It is fascinating that what is happening in the operation of civilization depends very much upon perceptions. These differ so much that it would appear to a detached observer, such as Laprin, that there are two worlds. Myopia is the world as perceived by humans and their perceptions govern the decisions they make. Real is the world in which natural forces have always determined what happens - and always will - even when the residents of Myopia make unwise decisions.
Myopia has invented tools to use Gaia's natural bounty to construct,
operate and maintain the temporary tangible edifice that is Tityas of
the Real world. The bits and pieces of Tityas provide the goods and
services enjoyed by Myopia for now. They will have to learn the hard way
that the divestment of Gaia's bounty is the reality and that monetary investment is an unsustainable delusion.
