My stepsister Kaye came home one day excited about a class she had taken. Apparently, this teacher had told the students that nothing is as it seems; that a table was only a table, as we had been “conditioned” into thinking that it was a table, and it could in fact have been the sky. Suppose life is the opposite of what we’ve been conditioned to think it is; that our dreams, that crazy, scary place we go to when we sleep is in fact reality, and that what we experience while “awake” and “aware” is something else entirely. Imagine.
