Amen. It's the fire that tempers us and makes us stronger.

Someone who has been through so much is in a completely different state of mind. They don't have the same worries and fears anymore, that many people have.

Reality is two perfectly stainless mirrors facing each other. Both are flat and have no true form purely in and of themseves, yet their interaction creates the illusion of infinite depth. Give one or both a slight twist and endless patterns ripple down the hall of infinity, growing in complexity and perplexity as they expand and interact with each other. Yet at the end of the day, its only two mirrors...or perhaps even one mirror bent so its two ends can reflect each other. Come and play!

Yes indeed
I would like to add that I see everything in this reality as simply
A Valley of chrome; where in essence we just reflect each other at the end of the day

Simple
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away .

Isn't quantum physics puzzled over the observation that when you stop observing particles, they become waves of posibilities? In other words, your reality disapears when it's not observed, weather you believe it to be there or not.

just wanted to throw that one in

wow, that's a lot to read, with little time to read it. honestly, i don't have the time to read all that right now, and i have a bad memory. so if i try to break it up into days, i'll forget what i read the day before. can you give a semi-decent sized summary?

It's not a read, it's a 'watch'

that link I posted will lead you to a series of video's to watch.

On this topic, there really isn't a 'short version' so if you want to know more then watch them when you have the time, I'm sure you'll find it worth it.

what does it involve? i tried watching a little bit of it (the first one) and i didn't get it. i got bored real quick, and shut it off. i really don't get the point of them

Nice one. I agree.

But it's naughty of you not to give credit where credit is due: the man who said that first was every paranoiac's favourite science-fiction writer, Philip K. Dick.

On a different note, subatomic particles don't become waves of possibilities when nobody's looking. Slight misunderstanding of the wave function there.

Quantum uncertainty does not call the reality of our perceptions into question; it does, however, suggest that some of our inferences from those perceptions may not be valid. But that is something quite common in the history of knowledge--it was once thought that Earth was at the centre of the universe, for example.

As to the nature of reality, I see absolutely no reason to deny that it is what my senses (suitably augmented as required) tell me it is. Of course, it could just be a dream I'm dreaming; but then that dream is my reality. I embrace and believe in reality as it manifests itself to the kind of being I am. That's all the reality anyone needs.
