What do you believe is real and what do you believe is a dream?

    It's been said that life is but a dream. So is it real? Is it tangible or is it all an illusion?
    Curious what you think and why?

      Philosophically there is no way to know.  We may all be a computer program, we may all be only a dream creation of a sleeping or deranged mind, we may be a moving art display created by some ET for the amusement of others.  We cannot know.

      But what do I think?  I am unable to conceive of anything that might show any of those scenarios to be truth.  I am also unable to conceive of anything in any of them that would harm or benefit me if true.  There is thus no reason to think about it at all outside of a curious and imaginative moment of playing the "what if" fantasy game - it can sometimes be fun to stretch our imagination but ultimately has no value outside of entertainment.

        Thank you for sharing your opinion!!! I never thought about the ET factor, interesting. Thanks.

      It doesn't matter.  This is all I have so I will engage with it.
