    We know that the world is real through science. Every time we create and test a hypothesis, we find out a little more whether the world is real or not. If there's no way to ever distinguish between what would be real and what may be a dream world then there is no difference, and what may be a dream world is in fact real.

    Agent@5:

    We have as many people glued harder to existentialism than we have people who profess Christianity. If we don't expect them to "look past" existentialism (whatever that means), why should we expect other people to look past their philosophies. Granted, typing a message in big blue flashing letters may be a bit over the top, but let people have their say, especially if you're not going to add anything to the thread but a 6-word complaint of another person's post.

    THE WORLD HAS TO BE REAL OR ELSE WE'D BE DEAD. PERIOD. END OF QUESTION. REALITY IS NOT A FREAKING ILLUSION. IF IT IS ITS A DAMN SELF CONSISTANT ONE AND ONE THAT CAN MAINTAIN LIFE. AND WHAT DIFFERECE DOES IT MAKE ANYWAY?

    Sorry I just get sick of this arguement sometimes don't mind me

    For an interesting point of view: check the "test" thread. It is about a movie I saw. And about buddhism

    For views on the connection between science, reality and religion, check the "down with religion" thread.

    I would and HAVE said the same thing to people who are not prepared to accept another perspectove. I am not saying they should not have an opinion, all I am saying is that being a little more liberal with your thoughts will encourgae a more open and stimulating flow of thoughts, instead of just preaching the same ideas over an over. I ask him a question, if he is preapared to do that. Thats valid enough. Sometimes I feel a short msg, gettig straight to the point, is more effecient than a long drawn out essay, thus you have my six letter post. Ok

    "I don't know and I don't care"

    That's a good attitude on a philosophy board!

    It doesn't matter whether this world is "real" or illusory. What other choice do we have but to accept our experience as real? If you determined that your life was a dream from which you couldn't wake, what difference would it make?

    gonj,

    Is this world real? How do we all know this world we see isn't just a dream? And why are we here?
    Depends on your awareness...
    Most people do not control their lifes but let their lifes control them. If they let their lifes control them, they are dreaming. Their web of beliefs creates their actions and reactions. They are controled by their beliefs, the beliefs that they, themselves, created...

    Awareness... when you dream, do you know that you are dreaming? Usually not... so how can you know that this is not a dream...? Perhaps it's all on the mind... and the only Truth is beyond the mind... it can be explained rationally...

    Why are you here? Don't worry about it... just have fun...
    If you keep thinking about this your life will pass through you and you won't even notice... Just live it. Plain and simple.

    I am always, always aware it is a dream. Don't remember the last time I wasn't.

    The real question is why do people even consider crap like the world is an illusion. The only arguement they ever use is that i can never know that im not dreaming. The fact is i do know im not dreaming. So do the people posing the stupid question. NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES SOMEONE SAYS THAT THE WORLD IS NOT REAL NOBODY BELIEVES IT. IT IS A STUPID POINT. NOBODY ACTS AS IF THE WORLD IS AN ILLUSION.

    Truthseeker,

    How many dreams have you had that are self consistant enough to be like this world? How many of your dreams are a continuation of your last one? How well does your memory function when your dreaming? Do your dreams take an extremely irrational and more or less random path? Can you read in a dream? (proabally not a good test but i know that i can't)

    It is easy to tell this isn't a fucking dream.

    Neutrino_Albatros,

    What do you mean...?

    How many of your dreams are a continuation of your last one?
    That's a little hard to happen... but they all have me...

    How well does your memory function when your dreaming?
    Well enough to remember it...

    Do your dreams take an extremely irrational and more or less random path?
    Sometimes yes... sometimes no...

    Can you read in a dream?
    I believe so...
