Our modern society is full of contradictions. Somehow, we do not seem to pay attention to the nature of these contradictions and keep repeating the lies to ourselves and others. Most contradictions arise from humans not able to meet reality as it is and trying to escape from it.

- Countries preparing for war while the people of the country are living a divided, meaningless existence based on self interest - in every aspect of their lives.

- Doing a routine, mind numbing job which helps in the production and selling of something which is based on gratification while also being a consumer of things which will gratify because the mind and body has become numb. And eventually, failing in physical and mental health and vitality and requiring money earned from the job to try to heal.

- Thinking politicians, movements, external revolutions who/which are a reflection and a result of our divided and callous relationship we have with each other, will bring about a real change while we continue to live a divided, callous existence which is totally cut off from nature.
