We made this up.

No, you really need to listen to this. You've heard it before, lost in a sea of the obvious, but try it again:

We made this up.

We made time up. We made space up. We made logic up. We have forgotten that we made it up, and then forgotten this forgetting. But we did create it, and we can uncreate it and change it, if we remember.

The reason I am so emphatic about this is that I am trying to remember.

Reality is a theory. It is a theory we use to make sense of the universe. To make sense of our Self. Like any theory, it is useful, to a point. The Theory of Reality lets us share a common set of rules and bounds, of language and logic. But it is just a theory.

As with any theory, there are cracks and holes. There are things beyond it which it does not explain.

Newton's Laws are theories, too. They have been disproven, but they are still useful. They now function only in specific cases. Near the speed of light, they break down.

So it can be with us. Knowing that reality is not real does not kill it. You just expand your sense of reality. The assumptions are still there, but they are a part of you, you can turn them on and off. Some would call this insanity. Some would call it freedom.

Take any word and repeat it enough times to yourself, and it becomes meaningless. No logic is complete.

These are holes. Let's step through them. To the respond to some softlinkage: I define nothing as "unreal" in this context. Unreality presupposes reality. I'm saying: Look at your presuppositions. Not to discard them, but to realize that they are yours to interpret and reinterpret.
