Sensory perception can be a cause of deceptive analysis when it comes to the 'real world'. For instance, the problem of being colour blind deprives you of a certain level of information about the world you see. In Tommy's case, it's easily said that he decided to reject one world in favour of another, ignoring reality in favour of one he produced, but it doesn't negate the other world. Imagination may be a grand source for original thought, but it has infinite potential. Now not all of us have inept, or dead senses, and certainly most people who've been in the middle of a hurricane can't tune it out. Sure it's easy to argue the potential's there, but to disregard something, to decide that it's not there because you'd prefer it weren't is ignorant, or because you're unaware is short sighted. That's not to sound offensive, more to literally say you're ignoring and/or disregarding what does or could exists. Being snobbish about what does and does not exist won't create or destroy that which is, regardless of whether or not you're aware of it. A thought is much like a carrot (feel free to substitute for your own favorite root vegetable here). If you were to plant carrots in a wild field, they would grow on their own and you likely wouldn't know they were there. However, if you were to pass by one and decide to pluck it out from the ground, you'd have a carrot, and you might even notice that there are other carrots growing nearby. thought is much the same, I'd say, in that it's there waiting for you to find it, you simply have to pluck it from the ground, so to speak.
Analog's underwear are digital. right now they're set to inverse 1 (I think that means they're on my head).
