We are not even living in a lousy reality show, or in some TV series with endless seasons.

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 do not live that life.

It does not take 135 minutes to make a life, it takes almost a century.

Everything does not depend on what happens in the next ninety seconds. Ever.

The people around us do not 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.
