Are you 'The Greatest' or a Failure?

Muhammad Ali screw the system

Last weekend, I went to the Muhammad Ali exhibition at the O2 in London. 

I left the venue buzzing. Not only was I dazzled by Ali's boxing prowess and career, I was awed by the strength he showed in standing up for what he believed in and touched by his humanity.

But I also left the venue in a deep state of thought. Many of Ali's quotes were plastered around the walls and most of them referenced his incredible self-belief. He went around telling people he was 'The Greatest' and this was even before he won a championship belt.

What to do if you're not 'Normal'

Turing Not Normal

Have you ever been at work, school or a social gathering and not felt part of what's going on?

The Matrix is real! I knew it when I walked out of the cinema over 14 years ago and my subsequent experiences only confirmed my initial suspicion. 

Not that I believe we're human batteries plugged into a computer mainframe, but the metaphor is very real. A whole planet fed a false version of reality built on the lie that we're limited, unable to govern our lives and that the material is more important than the spiritual. I call it The System. The Wachowski brothers called it The Matrix, but we're talking about the same thing.
