No way! I've fallen down pits enough times to know that's not true.
BUT IT IS INDEED TRUE. THERE IS NO GRAVITY TO PULL YOU DOWN, YOU FALL DOWN ALL BY YOURSELF.

SPRITES' PHYSICS ARE PURELY PERSONAL. YOU FALL NOT BECAUSE THERE IS AN EXTERNAL THING CALLED "GRAVITY," BUT BECAUSE IT'S PART OF YOUR PROGRAMMING TO FALL.

THE CYBERWORLD IS ESSENTIALLY PHYSICSLESS. THE REASON A SHARED PHYSICS SEEMS TO EXIST IS BECAUSE MOST SPRITES HAVE SIMILAR PROGRAMMING - THEY "FALL" WHEN THERE IS NOTHING BENEATH THEM.
