'The old man said, "You will be required to do wrong no matter where you go. It is the basic condition of life, to be required to violate your own reality. At some time, every creature that lives must do so. It is the ultimate shadow, the defeat of all creation; this is the curse at work, the curse that feeds an all life. Everywhere in the universe."'
-Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep
