"Reality" is consensus, however, proving reality is impossible because each of the 5 senses can be deceived.

we are a 4D being looking at 2D information projected in 3D world. So there may be errors....


But I repeat myself, or you have Deja vu!!

In The Beginning God Created The Matrix (Heavens & Earth)

I.E.: the fabric of time-space in which we Garden Dwellers were supposed to create landscapes/biospheres/Worlds for the purpose of transforming the sterile & elemental universe into an organic/living/self-sustaining Universe of connected 'Oasis'

I was an idiot kid I took a bus one time into another town for the first time. Wow all this is just independently here. Not looking out the windows of my parents car. It's not on a track or a computer simulation or painting . They have flight simulators where you see a video game of flying a plane. First flight looking outside is that just animation going by like roadrunner or is that "the real". This place is like Eden or Zion , paradise. I am not the only person alive and it's all my show done by aliens or robots or God . The matrix is an idea but not all of reality.

I think they were trying to do a philosophical proof . I read this whole thread and it was pissing me off. I could've Wikipedia d the mention, but I choose not to. Reality just go outside you don't have to be a poet.

No one is thinking.
No one is acting.


I'd hate to be behind you at a cafe after you ordered your coffee. I'd be waiting forever as you quote to the barista demanding payment.

"Define Reality"

We work with the tools we have in the box.


Perspective defines reality.

And ours is so very, very limited.

Reality is now , what has passed is a memory so fiction and what is to come may never come , reality is what you perceive at this moment.

It's like asking what gravity is.

Far as we can determine, and as you know, it's a force, but is it a particle or a wave?

Reality i suppose is even more complicated, as it's most lightly a collection of forces, interacting with one another in space-time, in ways we have yet to fully realize or understand, at both the macro and quantum levels, nevermind everwhere else in between.

Reality is apparently an 11-dimensional beast.

And us being rather 3 dimensional, 4 dimensional at a push, simply don't have the mental capacity nor tools to understand the totality of it all.

But from our very limited perspective reality would seem to be nothing more than a short-lived burst of photons.

Not that it's not nice to ponder all the same.

I am sorry for detailing this thread. You know the people on this site use search engines and have battle of the intellectual s. The concept of the matrix was based on life and reality. I was reading this thread and thought of some pre matrix ideas. Movies like Dark City and Vanilla Sky tackle the idea that not everything is what it seems. I have schizophrenia and spent years in a waking dream. I read about lucid dreaming and doing reality tests to see if your awake or in a dream. I am sorry I didn't explain myself in first post. The thin ki ng reality is an illusion or delusion or there is a deeper meaning is popular and sorry I dismissed it. My first lucid dream I realized I was dreaming was in a danger room ( x men ) of psych I was running on a treadmill and started floating as i was running then realized I could do anything and imagined a woman and started fooling around.

What about the recollection of a past event, that is happening in the now?
(Not the past event, but the thinking of it in the present.)

Also: not a planned future supposed event: but the engaging in the thought of it, in the now?

Look at it this way mate, and i suffer from a few mental ailments myself, PTSD being one of them.

To be sane in an insane world is sheer lunacy in itself, nevermind downright counterproductive.

That being said, when we lose our rather tenuous grip on what we imagine to be reality bad things tend to happen.

Anchors, or so it seems are rather important if not somewhat limiting to our perspective.

Nietzsche said " if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you."

But "There be dragons there" and then some, and dragons are interesting.

Agreed.

Everyone is looking for reality.......
