Pretty damn real!

Marchofthefox's avatar

This is a really good question.
Its real, sadly but it can be deceiving.
You have to be smart enough to decipher wrong from right.

So real it can kill you lol. I was thinking today about how easily I could injure or kill someone and myself by simply pressing my foot down 2 inches on my gas pedal. We’re fragile and we have to be careful : )

Reality is just an illusion, but the illusion is real.

A is A.
A thing is what it is.It cannot be A and B at the same time.
Existence exists.
Anything outside of existence by definition,does not exist.
Now that’s fucking real. ;)

Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Spoon boy: Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

To paraphrase Philip K. Dick; If you stop believing in it, and it’s still there, that’s Reality

Philip K. Dick was such a visionary, and the genius behind Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, Vulcan’s Hammer, and so many other great works, thanks for mentioning him. But I think reality is simultaneously both more and less than his quote suggests. Reality transcends the individual, which isn’t evident in his quote, yet it is bent and shaped by human experience, which he also doesn’t allude to. Consensus shapes reality, rather we like it or not. If everyone agrees the bush era was wonderful, for instance, that becomes the reality, like it or not.
