The Glass Ceiling
Chapter 15: Why Does It Matter?

Tomorrow I'll get stuck under chemtrail skies in the Starbucks drivethrough en route to my shit job, How does it matter if the Earth is flat, round, or donut?

Ah, at last, the important question!

Of course I can say it doesn't matter at all, and you have the perfect excuse to take the blue pill, return to your reverie, and defend against any incursion of truth.

But it does matter. It is the greatest truth of all!

For all of our lives our thirst for understanding has been met with fairy tales and boldfaced lies.

Most people with a scintilla of awareness know the political landscape is distorted in the mainstream media. We want to believe that science is somehow immune from manipulation, that certain truths are unassailable and that somewhere deep in the collective mind exist certainties to which we can cling.

Science and academia present the seductive myth of the smart person you can ask for directions, the designated talking head with that subtle pedagogical odor of superiority who can assure us that it all adds up and science has our best interests at heart. Why Johnny, without science we wouldn't have GMOs and the world would starve. We wouldn't know that we have to spray chemtrails to save the planet, and we wouldn't be able to vaccinate children against normal development. If it weren't for science, who could assure you that cell phones are safe and you need 5 G?

It is unfashionable to notice that the entire media empire is naked, and taken as a sure sign that we are unfit for our jobs.

The flat Earth is a watershed, a great divide between what is true and what is not. This is the beginning of the beginning of discernment. You're listening to the news. They spew their constant string of emetic factoids. But a bell goes off. Inside you something says "That's not true!".

In that instant, the spell is broken. The hypnotic rhythm of the announcer's soundscape voice is exposed. And now, for CBC News, I'm Les Germaine. Sput, pop, what did he just say? This is a time-release red pill. The world will never look the same.

There's more too. Peculiar notions that can only exist in empty space have shaped our understanding of matter, electricity, and energy. We have been equipped with curved eyeglasses and bent rulers to measure and understand our world. Is it any wonder that American cars don't get 300 kilometers to the gallon?

Imagine what we might know if we abandon the shackles of certainty. Imagine what we might discover. Could we recreate the work of Tesla? He didn't have a supercomputer, just the willingness to explore, speculate, and experiment.

And if God created man in his own image, we too are creators. Can you imagine how much more effective our creations will become if we lose our confusion about the world around us?
