    What is reality? Is it what we all believe? That everything exists independently from us or that everything exists because we make it exist in our minds.

    Children, as a general rule, defy all of our preconceived notions. In our consensus reality there are rules. In theirs, everything is fair game. Jumping off a park bench yelling “superman!” as far as they are concerned can mean flying from one side of the park to the other. An action figure has feelings, and teddy bears will protect them in the middle of the night from the monsters under their beds. There are no limitations. There are no rules. Anything, and everything, is possible. Unfortunately

    Reality Is Optional When does consciousness begin? Is mind or matter more real? Does observation alter an event? All these queries have one thing in common in that they all call into question the idea of reality. The most common definition of reality is founded in the idea that the world or the state of being is rooted in actuality. In George Orwell’s 1984, he plays around with the idea that reality or what is perceived as natural can be altered by a mere human being. In fact, the story itself is

    Appearance and Reality In Chapter One Bertrand Russell basically wants to know the true meaning of “reality”. The truth is that “reality” can never truly be determined. I say this because there is a difference between believing and actually knowing. For example I know the desk in the front of the classroom is real. I know this because all of my senses concur. Now when I try to determine to color, the texture or even the shape of the desk I will run into a problem. Just as the example given in the

    The Realities of War In our everyday existence, we are faced with the challenges of the realities of life. Often times we hide our true character in order for those to believe that all is fine in our world. There are no exceptions; all people cover up their actual feelings for different reasons.

    The Shadows of Reality We are like the people in Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave.” The people chained to the cave were forced to look at projections and shadows that were cast upon the wall.

Very few have
