Peaking behind the curtain is like cheating in video games. One can level up their character slowly and work hard for a virtual godlike weapon or they can enter a cheat code and have it sent to their inventory immediately for free.
However, whenever I did cheat, I ended up not wanting to play the game anymore. I had seen it all. While impressive, thing would not be all that different. The real enjoyment should have lied in just playing the game, but it is far too easy to get caught up in the dream and what it could possibly bring.
