Reality? Things that we can, to the best of our knowledge, figure out and define
by ways of
Using this particular method we cannot include personal beliefs, personal
opinions or theory’s because these things cannot be easily confirmed. Though
are essential in keeping our minds open, we should always have
areas of research that stick to what definitions we know using the knowledge
that we can confirm. This will help minimize confusion and misunderstandings.
You don't have to know Physics
or know the inner workings of an
atom to help explain Reality, because the deeper you go, the farther away you
will become to what is known. Not to say that these journeys are a waste of
time. On the contrary we should always have as many people looking at as many
possibilities as we can. Multiple
should never be ignored. And
of course you can never be fully aware of everything that there is in this
world. But at the least you should try to be
aware of as many things as possible
, and at the
same time, confirm these things with as many people as possible. So the first
thing to do is to define what criteria will be used to measure reality. Then get
as many people you can to answer theses questions and thus end up with some kind
of consensus for a basic definition for the word reality. Reality is best
understood using some form of confirmation. Do you see what I see? Do you
understand the way I understand? We cannot use one set of eyes to explain
Reality. It’s not “Will it still be there if I’m not there to look at it?” Of
course it will be. What do you think? You’re the only one who’s looking?
And after all that, Reality is something that is
continually evolving, so what might be considered reality today may not be
reality tomorrow. Reality is not always a constant or is reality something that
you can always be
of. Are there two realities?
It's like putting a photograph in front of a video surveillance
camera so that the person looking at the video monitor thinks they are

Kids and adults spend way too much time living in
their own personal fantasy world
do Reality. And the reason is that people are not even
when they are in a
fantasy world, because they have not yet totally defined what reality is.
So the difference between reality and fantasy is blurred. You need to
define these two things. And you need to practice awareness. You also need

keep learning and experiencing
Reality is a word to describe what is, and what may happen in the future. Humans
have many methods for
what is, and what might happen. Reality was here before humans existed, because
cause and effect
has been measured in fossils of life forms predating
humans. Don't confuse
with reality. Because just being aware does not mean that you
are living in reality. And don't think that you know what reality is, because
reality for humans is based on what we have learned so far about our reality. So
human reality is evolving and expanding as we learn more, thus reality will
never stay totally the same for humans. Though reality looks weird and
unpredictable at times, we know that
the more we learn
about reality, the less weird reality becomes, and the
more predictable reality becomes. No matter how many
that you can perceive, or what
you use to compare things too, you are only measuring reality,
you are not totally defining what reality is. Even though there are an infinite
amount of possibilities, this does not stop humans from using the knowledge that
we have learned so far to measure what reality is today. And when we can confirm
our reality with other people, we know that everything is not just in our minds.
People who are
blind or deaf
still have similar realities to people who can see and hear.
This is because humans have other methods for measuring reality, like using
touch, taste, smell and feelings, as well as having other people helping them
measure reality. So everyone has the ability to learn, and thus, everyone has
other ways of constructing a reality. Even though each person experiences
reality differently from one person to the next, this does not change the
reality of the situation. Reality is learning about what our current state is.
You can pretend that you don't live in reality, but that does not change
reality, it only changes how you experience reality. We don't change reality, We
change, as we learn more about what our reality is at this current time, but not
necessarily what reality will be like tomorrow. Reality is learning, learning is
reality. You can say that we can change reality, but we are not changing
reality, we are changing what we have learned about what reality is, or what
it's going to be. When we die, reality will still be here. Because when we see
other people die, this does not change reality. It may change our experience
with reality, but it will not change reality as a whole. Reality is learning,
learning is reality.

When we use the word reality,
we are not 100 percent defining something
, because nothing is 100
percent definitive, and there is no full 100 percent guarantee for complete
accuracy. But in order to make things easy and less complicated, we use
as a tool to make communication more effective and more efficient.
You can still get philosophical about reality if you want, but only when it's
necessary. If we want to have a mutual understanding, we need to use a universal
definition that helps us communicate. We are not saying that this particular
definition is definitive and that there are no other variations, because there
are other variations, but we only need them for certain situations when someone
has difficulty understanding, or wants to express a concern, or, when new
knowledge and information has been discovered that would require us to update
our definition of Reality, or any other word for that matter.

Allegory of the Cave
describes a gathering
of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave
all of their lives,
facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall from
things passing in front of a fire behind them, and they begin to give
names to these shadows. The shadows are as close as the prisoners get to
viewing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner
who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the
wall do not make up reality at all, for he can perceive the true form of
reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners. This idea was presented by the Greek philosopher
in his work
the Republic (514a–520a).
Blind Men and an Elephant
is a story of a group of blind men, who have
never come across an elephant before and who learn and conceptualize what
the elephant is like by touching it. Each blind man feels a different part
of the elephant body, but only one part, such as the side or the tusk.
They then describe the elephant based on their
descriptions are in complete disagreement on what an elephant is. In some
versions, they come to suspect that the other person is dishonest and they
come to blows. The moral of the parable
is that humans have a tendency to project their partial experiences as the
whole truth, ignore other people's partial experiences, and one should
consider that one may be partially right and may have partial information.

Man with the X-ray Eyes
is a 1963 independently made color science
fiction-horror film, where Dr. Xavier develops eye drops intended to
increase the range of human vision, allowing one to see beyond the
"visible" spectrum into the ultraviolet and x-ray wavelengths and beyond.
Believing that testing on animals and volunteers will produce uselessly
subjective observations, he tests the drops on himself. Initially, Xavier
discovers that he can see through people's clothing, and he uses his
vision to save a young girl whose medical problem was misdiagnosed. Over
time and with continued use of the drops, Xavier's visual capacity
increases and his ability to control it decreases. Eventually, he can no
longer see the world in human terms, but only in forms of lights and
textures that his brain is unable to fully comprehend. Even closing his
eyes brings no relief from the darkness in his increasingly frightening
world, as he can now see through his closed eyelids. After accidentally
killing a friend, Xavier goes on the run, using his x-ray vision first to
work in a carnival, and then to win at gambling in a Las Vegas casino.
Xavier's eyes are altered along with his vision: first they become black
and gold, and then entirely black. To hide his startling appearance, he
wears dark wrap-around sunglasses at all times. Leaving Las Vegas, Xavier
drives out into the desert and wanders into a religious tent revival. He
tells the evangelist that he is beginning to see things at the edges of
the universe, including an "eye that sees us all" in the center of the
universe. The pastor replies that what he sees is "sin and the devil" and
quotes the Biblical verse, "If thine eye offends thee...pluck it out!"
Xavier chooses to blind himself rather than continuing to see anything
