Welcome to Romper Room. It’s a magical place where reality can bend, twist and shift at any time and for any reason. What’s true on one day may be completely opposite on another. What is written down and considered a “rule” is never quite what it seems. Rules don’t matter. Time doesn’t matter. Precedents do not create planks on which to stand with sure footing. What is matter can become emptiness and emptiness can become matter without prior notice. Einstein’s Theory of Relativity provides a model for understanding this. Today, I got to experience this firsthand. Reality is quite the plaything here. If life is a game, then reality is a toy.
