Put aside what you think you know. Imagine for a moment that for your entire life, you have heard not the simple truth, but a carefully crafted tale. Your whole understanding of history is based on that fabrication, and it is just the latest version of a lie that has been told for generations. You continually see the clues, because like any lie, there are countless loose ends and absurdities that become obvious to anyone who opens their eyes and wonders why ... There is an inner sense telling you that something is askew. Your rational mind doesn’t know what to do with the hunch. You try to ignore it, and are left with a slight cognitive dissonance that clouds your perceptions in subtle ways.
