"... nothing ever really happens." It just appears to happen,
so strongly, so pervasively, and with such a complete lack of
possibility to evade/escape (short of death), that we must
deal with what appears to happen pretty much exactly as we
would if it really was happening. Try not happening to breathe
for a few minutes. Distress happens. Truly.

I can make all the philosophical assertions I wish to make,
about the non-reality of "physical reality", but when I
attempt to walk through that brick wall over there, my
non-existent nose gives a very convincing approximation
of breaking, spurting non-existent blood down the non-
existent front of my non-existent shirt, and hurting like
a very existent sonovabitch! Furthermore, when that blood
stain dries, it's going to be amazingly hard to remove,
for something that isn't actually "there", and didn't
actually happen... or such has been my experience, as it happens. :-)
