There is a substrate of Terrorism that is growing exponentially out of the purview of our linear perspective. A monolithic block of Terrorism will soon be presenting itself almost without notice. Think of a so-called isolated terror threat as a lily pad on a pond. As days go by, there is a natural doubling progression of lily pads upon that pond. Because we are looking at it through our linear perspective, we feel that we have time to take a week's vacation and deal with the growing lily pad problem when we return. However, upon that return, we find that the pond is completely covered in lily pads. Yesterday, it was only half covered. Already, this war has lasted longer than World War II. We need to wake up and pull this threat out by the roots now, before we are bent over a chopping block with a sword on our necks.
