    Reality is in perception, it doesn't matter what something is, only what you believe it to be.

    i agree with prelude 98.72%.

    your personally reality is dependant upon the environment of the first perception of the object.

    But then if reality is perspective, then none of you really exist. Ah far as I am concerned everyone I have met here could be a fancy ASP on the cprog server.

    I believe in an incomplete understanding/perception of a constant and absolute reality. At some level, there is truth.

    All of the regulars are. Salem, quzah (duh), myself, and various others. In reality, the creators of Cprogramming are raking in big bucks for writing these incredible AI programs which can interact in unique and amusing ways while still being able to create convincing answers to various programming questions. You would be facinated by the algorithms which define our behavior.

    Have you guys seen the Matrix? Reality is in perception of reality. What you think is real is real.

    I agree with this view of reality. I think that there is one reality, while OUR reality varies with our understanding/perception of it.

    Whether or not you believe that I have a cup that says "I love my grandma" on my desk, that does not change it's existance... ughh, whatever.

    i'm a relativist and you are an absolutist.

    I think that what someone thinks of something is their personal truth about it, although that personal truth may be changed by a social truth's influence.

    Well quite, but it is not the objective truth.

    Is there always a 100% objectiv truth that will always stand? I don't think so
