DESCARTES 2006 © Joost SWARTE.  New Yorker cover art. 'The evil genius, sometimes translated as 'evil demon.' Concept in Cartesian philosophy.  René Descartes hypothesized the existence of an evil demon "as clever & deceitful as he is powerful, who has directed his entire effort to misleading me." -wiki. Pretty deep philosophy that, eh? Or rampant paranoia. Hard to tell. Maybe time to stop overthinking & go for a nice walk :-) Descartes writing book surrounded by red devils. Great cartoon.

"I will suppose some malicious demon has employed all his energies in order to deceive me" is the century form of The Matrix but with substantially less kung fu and a substantially better third act.
