Sam, I was glad to receive your question – having just been considering this myself. Good thing I have an answer for you!
It turns out that when you are on a road trip, and it feels like it is taking forever for you to reach your final destination, it’s because… it actually does take forever.
Let me explain.
When you jump onto the highway / interstate, your car actually merges into another dimension. In that dimension there is only a long line or a road, if you will, with no beginning and no end.
Many believe that this ‘road’ is part of some sort of government research project that has gone wrong, because it cannot be removed from our world. So, instead of acknowledging that there is a problem, we are encouraged to use it to… move about the country.
And so we do.
But at what cost?
I’ll tell you!
When you get on the highway / interstate, part of you joins with this never-ending line. Forever. There is no way to leave it. Ever.
Now, you may say, but I was on it the other day, and I got off just fine. To you I say: sure you did. Sure you got off, but did… all of you?
Now, just hear me out.
Part of you did get off the highway / interstate. But part of you didn’t. And it never will.
But that can’t possibly be real! you may exclaim.
It doesn’t sound reasonable, but when you think of it, there can be no other explanation.
Think about it like this: even after leaving the road, don’t you feel exhausted? This is because part of you is still on the highway / interstate dimension. And it always will be. Therefore road trips feel like theytake forever because… they do.
Until next time, keep it factual out there!
