Truth is a little like Absolute Zero, which you may remember is O on the Kelvin scare, or -273.15C. Truth is also like the speed of light which  is approached but not achieved without the transformation into pure energy. It’s a long and winding road peopled with mythological creatures like the deadly Charybdis and Scylla, which threatened Odysseus, but which, in fact, are avatars of emotion. Misconceptions and preconceptions are enablers that facilitate distortions of reality. You might have engineered a whole vengeful narrative which will ultimately enable you to ship off, and that may be the point. In fact by turning the dial a little bit from the course on which you’re set, you may unleash whole new realms of unsung possibility. For instance, it’s fun and even exhilarating to create a comic strip of a rival’s life, in which their bothersome little traits are set in stone, but once the thrill of dismissal has past, you’re left drowning in a seemingly unfathomable well of anger and emptiness. How much easier to clear the obstacles in your path as you edge more closely to an accurate perception of so-called reality! Distortions produce adrenalin, but however much fun they are, these will not succeed in getting you to your destination in time or indeed at all.
