How does one define reality?
Just last week, I had to watch the film, Dark City, and analyze it for symbolism. In short, this film deals with the nature of reality and whether or not it is concrete or relative. I really DON'T want to give away the plot twists in this movie, because it is simply TOO GOOD to be spoiled, it's practically known to be one of the best sci-fi films ever. I reccomend you watch it for a real head trip. For comparison, The Matrix (first movie) is practically a really watered-down remake of Dark City.
Now, how does one define reality? Some believe that reality is a concrete universe in which all experiences can be equally felt by all of of the universe's members. Some believe that reality is nothing more than the sum of our experiences. This presents a small problem, because if the second theory were true, we would have no way of knowing whether or not the experiences fed to us were real or fake (like The Matrix). How do you guys feel about this problem, and do you have any other interpretations of reality?
