There is a real energetic parasite alive in the world of hypotheticals. Hypotheticals are invincible. They have no heart to heal or stop. They secrete our sympathy and feed it to a blind hole that can never be satisfied. We give them more empathy than we give ourselves. We make laws to protect these invisibles at the expense of real people. Hypotheticals are procedural algorithms. This is the very essence of what we call “demons” but are too afraid to personify long enough to see them.
