Default There is no reality.


New Scientist Magazine says there's no such thing as reality.

http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/ns...-the-past.html

So that would be the only fact worth knowing then.

"Reality is conceptual"
(A Morehouse axiom)

I like to think that viewpoint is useful.

Yes well it is either that or insanity. I know which to go for.
Whatever next.

I remember all the psych magazines and journals saying there's no such thing as a trait.
I remember when social scientists were running around saying there's no such thing as racial differences.

Now a half-baked, clumsy attempt to get at what's been said since before recorded time.

This is me being up for two hours now so I don't cough and keep my husband awake. Just like I have been up in the stupid hours, like this, for the past three weeks!

This is me saying if there is no reality why the hell am I awake and upright when I actually want to be asleep and horizontal?!

Reality is cold and dark!

So reality is disease?

Actually, that's very Buddhist.
