Gee whiz, learned something new: everything is an illusion! Duh! No kidding! The real truth is, that reality SUCKS! Love, childeen,family, friends, it's all baloney! It all passes. Go to any old age home and see how many couples there are. Look at how few people come to visit, and how rarely they do. Look, the truth is, you're born alone, you die along, and everything in between is an illusion, or delusion. Video games are the only things that are real. You control control your avatar, and you shoot, kill and die, and start again :) Reality sucks.Virtual reality ROCKS! That's why more and more kids are into video games. Kids are smart.
