Know what the crazy thing is about people?  We are these totally complicated things.

Back in the good old days, if your computer broke, you could pull off the cover, jiggle a wire, replace a 'socket', and you'd be up and running again.  These days, if your iphone starts wigging out on you, you're toast.  We aren't tech savvy, we're tech dependent.  But the software and hardware are so integrated and complex that we don't have the first clue how to fix the damn things.

I always laughed at my mom cause she couldn't figure out the VCR.  Now, we're all the same way.  If we push play, and it doesn't work, we're lost.

Funny thing is, we should be used to that.  Because that's the way that humans work.  We only have such a small glimpse into our own consciousness.  So much of our motivation, our desire, comes from deep places that we don't know or understand.  Even the most self-acutalized/aware people only understand that there IS a deeper side.  Even they don't have access or insight into it.  They just have tips for controlling it (ie. try pushing the play button again...).
