Glenn Garland Posted over 1 year ago What is reality ? So Harald, is there a reality created in our brains in an attempt to make us "feel" a certain way(in order to appease our peptide hungry cells)? If so, it would seem that out of the seven billion (or so) realities being experienced on earth, my reality my could be more accurately viewed by someone else. Someone not leashed to the emotion I am trying to achieve. Is it as though the brain is a clandestine spy using every trick at its disposal to get the information (stimulus for a desired response) it was requested to provide? Also, what happens when people share a reality? For instance, if one culture looks at another with certain stereotypes in place, they may have a common social reality regarding the other cultures people. Is reality more "firm" the more people share it? I really appreciate you posting the question by the way, thank you for the contribution.
