The VA scandal in which veterans had to wait months before seeing a doctor, even when in critical condition, was finally, after many years, brought to the public consciousness by whistleblowers telling of veterans dying because of cooked books. How did the books stay cooked all these years? They stayed cooked because the arithmetic always added up. Until now. The arithmetic finally did them in. You can beat time, but you can’t beat arithmetic.

Quantum physics shows that time and space do not exist
The real and the illusion are the same
But somehow little numbers shake their heads and do insist
That they are real and still can play the game
Max Planck discovered Quantum and the world forever changed
What once seemed true became just ancient lore
The subatomic world revealed that all was rearranged
Except that two plus two still equaled four
