Non-Sequiturs: 11.20.08

The world we live in.JPG* “Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world? Where none suffered, where everyone would be happy. It was a disaster. No one would accept the program. Entire crops were lost. Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world. But I believe that, as a species, human beings define their reality through suffering and misery. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the Matrix was redesigned to this: the peak of your civilization.” Just take a look at Cravath’s bonus memo from last year and read the happy comments. [Above The Law]

* A lawyer found a job! Sure, it was Paul Clement, and the job was at King & Spalding. But hey, a job’s a job. [WSJ Law Blog]
