I have just been reading the War of the worlds for the first time, and while i noticed shocking similarity between it and the matrix, one thing in particular stuck in my head:
"There's hundreds of things I saw with my eyes that I've only begun to see clearly these last few days. There's lots will take things as they are--fat and stupid; and lots will be worried by a sort of feeling that it's all wrong, and that they ought to be doing something. Now whenever things are so that a lot of people feel they ought to be doing something, the weak, and those who go weak with a lot of complicated thinking, always make for a sort of do-nothing religion, very pious and superior, and submit to persecution and the will of the Lord. Very likely you've seen the same thing. It's energy in a gale of funk, and turned clean inside out. These cages will be full of psalms and hymns and piety. And those of a less simple sort will work in a bit of--what is it?--eroticism."
Action for me has to be done, it's the will of the universe, so it's the direction that I seek. When choosing a course of action I am err'ing because I don't know which is best.
