Chapter 4

* * * * * * * * * *

It's crazy that someone like Yours Truly, with very little human experience and not smart enough to do things that everyone else can do, can come up with observations that others seem to neither notice nor care about. It's a dizzying realization that as stupid as I am, there are other people having jobs, and bringing home the bacon, who appear to have big gaps in their awareness.

Maybe awareness is a narrowly specialized ability, like carpentry or evangelism. The scary part is that our society is so delicately balanced on a web of shared human irrationality.
