See the animal in his cage that you built,
Are you sure what side you're on?
Better not look him too closely in the eye,
Are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
See the safety of the life you have built,
Everything where it belongs
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart,
And it's all... right where it belongs

What if everything around you,
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks,
Would you find yourself... find yourself afraid to see?

What if all the world's inside of your head?
Just creations of your own
Your devils and your gods all the living and the dead
And you're really all alone
You can live in this illusion,
You can choose to believe.
You keep looking but you can't find the woods,
While you're hiding in the trees

What if everything around you,
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you used to know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is that all you want to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks,
Would you find yourself... find yourself afraid to see?

Love that song.

Anyway, It's a thought provoking idea, and I've pondered these questions for awhile now.
I think we see what we think is there. I don't know if anything is real, but I do know that my mind perceives it that way.

That would pretty much suck.

I've actually thought about the color thing for a long time.

I think some scientists said fairly recently that there's a 20% chance that we're all part of a computer simulation.


wait, what the f*ck? i mean how the f*ck do you calculate that? h*w*l?

I have a joke!

Descartes goes into a bar and has a few drinks. The bartender asks if he'd like one more and he says, "I think not." And he instantly disappears.

the matrix theory.
its interesting but theres a profesor at a university who calculated the chance of us all being characters in someones simulation game. crazy, no?

Is it something like, computers always increase in capability, and that means that eventually one will be good enough to siumalte an entire world, so a computer CAN do it so it's really probable....

ive personally thought about this a couple times and even brought it up to my parents. They thought i was crazy lol. anywho i always thought that the life we are iving now could just be a dream and then we wake up from it young and aware of the mistakes we can make.

Or maybe there are 2 of me. When i make one choice i go one way, and the alternate me makes the other choice. and its an on going process.

i dont know maybe i am crazy, but i do know when i lay in my bed, i think of **** like that. lol

Colour is relative, so that really doesn't matter too much. Although all it is is different wavelengths or EM radiation, so it probably is how you see it.

As for the dream thing, that does kinda scare me when I think about it, because what happens if the being wakes up? Or what if we're just some hugely complex computer program? What happens when the computer is turned off? It's a bit of a mind****, but when you think about it, the statement 'I think therefore I am' isn't necessarily true, because if we are all a dream, then none of us really exist, no matter how much we think.
