Recently I had a long chat with an ex-SAS military guy who had been on all kinds of crazy missions, saving the world here and there. A phrase he kept repeating when he was talking about the world of the military, politics and espionage was “Nothing is what it seems.”
This is just the kind of thing that rings alarm bells for a paranoid android like myself… after all, those who know me know that I’ll argue forever at parties that none of us can prove or disprove that we are living in a Matrix; or that we are merely brains in a vat; or that anyone at all exists other than myself (however, lately I’m spending a lot of time trying to figure out why my invitations to parties repeatedly get lost in the mail).
Anyway… the other day whilst wandering through Haig Park I noticed that there are all these neat little stenciled graffiti’s on the pathway citing “The System Keeps Us Blind”. I like it. It makes me wonder why someone would go to all that effort to sew these little seeds of intrigue.
Whoever you are, you have sparked my interest… I want to know more!
UPDATE: By a staggering coincidence I actually got to meet and know our aforementioned stencil artist a couple of years later. How slew is the universe?
