Alternate realities are here on Earth

leave a comment »

Alternate realities exist here on Earth, and they’re very easy to find. Right here in my own country, I can travel to Burning Man, the Gathering of the Juggalos or a Tea Party rally and be in a completely different world from the one I usually inhabit, one where people have completely different cultural backgrounds and preconceptions and live in a completely different reality. Lord knows Glenn Beck lives in a different reality from me, one where the way government works and the nature of the constitution are totally unlike my world. Same goes for anyone who believes Raiki is effective, or thinks that that George Bush planned 9/11. These are radically different realities.
