As the 2016-2017 TV season comes to an end, this week I watched several of my favorite political dramas all of which depict corruption and how one maneuvers out of tricky situations, calling in favors and perpetuating a cliff hangar that lures us into the next season.
In what we define as "the real world"- political games create situations in which we, the audience, must speculate about what's going on behind the scenes. Hidden agendas rule - truth not known except to the creators of the program.
What seems to dominate in this timeline are one or more groups, fed up with Government failures, willing to go to any lengths to take it down and create something new. It's the old "Destruction-Resurrection Hypothesis."
To understand the algorithm of our reality, is to understand that even a new government will play by the same rules perhaps with better special effects due to technology but non-the-less all recycled. Can we break the pattern? Not until the simulation ends ... that timeline just ahead. Try to stay afloat and keep your head above water.

I've watched former political advisors and news anchors talk about the games then and now. They all agree Trump is floating down the river of self-destruction. Currently, a sense of crisis deepens in the capital after Trump's abrupt dismissal of the F.B.I. director, James Comey, days after he requested more resources for the bureau's investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election.

In Greek mythology, Styx is a deity and a river that forms the boundary between Earth and the Underworld (the domain often called Hades, which also is the name of its ruler). The rivers Styx, Phlegethon, Acheron, Lethe, and Cocytus all converge at the center of the underworld on a great marsh, which sometimes is also called the Styx. According to Herodotus, the river Styx originates near Feneos. Styx is also a goddess with prehistoric roots in Greek mythology as a daughter of Tethys, after whom the river is named and because of whom it had miraculous powers.
