    It's a thought experiment.

    You would, I'd ask you what you were doing, and you'd say 'I'm falling'

    And I'd say, 'Is that a fact?'

    And you'd say, 'Yes.'

    I'd then ask you to conceptualize not falling, or to refuse to
    conceptualize gravity, and see what happens.

    You never answer.
