On a bright sunny day at noon in April, all the traffic has its lights on.

“One plus one equals two. That’s all we’ve learned but one plus one has never equalled two. There are in fact no numbers and no letters.”

‘We have a hodge-podge of leaks in reality.’
The soft-drink stand fell into bits. Molecules. He saw the molecules, colourless, without qualities, that made it up. Then he saw through, into the space beyond it; he saw the hill behind, the trees and sky. He saw the soft-drink stand go out of existence, along with the counter man, the cash register, the big dispenser of orange drink, the taps for Coke and root beer, the ice-chests of bottles, the hot dog broiler, the jars of mustard, the shelves of cones, the row of heavy round metal lids under which were the different ice creams.
In its place was a slip of paper. He reached out his hand and took hold of the slip of paper. On it was printing, block letters.
Turning away, he unsteadily walked back, past children playing, past the benches and the old people. As he walked he put his hand into his coat pocket and found the metal box he kept there.
Memory. Opening the metal box.
‘Everything that appears in the physical realm is always connected with energy flow at the invisible level.’
From Scientist Study.com :
The original double-slit experiment, performed in 1801 by Thomas Young at the Royal Institution, showed that light acts as a wave. Further experiments, however, showed that light actually behaves as both a wave and as particles—revealing its quantum nature.
These experiments had a profound impact on quantum physics, revealing the dual particle and wave nature of not just light, but other “particles” including electrons, neutrons, and whole atoms.
Now, a team led by Imperial College London physicists has performed the experiment using “slits” in time rather than space. They achieved this by firing light through a material that changes its properties in femtoseconds (quadrillionths of a second), only allowing light to pass through at specific times in quick succession.
Lead researcher Professor Riccardo Sapienza, from the Department of Physics at Imperial, said, “Our experiment reveals more about the fundamental nature of light while serving as a stepping-stone to creating the ultimate materials that can minutely control light in both space and time.”

What the *bleep*, do we know?
All I know is that I know nothing – except I don’t know that… do I?
I believe we do know. Accessing the knowledge is the difficult part. There are defences and walls and gatekeepers.
Time out of joint.

Please don’t leave me hanging. What happened after he opened the box?
If it’s like The Indian in the Cupboard, can he recreate the drink stand? It shouldn’t be all that difficult because, as solid as it is, it’s mostly empty space
He discovered his reality was totally fake.
Mysteriouser and mysteriouser.
