"...reality trumps all belief systems: what you believe is not nearly so important as what is real." - Derrick Jensen
This quote got me thinking. How do we define what is real? I've always wondered about that. We say that the sky is blue, because the human brain interprets the color that way. But how do we know that the sky really isn't a shade of magenta? How would we ever know? Thanks to advances in since, we now know that nothing in the universe is solid. Everything is made up of energy. So if nothing is truly solid, how can I pick up a pen or walk on the ground? How is it that we are all not floating in space somewhere? And what is reality, anyway? If reality is nothing more than perception, then how can there even be a such thing, since every single organism's perception is different? Who then, gets to define what reality is? Well that's my random insanity for today. Hope this got you thinking too
