Imagine an "alternate reality" where it is possible to balance a Mack Bulldog tractor trailer on the sharpened tip of your No. 2 yellow pencil.
And imagine, also, that the tip of that same pencil is worth a small fortune.
This "reality" that I'm sketching out for you isn't something that I grabbed from the plot of one of those cheesy Sci-Fi Channel late-night movies.
In fact, this reality actually isn't one that I'd refer to as "alternate."
It's a reality - a certainty, in fact - that I've been studying, talking, and writing about for a long time.
