      • “I would put him in a room with a sink and a metal bed, a prison bed, and I would gradually, over the course of many, many months add just trace amounts of LSD into his water, and then I would gradually move the walls of his room so that it was no longer square, but not really noticeably… there’s no reference point. Gradually the bed would also stop being square, it would be a little narrower at one end and a little bit wider at the other, but that would be true of the room too…” -JR
        • “What if the bed just inexplicably rose about an inch over the course of a month, so he’d think he’s getting shorter?” -MM
        • “That is exactly right. He’d think he was getting shorter... His shoes are just slightly getting smaller or bigger, and the dimensions of his room are changing, but all the other things in the room are also changing so the lines still look parallel. So he’s looking down the line of the bed and it’s still parallel to the wall, but it seems like a rhombus now. I would do that to him. I would do it, and I would watch the videos. I would watch the closed-circuit cameras of him trying to navigate this new space slightly tripping on LSD but not quite enough to identify what was going on. I would do that for hours. I would cackle. I would eat microwave popcorn.” -JR
