Yes, it can be argued "What is Real", how do we distinguish between "realities"?
These are cool things to contemplate.
I can make a claim that next to me now, there is a red coffee mug with a picture of a white cat. And it is real. But for you, it is just a claim made by someone online. So my real may not be your real. And maybe many light years away, a planet is just about to explode, would be real as heck to the possible inhabitants, but we here wouldn't ever even know about it.
What if i was the only person on this planet? would anything be real, or just subjective views of things, filtered by, and limited by, own understanding of them

I love second hand shopping! I have purchased some amazing things throughout the years that would have cost a fortune had I bought them new. Some second hand shops carry new items as well.
It's like a treasure hunt and you never know what you're going to find.

Reality is just an illusion caused by a lack of alcohol! J/K
Or Does human thought literally create the matter that we perceive as real?
Hmmmm Or did I make this up?
When you fire a single photon (one particle of light) towards an optical device with two tiny slits in it... light travels through BOTH slits!?!? How can one particle go through both? 2 SLIT Single Photon Experiment
Are we just part of some other civilisation's computer generated experiment (like a "Matrix" scenario)?
GLITCH in The MATRIX Stories anyone?
What is real and what is not?
Fecked if I know!
