Marsha Altman, the author of a series of stories that follow the events of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, is more a metaphysical concept than an atom-based being. She believes that we are trapped in a linear cause-effect universe in the shape of a spiral, known in Rabbinical terms as “hypertime.” While it is not illusory, it is possible to step outside it, where G-d parks his Chariot. Seriously, G-d parks his Chariot outside of time. And the wheels are made out of eyeballs. Look it up.
Marsha Altman also probably spends a little too much time alone.
