Now I have an irrational fear that I am an AI on the net, dreaming that I am a man.

I am a figment of someone else's imagination.

So far, though, no-one has been willing to admit responsibility.

ah, so you found me out.

I shall rename you Figment Von Corax, and call you mine.

Clowns-French clowns- and harlequins. And emetophobia and choking. So choking on a clown would be my worst nightmare.


Soooo .... (dare I say it?)

Does this taste funny?

It certainly sounds funny!

Good one for a figment.

 Have you ever seen 'The 13th Floor?' Or read Philip K. Dick?

 I have known we were all figments ever since.

(based upon the terribley sick joke - 2 cannibals were eating a clown, and one said to the other
"does this taste funny?"

Have I Read PK Dick?
Hell I was PK Dick!

no , wait , that was Gordon R Dickson. ( I got the Dick* fellows confused again )
Oh, wait,  I wasn't him, I just fixed his computers and hung out with him
and ended up going to several Cons as his unofficial but authorized surrogate.
So that is "sorta " being him, but not really...
But I had hung out with him for so long I unconsciously mimed his speach ( oft' called Murpheling )
and thus began the official "Gordon R Dickson" Murphel alike contest ...

but yes, I read almost all of PK Dick's works ( as well as absoluely all of Harlan Ellison's works during a binge but nevermindthat now)  particularly "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep"  which became the Movie Blade Runner and yes the poor sod was brilliant but did too many drugs which lead to complete and utter paranoia and the inability to differentiate between reality and his fantasies which became his paranoid delusions which overwhelmed him and ultimately led to his death.

(breathe in)

And yet, I percieve we are not so much figments, as perhaps we are "sentient energetic electrical impulses temporarily housed in meat sacks and thus trapped in a linear temporal existant" and that our sentient existance is completely at the whim of the elctrical and temporal galactic storms which then segues directly into my other phobia:

the fear that my existance (as I percieve it) will essentailly snuff out at the next interstellar electro-chemical-psycich event which is sufficiently powerful to overwhelm whateveritis that has protected us ( or just me) until now.

and the further issue of "does it matter", "would it be bad or would it be better" , and "what difference does (woud) it make?"
