We are so easily infatuated
And subtly captivated
By the powers of this world
[NOTE: The physical context of the Dream was my undergraduate school MIT. But the emotional context was Caltech, where I resigned from the student Christian fellowship just before they kicked me out (long story). Years later, I realized I should have come back for judgement, so that both I and they could confront our sins.
At any rate, I feel the dream is actually about current relationships, not what happened back in 1993. But that may help you understand the context.]
