Do I need power to see what I don’t understand about power, or do I need to lose power to understand?
If there’s one thing I’m afraid of, it’s losing power. When the generator dies, the lights go off and I’m in the dark with crickets. I am reduced to what little I know about where I get my power while being reminded of how much I pay for it. It’s a shock. I realize I am hopelessly dependent on something I don’t understand, yet must conform to.
If I know where I get my power, how it is generated, and I see nothing questionable about it, is it because I know too little about what I see, or because I don’t care to find out what keeps me seemingly alive?
