    Smile Why the Mind Deceives the I?

    The newspaper boy woke me up.
    Why?
    Eventually I did not believe the lie.

    I believed it first. I almost slept on.
    My first memory was I was awake when the newspaper boy came.
    I was not mad, therefore I could sleep again.
    The lie was the memory.
    The memory was but a dream.

    A pre set dream to suit the occasion.
    Pure problem solving.

    If the newspaper boy wakes me up I get mad.
    If I get mad I cannot sleep on.
    If I think the newspaper boy did not wake me up I do not get mad.
    Therefore the mind set in a false memory.
    It was a memory of a waking up process.
    The memory ends in the coming of the newspaper boy.

    Reality was different.
    It often is from what we think it is.
    Memories are tricks played by the mind.
    Are there true, accurate memories?
    No.

    Some memories are originally dreams.
    Some memories are based on real events.
    Only on recalling them they become twisted.
    They become interpretations.
    In the last phase, dreams.

    Ask two people describe the same event.
    The judges in the court room believe some people are lying and some are telling the truth.
    They are all lying.
    Then the memory of the judge starts working.
    The pieces are reordered, interpreted, confused, twisted.
    Therefore there is a person who writes down the words of the witnesses.

    There is no such person out of courtroom, though.

    I remember being sick at my grandparents when I was a baby.

    Reality is an illusion.
    We see what we want to see, and call it reality.

    Reality isn't an illusion. It's that thinking what we know about reality is all there is to know is an illusion.

    Our perception of reality is but a small window to the universe. Doesn't mean the window isn't there.

    Hi Fluffster,

    (Fluffster, I like that nick.)

    The reason reality is an illusion is people accept the word "reality" to be singular in nature.

    Take vertigo for example.
    The medical definition of vertigo is: The illusion of motion.

    To experience the floor dropping beneath you, or the room swinging, may be an illusion by definition,
    but is a concrete "reality" to the person dealing with it.

    Our brain is what creates its version of reality.
    That's why I always laugh when people say, "What is the reality of the situation?"

    As if there is only one reality . . .

    Well, I don't disagree entirely with you, but we do know there is one absolute reality, we also know we could never grasp or understand that reality in its entirety. Because that would require some form of omni-sense, which we do not have. But we do know logically, that fractions of the reality we perceive can be logically explained and therefor considered real. And an integral part of that absolute reality.

    Whilest illusion is something that we see that isn't really there. An illusion is our mind believing something is real, whilest in reality, it is different then how we perceive it.

    There's subtle differences that makes it impossible for reality to be an illusion.

    However, I'm certain there are people who perceive reality in such an illogical way, that one could say their reality is in fact just an illusion.
