    "Joshua, where are you?"

    "Right here, Lobsang."

    "But where is 'here'?"

    "Uh, where I'm standing?"

    "Abstractly, you are here. Theoretically, you are not. Hypothetically, you're on this world. Conceivably, you are on the next. What is space, but a plaything of time? What is time, but a-"
