And that's why even though nothing all that weird happened yet, it seems that at any moment something truly crazy could, cause the whole universe might be some illusion in only my mindVenus is very bright in the evening sky these days. Sometimes I look at that and think about balls spinning and revolving in space.

They basically saying that the kind of nothing we understand is impossible. And to us it seems that kinda of nothing would be the only thing possible.We're likely just a random roll of the dice in an endless multiverse. Cosmological constants like the speed of light are arbitrary values determined at the time the aforementioned dice are rolled.
