"'If you were me, and your wife were sick, desperately so, with no hope of recovery, would you leave her? Or would you stay with her, even if you had travelled into the future and knew for an absolute certainty that the damage to her brain could never be reversed? And staying with her would mean--'

'That's right,' Eric said.
'I'd stay with her,' the cab decided.
'Because,' the cab said, 'life is composed of reality configurations so constituted. To abandon her would be to say, I can't endure reality as such. I have to have uniquely special easier conditions.'
'I think I agree,' Eric said after a time. 'I think I will stay with her.'
'God bless you, sir,' the cab said. 'I can see that you are a good man.'"
Originally posted by Key-MinderSo this woman was toxic to the T, yet maybe behind closed doors she satisfied a hunger in her man, or with all her going out and cheating, it allows him more time to work on his personal projects because he doesn't have to focus on her during the hours she is gone. With that in mind, the man could say his reality holds special and unique conditions. Adopting that mind set, would make his reality easier for him to deal with. Therefore, his current reality can already be seen as a uniquely special easier condition.
