That's almost like how the fish doesn't know it's in water, since that is the only thing it knows, there's nothing else to compare it to.

Oh, what great being is this that tries to imagine what it is like to be me, by using the splendid tool of the imagination!
That was VERY cool to read!

Why is that, then, nothingness... and God doesn't see the trees in the cup?
Why is that the truth of the cup from God's view that there is nothing ...
why isn't He seeing the trees and cars? LOL! I missed that part.
Thanks

To think that the tree,
Should continue to be,

I am always about in the quad,
And that's why the tree,
Will continue to be,
Since observed by, Yours Faithfully, God"
