Once upon a time there was a beautiful old country manor. It was built long ago by hard working people who made it to last for their descendants, so long as they could work hard, and maintain the beautiful home that was left to them.
Generations later, some who lived there noticed that some of the rooms had become uninhabitable and the space for the owners had been reduced by a fair amount. Sure, sometimes they could go in to the old rooms if they were very very quiet and didn’t try and fix or adjust anything or even let their presence be known in these rooms. But basically they had lost the use of the space, and seemed genuinely puzzled as to why this was the case.
One day, a Danish architect came in and dragged some of the owners of the manor house into the lost rooms and pointed at a giant and expanding hornets nest and said, “these are why you can’t use parts of your own home anymore and soon, you won’t be able to use any of it”.
They didn’t believe him and called him names, because they did not want to have to face the difficult fact that they had allowed their ancestral and only home to be taken over in this way, and by such hostile and dangerous invaders.
So the architect decided to poke the nest with a stick and show the residents what these new residents were like, and make it undeniable that they had to face the facts and deal with them, or surrender the house to the hornets.
The residents decided that now was the time to charge the architect with the crime of forcing reality on them. No one likes an alarm clock when all you want to do is sleep.
