    Default Warp Speed is a healthy alternative to the harmful UV emissions of Light Speed.

    We see, we hear, so therefore we know,
    but reality may say that it ain't so.

    One's observation and perception of a certain situation,
    oft times leads to misdirection and self-deception of information.

    Was the Saint still alive when canonized?

    And did the martyr die before sentence was realized?

    Was George from the Old or from the New? There is a contrast.

    Was the old rich uncle really half-glassed?

    Do expect the affect of this effect,
    to misdirect the correct subject.

    I just keep thinking of Schrodinger's cat.
    Out of the silent planet
    Come the demons of creation

    Nice thinking outside the box! This is close as some have proposed the cat to explain the subject of this riddle.

    It's all about our perception of one's personal reality.

    A movie about the martyr and saint was made.

    I might be stepping outside my own knowledge base with this riddle. I'm not Sidney Freedman.

    I'm thinking "solipsism", but that doesn't capture the idea of misperception you've hinted at.

    Spoiler:
    Confirmation bias?


    (Spoilerized as I just read a request in another thread to not reveal guesses to let others play).
