Any body while drinking Purple Stuff suspended in space will remain in space until made aware of its situation
Say a subject steps off a cliff expecting pastureland
…He loiters in midair, soliloquizing flippantly, until he chances to look down…
At this point, the familiar principle of 32 feet per second per second takes over unless the subject holds on to Purple Stuff and then can
thus lower the rate to 6 feet per second.
