Noun: The world or the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them: "he refuses to face reality".
A thing that is actually experienced or seen, esp. when this is grim or problematic: "the harsh realities of life".
Who has to experience or see something to make it a reality to you? I know that people have seen what they claim to be ghosts so does that mean thats a reality to me? I dunno. So is reality just something we have seen or experienced ourselves? What if our minds experience something that isn't real, hallucinations? thats something we experience. so in sight, does reality have to be something that more than one person has seen? What abous mass hysteria? foly eu deux? does that make our individual feelings unrealistic cuz its only us that feel them in that unique way?
In 'reality' do we ever really know whats real and whats not? just because something has been experienced by a lot of people doesnt make it real.... or does it?
