​Both books are made of atoms, mostly hydrogen carbon and oxygen, and
science can not tell the difference between one atom of the same element
and another. So if in the middle of the night I exchanged your book with
one from a galaxy far far ​away how could you do what science can not and
detect a difference the next morning?
