Given all the stars and galaxies bending light hither and thither, I'm amazed we can see anything coherent at all.

Reality is an illusion that we all agree upon.

That article was written by a clown.

Clowns are people who dress and act foolishly to entertain people, typically at a circus.

The first modern circus was staged in London in the late 18th century.

The term circus, however, is a reference to the latin word for arena.

Scholarly research indicates that only a clown would write an article like this.

Illusion is the reality we all agree on.

Reality is real. What is not is our interpretation of it. In the parable of the blind men and the elephant, each man feels a different part of the animal, and is thus 'right' about their interpretation. Meanwhile the elephant is like 'who the fark are these guys'.

What's 'real' here is that the universe isn't just a stage for physics to play on, the stage is a part of the show. Whatever light that gets to us in whatever shape is what we have to work with. All we're doing is mapping out the shape of the universe it passed through. It's less like a stage and more like a skate park.
