Real life
From LucidWiki


Real life (often abbreviated to RL), or the real world, is the reality we perceive when we are awake, as opposed to the reality that is projected in our dreams. There are many differences between the real world and the dream world, which can be used when finding dream signs or performing reality checks. As human beings, we are destined to walk this world until we inevitably die.

Speculation


Quote:
There are those who have created theories about the reality we live in, and whether it is truly real. Many have contemplated them as only fancies of the mind, but there are those who believe in them, which can often lead to mental disorders such as schizophrenia.

A common theory put forward by those in the lucid dreaming community is that the reality we live in is in fact just one long dream, and that another 'true' reality lies beneath it. Another theory is that we are living in a computer simulation, built by a more advanced race of humans, an alien race, or an artifical intelligence as featured in The Matrix trilogy.

Its seems a bit , well nonsensical in parts to me ....

I think the first part is society's generally accepted view on real life, so in that sense it is accurate.

When you are on a lucid dreaming forum, you tend to get a lot of non-traditional views, so I think you will find a good amount of people who disagree here.

Again with this stuff?

I believe that this either:

a) Is reality. Period. You must be a supercomputer for this to be the product of your mind.

b) This is a simulated reality.

I firmly don't believe this is a dream, also as explained in the "this is a dream right now" topic. It is too precise and stable to be a dream.

Unless it is some other kind of "dream", unlike those had "IRL". But if that's the case, then instead of calling reality a dream, you could call it say, an elephant.

If you don't agree, you can modify it. smile This "speculation" part looks like ridiculous and useless IMO.

I firmly believe that what we see is real. I also believe that some parts of reality are subjective -- that is, they are determined by us. It isn't a particularly large bit of reality that is affected by this, though...
