I think I do, but I'm not telling. The truth is phenomenally mundane. So much so that if humans actually thought about it and took it to heart, they would shuck their clothes and be done with civilization as we know it.

We are being 'had' by our own intelligence. It's a bug, not a feature, and it keeps us from spending every moment in total wonder and satisfaction with each other and the environment that spawned us.

Being smart ain't all it's cracked up to be, but being stupid is probably worse (or so many 'smart' people believe).
