” and see all contexts? Who controls our world, and how? And why don’t we run it ourselves? Who controls and manipulates us, and to what extent is it us and to what extent is it society, family, friends, and our surroundings? How prepared are we – genetically, through our upbringing, through culture or education, how much of this can we ignore and what remains? A pure crystal, a peeled onion, a sock with holes, or the pure truth? How much do we really want to see, and how much do we overlook? Is it a mystery or esoterism if we feel “guided”, or have we just not accepted responsibility for our own lives? Why are we so controlled by alibism? And if not, is it activism? Why, if we know everything, don’t we improve the world to be at least an acceptable image? What is higher than us, who influences us, and are we capable of noticing in time? What do we relate to and what wins inside us? Can we function like a ring of information and influences that affects dozens of others, who all affect hundreds of other individuals? And why, if this is how it works, doesn’t anything radically change?
