Phew! Good for you. The SR theory is saying that, though.
I'm understand this less than probably anyone here, but I'm just making the observation that the world only exists to you because you are perceiving it.
That is why natural selection works so well.
Don’t take my word for it though, just stick both fingers into a working electrical outlet.
But don’t stop there, take a skydiving class and jump out of an airplane without a parachute. The law of gravity, according to SR, is just an illusion; it does not objectively exist, right? So, you’ll be fine. You know, all those people that use parachutes, they are just making a fashion statement.
