It all seems to point to no escape. It seems like amongst the traits of our species is a propensity for context-building. We may struggle against the deusions that surround us, and we may even momentarily escape Flatland, but the victory is temporary. We will instinctively create a new context out of the broken fragments that forks the basis of new delusions.

There are ideas in modern physics of new universes continually "bubbling up" from fluctuations in the background space-time in some kind of frothing multiverse. Are we condemned to just creating new Flatlands at various angles to the one we rail against?

But maybe just the awareness that we do so is something in which to take solace...
