  • I tend to completely ignore it and treat the world as essentially identical in appearance to the real world.

  • I know, that's the point I'm driving at. You now have a global organisation of Awakened actively reinforcing the Lie....

  • I think you'd need to elaborate this a bit more; you haven't really given a reason why science/technology would require elaborating the Lie.

    Definitely, Though I think there's an element of if-you-stat-it-they-will-kill-it going on.
