Our friend, the world of maya...

There is no sensation quite like that of seeing an illusion fall apart.

The other night, I was watching a program about ancient Ireland's conversion to Christianity or some such thing, and I was fairly engaged. I was listening to the historians and doctors tell me all about the reasons St. Patrick came, and then, I noticed something. The voices and the lip movements were slightly out of sync. All I could see after that was that someone would stop talking and their mouth was still going. And suddenly, I wasn't watching scientists, but rather I was watching a recording of a scientist's image while also hearing a recording of a scientist. Not only that, but I realized they were two seperate entities all together. Once the two were no longer simultaneous, the illusion was lost.

No hay banda, de ninguna manera.
