The stuff of fantasy

For a long time I would not believe that Formula One racing cars really existed. They seemed exactly the stuff of fantasy. I finally came to accept their reality, even though I had still only seen them in pictures and on television. Since then I've also come to believe in space shuttles, hovercrafts, whales, platypuses and dinosaurs, Albert Einstein (first I thought he was only a cartoon character), the Hindenburg, a man on the moon, symbiogenesis, Antarctica, and a silent explosion that was the start of everything, without understanding any of these things.
