Is it? How do you know you're not just dreaming about browsing the forums right now? How can we tell these forums even exist? The whole world you see could be an illusion. When are we going to wake up from this dream world? The sounds you hear, the objects you touch, the odors you smell, the flavors you taste, the sights you see. Everything around you is false. What if your real body is in a lab where you've been put to sleep all your life? The whole world is a dried up old rock like Mars and humanity doesn't exist. What if your real self outside this dream world is different from how you see yourself in the mirror?



Or maybe everything is fine and this is in fact reality.

But how can you be sure that your perception of reality is accurate?

If this is hell, it's a lot nicer than I thought it'd-





Nope. Nevermind.

"There was the story of the Chinese philosopher who once fell asleep and dreamed he was a butterfly...And when he woke up the next morning, he said 'Was I a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or am I a butterfly dreaming I am a man?'"
"Either way, get ready with the net."

I'm sorry to disappoint the people who thought this thread would be about Freddie Mercury. Did Freddie Mercury really exist, though? You've never met the guy. His very existence could be a practical joke that the whole world is playing on you. His music is actually ancient music that the gods of another dimension listen to and the sounds just happened to slip into your mind. This "Freddie Mercury" person was created to help explain where that music was coming from.




Open your eyes. Look up to the sky and see.

If one person's perception of reality is "accurate", wouldn't that automatically render everyone else's perception of reality inaccurate?
If one person's accurate, then nobody's accurate, but if everybody's accurate, than nobody is.
Hmmmm…

There's no way to tell. We could be just The Sims or unicorn's poop.

Like the Chinese proverb goes, "We are but frogs in a well".
