The Enemy Within

Resistance is Implacable

Resistance is like the Alien, or the Terminator, or the shark in Jaws. It cannot be reasoned with. It understand nothing but power. It is an engine of destruction, programmed from the factory with one object only: to prevent us from doing our work. Resistance is implacable, intractable, indefatigable. Reduce it to a single cell and that cell will continue to attack. 
This is Resistance's nature. It's all it knows.
The War of Art, Steven Pressfield

adjectivenot to be appeased, mollified, or pacified; inexorable: an implacable enemy

Yes, I had to look up the word "implacable." Mr. Resistance is that word and every one of it's meanings. It's an enemy, a foe, an army bent on destruction.

No wonder I can't get any work done around here.
