Are you a Snork ?
When I was 9 I was watching THE SNORKS which is a crazy cartoon about this insane underwater civilization
The Snorks have snorkels on their heads, which are used to propel them swiftly through the water. When a Snork becomes excited his tube makes a “snork” sound. You may remember it.
Any way – one particular episode had the snorks watching on their TV – a show about people living above the sea on the land.
I thought what if my friend actually is a snork and perceives reality as a snork does and right now he think hes in his snork house watching a show about Above ground people who are in their above ground non under sea house watching a show about undersea people….
I asked him…
“Hey – are you a snork?” he said ” No- what are you talking about?”
I said ” Is this air around you actually water and are you under the sea?”
He said ” No – Im at your house. Are you mental or something?”
Then it hit me.
If he actually was a snork and I couldn’t see it of course he would interpret the conversation thus.
“Hey – are you a Human?” he then would say ” No- what are you talking about?”
I said ” Is this water around you actually air and are you on the land?”
He would say ” No – Im at your under sea shell house. Are you mental or something?”
And me living in my talking Monkey reality would of course only hear the words that would fit this reality.
I almost went Mad right then as I tried to figure out a combination of words or phrases that would pierce through the wall.
SO. This brings me to the next point.
There is NO WAY I was ever going to find out barring some kind of Matrixeske Matter energy space and Time MELT.
Sometimes though… I think I see glimpses…

OK Wez, here you go.
We do not live in an underwater world, we live on a tiny speck in an incredible vastness, the true scope of which is so incredibly gargantuan, that it makes the idea of a single, all powerful creative force a slightly wistful, but mostly arrogant joke.
It also makes it less like hubris when I say “This Galaxy is ours to do with as we will”.
