So, what’s going on? How is it going? Wut up? Really there is no need to ask. That is what fantasy free is for. Look at the world through the prism of fantasy. Then ask someone else, “what is going on?” There is no need in doing that. The person you ask is looking through the world through the prism of fantasy also.
Want to know what is going on? Take a fantasy free look and see for yourself. Nature provides a gift for discerning the meaning of all that is encountered in the present moment. That is provided the discernment is taking place in a mind that is free from fantasy.
Here is just one hint to getting for getting started. Nature provides one universal incentive. that is self interest. It is only fantasy to entertain the notion that anything other than self interest is guiding your elected representatives.
