"We saw it and yet we didn't see it. ...

Or rather we were trained NOT to see it. Conned, perhaps, into
thinking that the real action was metropolitan and all this was just
boring hinterland. It was a puzzling thing. The truth knocks on your
door and you say, 'Go away, I'm looking for the truth,' and so it goes
away. Puzzling."
--from "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" by Robert M. Pirsig
