What is reality?

Question asked by: louie20

Asked on: 13 Mar 2010

Reality is that which we experience personally.

In other words it is the sum of the phenomena that we sense through our bodies, which include that which reaches our brain through the eyes, ears, taste, touch, smell.

Reality is a deeply personal experience and we can only ever know our own reality, though we tend to think different people see the world in a similar way to ourselves.

What reality is actually like is impossible to say as we necessarily see it in an interpreted sense - colours are not really 'there' in the world for instance in the objects themselves but are how we interpret the world.
