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?


What you've just described is very similar to "The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening" for Gameboy...Honestly though, real or no, I'd enjoy it while I was still here in this dream world lol..

Maybe that's what death is like? Only an awakening to a greater world than ours.

If there's the one game I suck at, despite playing it every single day, it's Life.

It's been a while since I played Life and I'm not that good at it. That says something doesn't it?

Do you feel happy when you're with people you cherish? Do you feel that weird sensation when you're around the person you like? Do you feel the pain of getting punched in the face?

I certainly do and they feel real to me.

Some believe we are the bacterias of another lifeform, which I thought was mind blowingly interesting

What if you die all the time and keep respawning? Wouldn't PrinceJudar be able to say she loses all the time if that's the case? You die/lose, respawn, and start the game over again.

The world certainly isn't a figment of my imagination, as I have none. If it were, we'd all just be stickmen reenacting the plot of Ocarina of Time over and over again for eternity.

If one person's accurate, then nobody's accurate, but if everybody's accurate, than nobody is.
Hmmmm…


Everyone's perception is accurate from their own point of view.
Like how I say Pizza is better with lots of tobasco and because I'm eating it, I know this to be true, but you may say otherwise.
or
Everyone is incapable of experiencing the real world and is limited to what the individual cannotice
Like How I'm colorblind and you may not be.

The answer is NO, this isn't real.
Humans can only experience a faint outline of the real world.


There's an Buddhist koan that explains that even the notion of consciousness and thought are false. Our brains simply exist at the moment, and each moment we have the memory of the previous moment (and thus, our memories from the moment before that, and so on). This creates the illusion of continuity, wherein in reality, "we" doesn't exist, only a series of moments.
