Entertainment has seduced us into believing that we have a chance to live the life they live in the movies. Even the people in the movies don’t live that life.
It doesn’t take 135 minutes to make a life, it takes almost a century.
Everything doesn’t depend on what happens in the next ninety seconds. Ever.
The people around us don’t live secret lives. Spaceships and evil cowboys and diseases are not going to turn the world upside down tomorrow, either.
Life is actually far much better than it is in the movies. And it even takes longer.
