He is correct in stating that NO-ONE has a grip on reality. There is not a single being walking this planet of, Earthly origin anyway, that can claim to know the "truth" of what is real and what is not.
Personally I think it would be an act of unimaginable EGO and an obvious lack of understanding to propose that "one" knows what is real and what is fake!
In the observable universe (or at least what we have observed so far...Hubble...Chandra..Etc) we can peer some 14 BILLION years back into time (the light we see is very very old) at what we believe is the dawn of the universe...but then again what do we know? We have estimated that there are at least 100 Billion Galaxies within the observable range and that the average Galaxy is comprised of between 100 and 300 Billion stars (just like our own Sun). Allready the numbers are staggering. Then throw in an average of 5 planets around each star...and well there you have it! Trillions upon trillions of worlds within the observable universe.
To anyone who believes that we are alone I say this, you need to broaden your mind and then re-take MATH 101.
Perhaps there is hope for you yet!
