Mark my words:
Everything that is real, is real because your mind knows its real.
Your experience of reality is based on the concept behind that sentence.
Anything is possible.
Lets say a blind and deaf man was born in a huge space, without walls, and live there until the age of 20.
You bring this man into your room. (If you had a way to) Tell him to cross from point A to point B which are separated by a WALL.
What would happen next was - You see the man bang his head and body into the wall (Because god damn, it's a wall!) trying to cross from A to B. But
if you had a way of asking that man what happened he would tell you that nothing happened and he is at point B.
Your mind, based on 100% KNOWLEDGE(Not assumptions, not a 99.9% beliefs), KNOWS that a man cannot pass through a solid wall. But the blind & deaf man
has never known walls, he was raised in a non-walled space, he never experienced walls, he doesn't know there can be a such thing.
(there is a far deeper explanation about that concept)
So, this question should not be asked the way you asked, in my opinion.
Besides, how can you tell me that dreams aren't real? Why, because you are a sleep? How can you know that your REAL life experience is not in
a mental state, such as a dream, but is the experience of the physical and the primitive world?
How can you know that reality has to do something with a physical state, rather than the mental one?
Trust me in one thing, Physicality is metaphysical in the bottom line. Therefor the mental and the physical states are ALWAYS connected.
(Please, don't hurry with this.)
Imagine yourself in front of your fridge. Imagine taking out a Red, Juicy, Tasty Good Looking apple from the fridge. Touch it, feel it's coldness,
know how tasty it is. Now take a bite of that apple. Chew it slowly. Feel the sweet, cold, juicy taste in your mouth as you chew it.
If you have done the above in the proper way, your mouth began watering.
Now let me ask you this:
How can something as metaphysical as the imagination, create a physical watering reaction?
If you understood my post, then you will answer that question yourself.
