Once there was a philosopher who sought the answer to the True Question. For all his life he lived perfectly in accordance to the Creator, and on reaching Heaven he sought counsel, and was greeted by the angel Uriel, who knew everything in Reality.

Uriel spoke,- "WHAT IS IT YOU WISH TO KNOW?"

The philosopher spoke,- "Excuse my asking, but is this Heaven real?"

Uriel spoke,- "CAN YOU NOT SEE ALL BUT PERFECTION AROUND YOU?"

The philosopher spoke,- "Yes, it is I that feels the exonerable joy of Heaven in my heart, and it is I who knows that I am in Heaven. Yet is it not the case that these may be false?"

Uriel spoke,- "I DO NOT KNOW OF WHAT YOU ARE MAKING REFERENCE TO."

The philosopher spoke,- "Is it not true that Earth is fake, and our souls are simply there to be judged?"

Uriel spoke,- "THAT IS CORRECT."

The philosopher spoke,- "Is it not true that what I used to think was sensation was fake, and that real sensation is only present in Heaven?"

Uriel spoke,- "THAT IS CORRECT."

The philosopher spoke,- "Then could it not be the same that my soul, from which I feel the bountiful joy of Heaven, is false also? Then could it not be the same that the sensation of the bountiful joy of Heaven, emanating from my soul, is false also?"

Uriel spoke,- "ARE YOU NOT FEELING THE REALITY OF HEAVEN AT THIS MOMENT?"

And the philosopher felt the current of reality crash through his soul, and what was in Heaven was Real, and he knew that This was the ultimate Reality; what he used to think was Earth was a thin veil, and there was no other reality to surpass Here.

Uriel spoke,- "IS THAT ALL YOU WISH TO KNOW?"

And yet the philosopher was not satisfied.

The philosopher spoke,- "Is it not the case that there may exist a fake world, from which a philosopher plays the same role as I; he feels the currents of Reality, and believes that his world is Real, when it is not?"

Uriel spoke,- "AND IN WHAT REGARDS CAN YOU DISTINGUISH THE FAKE AND THE REAL WORLDS? IS IT NOT THE CASE THAT A FAKE CROW AND A REAL CROW MAY PRODUCE THE SAME CRY, THAT A FAKE SEED AND A REAL SEED MAY GROW THE SAME TREE? DOES IT MATTER IF A SENSATION COMES FROM THE FAKE, OR A SENSATION COMES FROM THE REAL, IF IT IS THE SAME SENSATION?"

The philosopher spoke,- "Is your answer then to say that no Reality exists?"

Uriel spoke,- "IF THERE WAS ONE, OR IF THERE WAS NOT ONE, WOULD HEAVEN NOT BE ENJOYED NONTHELESS?"

The philosopher turned and left, having his answer to all he wanted to know.

And the angel Uriel stopped rendering when he was out of frame.
