Sanity, Rationality & Levitation

I dare to say people who are sane live irrelevant lives. They don't rock the boat: they question things but not fundamentally. They don't believe in the irrational, as if this life is totally rational, as if TV and the Internet or the economy or love are rational.

A boy who tried to levitate and found he could would have an easier time doing it again in the future. However, the mass of rational people who know levitation is impossible would impose that view on the boy, and soon he would find he could no longer levitate. In fact, he would eventually come to realise he had never levitated in the first place, that it had all simply been in his head.
