A truism

 Tom, How is the truth of reality known? then again how real is your view.?
Can you see the himalayas from your bedroom window for instance? jane, well on a computer window; yes that is so.'

 So.. But that is just a representation of 'reality' ( surely ) indeed..
Jane, no not 'indeed' I have not done anything yet.'yet that is part of 'reality' such discourse'.. I have not done much.. So does that mean I am not real.?

Jane, in-deed the very air does more to prove its existence than 'I', it is quite
Invisible yet no one doubt's its 'reality' Tom, yet there is no air on Mars.?
Tom, so is that the reason people can't get any oxygen in the U K.?

Jane,no that's the reality for one; in the U K 2017, they are encouraging older people to die, that's why you.. Well some people won't be given it anyway..
So that's reality.! Tom I don't think much of that.' Jane, That's beside the point..'

 Tom,what point.? Jane,the point of my finger.' Tom but that's rounded.. Well anyway I would like to express my displeasure with the way reality is accepted.' Jane, and how can you do that.? Tom, I can discuss it with people..)

Jane, but would they wan't to talk about it with you? what makes you so sure?
Tom, well you are talking to me on it, so I would guess there's a real' chance'
Jane, you will have to get your evidence together.' Tom yes I am considering.'

Jane, how are going to present your case.? Tom well I shall open it for starters.
Tom, I have it with me by the way..' Jane can I have a peek, Tom, a himalayan one?  L O L)) Jane No silly; Oh a look then.' Tom ok I'll just go get it...'

Tom, right here it is, as a matter of fact you can open it while I get a coffe. Jane, good; Snick-snick..But it..Its (empty) Tom returning, you know Jane
That's the best case of all for reality, cause; after all it has nothing to prove..'

Joe...the only experience with time travel I am aware is the echo of the Circada's whine...resonating thru my day....this amalgam of characters you have engaged in dialogue sounds strikingly close to discourse here at soup...well done!

Hello Charlie, well ventured input indeed, I just got into a deep thought mode, this is what came out, I am touching partly also on how an event has put me on a course of action, I hopefully will be abe to Carry through to an effective result although truly this requires Gods help.'
