He inhaled the odors of stone, of urine, bitterly tonic, the smells of rust and of lubricants, felt the presence of a current of urgency, speed, of infinite desire, possibly related to the drive within himself, his own streaming nervous vitality. ‎· errorist

напомнило (извините): "He could hear sounds from all over London, a murmuring. And as he listened, it resolved itself into its components, cars and arguments and music. He felt as if the music was everywhere, all around him, a hundred different rhythms in counterpoint, a tapestry being woven underneath him." и всякое такое ‎· liquidgold

By yourself you can't determine which reality is real. Any philosopher can tell you it's based, like all rational judgement, on common proof. Only this particular way of doing it was perverse.
