There's a solution
As far as I'm concerned that was a revelation that has made so much of the conflict of explaining and dissemination of information moot.
I did know, both intuitively and rationally, what the world was like. Unfortunately, I still didn't have the capabilities, or inclination to change course when I might have, or reevaluate conditions or relationships because, only with maturity could I have the perspective that would have enhanced these experiences. It's all just another one of those space time continuum issues that could so easily have been solved with a minimal amount of foresight.
I knew that the business model was king, that looks and size were queen and that aging meant invisibility. I just really didn't know how the weight of all of those variables would become so burdensome that they would flatten me, and ultimately require a tremendous amount of fortitude and ingenuity just to manage the basics.
