The World Was Flat Once
The world was flat once not too long ago.
An unreasonable few were radical enough to challenge this notion, which the masses believed to be infallible, scientific truth.
Many were set afire as heretics, burned until their bones became dust. A fortunate few were merely exiled. Most got back in line for fear of the consequences for themselves or those they loved.
Yes, the world was flat once.
But Once is always Today. The world has always been flat in some way, or so we've been told. We have been told who we are all our lives by those who came before us and those who hold sway from positions of power.
We've been told what's possible, impossible, how the world works and how things will never change, whom we should fear, kill (or risk being killed first) and who we must build walls against to preserve our way of life.
We all believe the world is flat in our own ways.
On some level we have agreed with what we were taught, and so we have the world we have. As a people think in their heart so are they. As within so without. As above so below. Fear is a convincing master, and a shrewd one, for it rules through deceit.
You cannot change something in the same way you create it. You must see a new possibility. Seeing precedes being. Unlearning precedes true knowledge.
In truth, the world is not flat and never was. We know it now and wonder why anyone ever believed you could sail off the edge and into the abyss of space.
But the only way to discover this for yourself is to leave the comfortable shore, which you have always known, behind and set off to uncharted waters. To find out for yourself.
Explorers and pioneers are always the first to know freedom from the Known. Be that.
