A faker's guide to the true nature of reality.

948jeffdorchen

Some believe there's a oneness at the beginning that decides, just for fun, to fragment itself into planets and stars and oceans and rocks and plants and creatures and people. But we're it. We're all one, pretending not to know we're all one, putting ourselves in these situations, these relationships, when really, we're not separate at all. Life's a story we're playing out. It's drama. We agreed to play out our separate roles in a game we made up called "existence." We're quite good at this game, at this art, at this pantomime, this fabulism.

In a Moment of Truth, Jeff Dorchen gets real about reality - little, bald, Jewish, existentialist, non-dualistic reality, filled with suicide bombers and Republicans and grandpa dentists and dying children - and warns that the worst part of reality is accepting that it's all there is.
