This is a quote by spellbound from another topic but im going to use this to expound on the concept of reality or what we think reality is. People tend to think reality is the truth forgetting lies (essentially falsehood or make believe or creation in the mind) are also reality. There are multiple levels or dimensions of reality affecting eachother. Case in point, misinformation, rumors, beliefs, feelings, bias, even outright lies are acted on all the time producing a timeline of events that wouldnt otherwise occur. The lie can become the truth also. It can be as simple as when one believes something even by misinformation or misunderstanding and acts on it creating tangible ripple effects. We think the truth is what causes events but lies and deception do just as much to the point even if discovered, the effects are already done etc. Think about this fine point of 'reality' or 'truth'. Think about how people have acted out on some belief or rumor, even if with regrets later its already done etc. Think about how some are favored or not depending on perception or even falsehood but the point is the effects will be real even if based on a false premise. This applies to many scenarios. This is why reality is so 'unreal' or 'crazy' in some respects and often based on quite hallucinatory ideas or misinformation or ignorance. Think about the duality of lies and truth coexisting to affect reality. So there is a fine line in the larger scheme of life between imagination and hardcore reality as even hardcore reality events can be induced by imagination or simply beliefs, or ignorance and even total knowing deception. You would think it shouldnt be allowed to but its like an unfortunate paradox. The paradox being the truth is or was the truth but it doesnt always win out. Strange isnt it? Reality is like one giant hallucination in many ways as we have to wonder is so creation or the creative so therefore more relative than as concrete as we might assume.
