Illusion: Super Short Story #538
At floor 27, the elevator opened, with the floor display saying it is at floor 25. As he entered and pressed 1 to descend, the display remained at 25, even when he reached floor 1. It made him wonder if floor 27 and 1 were illusions, with him all along at floor 25. How do we decide what is not an illusion? We probably settle for what seems the least illusory as reality. More factors seem to say he did reach floor 1 after all, as he exited, seeing the many usual things only at floor 1.
