WHAT IS REALITY ???

There is an objective reality out there, but we view it through the spectacles of our beliefs, attitudes, and values. ~David G. Myers

Objectivity has about as much substance as the emperor’s new clothes. ~Connie Miller

How do we know that the sky is not green and we are all color-blind? ~Author Unknown

There are no facts, only interpretations. ~Friedrich Nietzsche

What is reality anyway! It’s nothing but a collective hunch. ~Jane Wagner

What was once called the objective world is a sort of Rorschach ink blot, into which each culture, each system of science and religion, each type of personality, reads a meaning only remotely derived from the shape and color of the blot itself. ~Lewis Mumford

Humankind cannot bear very much reality. ~T.S. Eliot

Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion. ~Democritus

What we call reality is an agreement that people have arrived at to make life more livable. ~Louise Nevelson

All the mind’s activity is easy if it is not subjected to reality. ~Marcel Proust

Reality is a palette that humans paint on to let themselves sleep better at night. ~Author Unknown

After you’ve heard two eyewitness accounts of an auto accident, you begin to worry about history. ~Author Unknown

Reality is the leading cause of stress amongst those in touch with it. ~Jane Wagner

  1. Hi Elisa,

    Thanks for your stimulating comment !

    As you probably know in quantum physics there are no nouns in the universe but instead everything is a verb or part of an inseparable FLOW…we were conditioned to believe we are a separate person who can determine our behavior or we will be labeled as undesirable…actually our consciouness is simply a point in the social flow…there is experience but there is no separate experiencer who is responsible or control the experience…so what is one to do ?…my personal preference is to turn over on my back and float with the FLOW.

  2. In all of this there are those that use this ‘fancy’ talk as a way to escape themselves and responsibility or accountability. I watch people connecting these dots, pleasurable dots at that, and trying very hard to meet the definition of schizophrenia. It amazes me the shock of those who look at the DSM and realize the parallels to the everything is a dream shpeel. I like looking at the complete circle of the discussion of reality. Has reality become an experience, a feeling, instead of a noun?
