Literature and Music are my addictions of choice and always have been. Inside a good book, the worlds that open are far bigger and deeper than almost any film can ever be. Growing up I would hide a light under my pillow or sneak out to the garage and spend the night reading incredible biographies, animal stories, fairy tales, westerns, mysteries and occasionally comic books. To this day, the lure to simply stay up all night reading is only overcome with difficulty.

So to those who write and bring to life amazing universes populated with incredible personalities and fabulous creatures; all I can say is thank you.
An excerpt from my new favorite philosophy blogger Scott Alexander from Slate Star Codex:
The old man stamped his boot in the red dirt, kicking up a tiny cloud of dust. “There’s a new sheriff in town,” he told them.
“No, I’m pretty sure that’s impossible,” says Parmenides. “There’s no such thing as change, only the appearance thereof.”
“Well then,” says the old man, “I reckon you won’t mind the false illusion of your surroundings appearing to change into a jail cell.” And he took out his six-shooter and held it steady.
