More On Reality A

More On Reality A

If, ten or so years ago, I saw a movie that involved a future in which a mysterious figure distributed the secrets of the world’s governments onto an anonymous robust computer network, and the director made him look like this, I’d be all grooooan. Bring on the rollerblades.

Let’s call the world we actually have now Reality A and the world that we might have had if 9/11 had never happened Reality B. Then we can’t help but notice that the world of Reality B appears to be realer and more rational than the world of Reality A. To put itin different terms, we are living a world that has an even lower level of reality than the unreal world. What can we possibly call this if not “chaos”?
