If you consider the matrix of all observer-moments (possibly under the eye
of something like Hilgard's Hidden Observer), then it would be impossible
to cut the links any more than trying to wear a shirt with all the threads
cut. The shirt would disintegrate off your back (like my Izod's did
recently.) Or possibly, it could be like a Photoshop image with a 100
subtle layers---remove the layers and the entire image changes
slightly---but after awhile you're down to one monochromatic layer.
