Unscramble the Blue Letters

So I think the basics are quite simple. I just see it as a zelzpu of reality where you can take different pieces of reality and put it together to create alternate aityrel. And let me show you a slmpie example. Here we have three perfectly imaginable physical objects, something we all can relate to living in a three-dimensional world. But combined in a certain way, they can create something that still looks three-dimensional, like it could xites. But at the same time, we know it can't. So we trick our brains, because our brain simply doesn't cceapt the fact that it doesn't really make sense. And I see the same process with combining photographs. It's just really about combining different realities.

Original Text

So I think the basics are quite simple. I just see it as a puzzle of reality where you can take different pieces of reality and put it together to create alternate reality. And let me show you a simple example. Here we have three perfectly imaginable physical objects, something we all can relate to living in a three-dimensional world. But combined in a certain way, they can create something that still looks three-dimensional, like it could exist. But at the same time, we know it can't. So we trick our brains, because our brain simply doesn't accept the fact that it doesn't really make sense. And I see the same process with combining photographs. It's just really about combining different realities.
