Is space and the universe real or is it all just a big psy-op? I sometimes tend to think we're not being told the whole story

a reply to: lavatrance Hopefully we are not living in a Truman Show of sorts and when I look up into the sky at night the twinkling stars are real... and vast... there is something peaceful about the night sky and contemplating it's majesty.
I'm curious as to what makes you question the reality of the universe... something strange happen?

Real.

You've probably not. Unless you've been told the McDonalds secret sauce recipe?

Hey! I just posted a serious post
and asked a real question with no humor involved!
Hope you don't go away!

a reply to: ToxicRocker Hi there, first you can post reply's five times... say the secret words and spin in a circle clockwise three times... just kidding welcome to ATS!
Post five reply's in various threads and then go to the introductions forum and you can start a thread there by introducing yourself and then you can start threads in most of the forums.

You must post five times before you can make a thread, so comment in four other threads and then you goto forums and you pick the appropriate forum and you will see a new topic button after clicking the appropriate forum press new topic and start writing, it used to be twenty posts but they changed it to five so four more posts to go and you are good.

Go to the forums, choose the sub-forum you think fits best, on the right is a button with a plus sign, new topic.

Aren't we a cute help full bunch?

Seriously? You make a thread (like almost all of your threads) not respecting the content limit, which asks you to post a certain amount, and yet you still post below that, and then the subject is a vague and heavily trafficked philosophical concept, that spans from Plato's allegory of the cave, to the brain in a vat thought experiment, Ect. It's just that I think you are taking ATS for a ride with this content, and that it's intentionally silly, and so I respond in kind, btw notice threads that are not silly and that respect the content limit, we all happily engage and often have very deep and meaningful conversations.

Brutally honest but I do have to agree.
We need more content from you Lavatrance!
I feel like I've got two pieces of bread... but no sandwich and I know you have posted more substantially before.
All I would like to know is... what makes you feel the universe is not real?.. that's just me though and I hope you keep posting, Lavatrance.

Yes, it's real. Hundreds of years of science and philosophy show that.

I think this has more to do with your OP than anything else.
People have told you time and time again that more substance would be appreciated in your posts rather than a single question, and you refuse to do so.

I'm not sure about everyone else (actually, I AM sure. Because it's been mentioned before!), but I, as a lurker, find your posts terribly lacking and definitely worthy of the "lolz" that get thrust upon you.


Is space and the universe real?


With my limited, non-scientific, rather "layman" knowledge, I believe that space and the universe IS real. I have no personal proof or claims to back up my beliefs, so, I'll stop there.

Well its hard to take a two liner OP with no links at any other material seriously. This isn't twitter or Facebook. If you want serious discussion, write a serious thread. I'm not saying your not sincere, just not very serious. Try committing a little more time, thought and substance and the thread just might blossom into a beautiful discussion.

100%

Many threads authored by Lavatrance lack substance. Not all, but a decent amount. A good example is his previous one on Anonymous. He asked if it was just a controlled opposition, citing a Youtube video - yet he never shared that video. It's good to discuss things, but it is difficult when there isn't much to talk about.

Lavatrance, don't take this as criticism, but if you put more effort into some of these posts, people will tend to put more effort into their responses. We're all hear to learn and discuss interesting topics, and small ones like this don't contribute much to the site.

Cheers.

Nothing is real, space is full of nothing, something is also real, space is full of something

Why do people keep questioning reality lately? Seems pretty damned real to me.

You are entitled to your opinion. But you know what Descartes said (more or less); "I think therefore I am."

Take it a step further, "I think not..."

You're going to get philosophical at this hour when I haven' slept yet? The world is still real. It's real I tell you! Says the elf.
