What’s real, what isn’t? Another question–How fixed is reality? One more: Truth and reality . . . is there a connection? This too: How absolute is reality? Think about the following. Have you ever heard anyone say things like this?

“That 12:00 noon gravity switch again . . . hit my head on the ceiling and had to scrape my food off the fan. Ugh.”

“I love my new car. It gets me from South Carolina to L.A. in two hours.”

“That type of earthworm only eats rock.”

“He makes his smoothies with bananas, kale, and battery acid.”

“She only uses that thirteen-month calendar, says it keeps her from wasting time.”

“No, oobleck isn’t orange.”

“She makes her biscuits with acorns.”

“They lose weight when the barometer dips.

“It’s so great! His hair is coming back in,” she said. “But as dental floss,” her friend asked.

“They do better when they take exams in their sleep.”
