"When I was a kid I used to stand on the dock looking out at the ripples moving across the water.
It felt like I was moving.
Now, when I look out at society...
It feels like I'm crazy."
- Simone Danaby
This satirical, self-mocking slice of life of an American single mother's year-long odyssey documents and sometimes debunks societal prejudices, paranoia, and supernatural experiences. As she calls
the system out on their lack of objectivity in labeling and ostracizing her troubled young son, she clings to sharp wit and a keen sense of logic to preserve her sanity in a world that, to her, seems dangerously close to the edge.

The three stages of truth were defined by German Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860).
Truth passes through three phases:
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is fiercely and violently opposed.
Third, it becomes self-evident.
I discovered this quote when I first began my left field studies. It occurred to me that the alien abduction phenomena might be in the first stage of truth; however, it's not sound logic to conclude that just because something is ridiculed, it's a truth going through the first phase. If truth has phases, absurdity must, too.

Absurdity passes through three stages:
First, it's an urban legend that you receive through email.
Second, it's passed off as fact by at least one of the major news networks.
Third, it's the subject of a tax-funded Congressional investigation.
