I’m a real person, just like you.
I’m sitting behind a computer as I write this. Just like you’re reading it from an electronic device.

It’s hard for me to remember at times, you know, that we’re not what we think we are.
We hover over the world around us, but only in dreams.
Within the body, everything seems as it is.
