### 2 Things Challenge: Seat/Real

SEAT/REAL: Cousin Fin in his car seat,

keepin' it real in plaid and polka dots.

REAL:  "What is real?" asked the Velveteen Rabbit.  Is it what we can sense with our bodies, the external?  Is it only what has been discovered and named?  Is it the genetically modified food we consume?  Is it the history we believe in?  Is it mitochondria and war and dust pneumonia and extinct species leaving fossils under the layers of Earth's skin?  Is it seasons and moving planets and biodiversity?  Is it truth and consequences and unexplained events?  Is it the ratio of hapless consumers to overwhelmed producers?  Is it cycles and routines and needs that must be met?  Is it the knowledge that, whatever our beliefs, we can't be certain if there's a second act or if this is the only dance we dance?
