    what is reality
    Real{ royal } estate is Earth{ terra-firma } and its biosphere that sustains our biological life.  We learned about this planet and others in 6th grade.

    Those facts have not changed.  The truth exists for those who seek it.

    That which exists is real. The only way to determine what exists is with perception. Even the use of science to quantify reality requires human perception.

    I would say reality is everything the majority of people perceive as real, which means reality is determined by consensus. If you are the only one who perceives something that people don't, I suggest you to look for professional help.

    Do you take the "appeal to the stone" to mean that even kicking a stone is not proof of its reality?
