And now a few words from Cognitive Dissonance's better half on creating a lifestyle change we can live with.
Rarely if ever do we consider that we presently labor under our own woefully wrong flat world perspectives so deeply engrained within our present day mindset that we are completely and utterly blind to how wrong we might just be.
