I could be living in a matrix where my brain is hooked to a computer and everything takes place in my mind...but that does not mean I would not feel "physical" pain. Tell me that pain does not exist, and I will insist it does. In such a scenario, though, it would not, in "reality". My "reality" is what I personally experience. My pains and joys and fears would be no less "real".
All each of us can go by is our own experience and beliefs, for those bring about whatever is "real" to us, individually. Our perceptions are our reality...until another "reality" crashes our party.
You and i disagree on certain levels.
But....you are a free thinker and eloquent writer. I appreciate that.
Thank you, Carla. :)
It's better to be smart and consider the long-term consequences.
Be unsure all you want, but defending a stance that has no logical outcome besides the negative is just stupid.
This, I know. : )
Are you sure?
To be fair, I'm using my own logic. Soooo... yes?
Is this still my dream?
The piece of watermelon I just ate was delicious.
Where is the uncertainty?
And I suppose it was of great significance to this victim of the Dresden firebombing that what she thought she knew was happening to her ultimately depended on something she couldn't be sure of. Maybe she was just a character in a hyper-dimensional video game.
You, ma'am, have a very interesting concept of comfort. Most people I know do not particularly enjoy being unsure. Many act as if they are (sure) just to ease the discomfort.
And maybe it would have eased her discomfort to act as if she was sure it was just a video game?
