They say ignorance is bliss, right? Well, that’s what you currently think. However, you are just putting off what is inevitable. Change and progression are a part of life, and without them nothing will happen.

You wish to carry on living in the illusion you find yourself in. The Tower is fine, you keep telling yourself. However, you can see the cracks. You know that soon the Tower will fall.

Do you still want to be clinging onto the rubble when it does?
