Dilbert Dissonance

Adams predicted a Trump victory over a year ago when I predicted Trump to flame out quickly. When I see people who make correct predictions when I and pretty much everyone else is making totally inaccurate predictions, I listen to the guy that is correct -- HARD.
Earlier this week listed 24 different theories that pundits have provided for why Trump won. And the list isn’t even complete. I’ve heard other explanations as well. What does it tell you when there are 24 different explanations for a thing.
It tells you that someone just dropped a cognitive dissonance cluster bomb on the public. Heads exploded. Cognitive dissonance set in. Weird theories came out. This is the cleanest and clearest example of cognitive dissonance you will ever see. Remember it.
Just read the whole article, it is short and ALL worth it. Here is how he ends.
As I often tell you, we all live in our own movies inside our heads. Humans did not evolve with the capability to understand their reality because it was not important to survival. Any illusion that keeps us alive long enough to procreate is good enough. 
That’s why the protestors live in a movie in which they are fighting against a monster called Trump and you live in a movie where you got the president you wanted for the changes you prefer. Same planet, different realities.
I'll quibble with his evolution faith to say that I believe that we are spiritual beings living in what appears to be a physical world that is actually quantum. Our faith and our intent as a whole does much more to manifest our reality than physicalists (it's all matter) -- which we are all heavily trained to believe. Our "movie" (spirit) has more effect on what Adams sees to be "reality" than physicalists are willing to accept from my POV.
