The Awakening.

It began

as the second decade

of the 21 Century

entered middle age,

an underlying

sense of unease,

change.

New technology

increasingly

altering perceptions.
Reality

not seeming so sure.

Our five senses,

were they enough?

Were they telling

us the whole story,

or was most of it

hidden

from our perceptions?

Increasingly

questions were being asked.

Are we alone?

Do we live in a computer

simulation,

a Matrix?

Is there a Multiverse?

Parallel dimensions?

Quantum mechanics

suggested the underlying

substructure of reality

was just probabilities.
What does that even mean?

Are we even bright enough

to ask the right questions?

String theory,

M theory,

the theory of

everything!

What!

The Singularity is near,

post humanism,

immortality.

Will people learn

to live together

or tear each other apart?

Are we on the cusp

of a golden age

or a nightmare?

Utopia or dystopia?
Will we ever know

the truth?
Yet to be determined.
