    Keep in mind, as everyone knows, I'm agenda driven. But don't let that bias your input.

    'Reality is' is a sentence on its own.

    a) ... a state of mind.

    b) ... a place where we live, but everyone else with different beliefs does not. eg '.... lost touch with reality'

    I dislike saying what reality is because it generates tautologies. Reality is a state of mind. What is a state of mind? Well, a mode of apprehending reality ...

    The word "reality" can have different meanings depending on context.

    Now for a much harder question: Is the imagination real?

    What about imaginary numbers?

    I don't deny that, I merely claim that any attempt to define reality is bound to be tautological.

    I understand reality as a mind-only condition, as a tank of countless potentialities from which all the events -or the absense of the events- emerge; every given event is generated out of this dynamic mind-only field every time that the wavefunction is collapsed.

    Imagination, a faculty of our brain, is real, and it enables us to hover at will into the dynamic mind-only field of potentialities before we actually collapse the wavefunction by means of action at the realm of the physical world that surrounds usđŸ˜”
