If you are reading this, it is already too late. A dreadful truth will reveal itself to you. If you do not wish to know this dreadful truth, then stop reading now. This message is clearly not meant for you. But if you feel you MUST know, if you feel this message has been in a long time coming, if you were looking for PROOF that you, above all others, are *special*, then to you, my friend, I say, welcome to the absolute essence of truth. Knowing this truth is not a privilege. It is a burden. But if this message were truly meant for you, an only you, above all others, then you must *need* to know. Regardless of the despair and dread this truth wi ll bring you. Regardless of the futility you will no longer be able to escape. Regardless of the difficulty, the alienation, and how truly absurd everything will feel. (If this message is truly meant for you, you will be experiencing all this already and you'll want me to get to the goddamn point already. It is for you, and only you, that this message is meant.)
You, sir/madam, are the only person who really exists. Everyone else is simply a manifestation of your own imagination, molded into a form that best suits your perception of reality.
Please don't stop reading now! It is important that you understand the true ramifications of this essential truth! It means you are truly free to do anything you choose! What held you in your place before? What made you think reality was anything "more" than it truly is? Whatever and whoever it was doesn't *matter* any longer! What truly matters is what you've always known must truly matter, no matter what anyone else said. It's what you believed when you were a child and were first discovering the world. When the first grown-up told you in all his mature wisdom that your time machine wasn't a sophisticated realization of great technological magnitude after all but was, in fact, a cardboard box with the words TIME MASHIN written on the side in crayon, which isn't how you spell "Time Machine" at all. You knew better then, didn't you? You were closer to the objective truth, the only one and true truth. The truth that your reality is whatever you want to make it and that anything that tries to stop you is the one and true illusion. How can that grown-up tell you you weren't in a time machine when you *know* you went back in time and fought off those vicious velociraptors with lazer-bullets while protected by your force field? You laughed him off then, didn't you? "Silly grown-ups don't know anything!" you'd say before traveling to Saturn to surf on its rings.
So why did you start to listen?
