@OP - everyone has asked those questions at one time or another. Been there, done that.

His parents filled out Goatboy's birth certificate electronically. They tried to name him Butch, but his dad had fat fingers so he ended up hitting the 'i' key instead.

You'd think that'd be the one time -everyone- would spell check.

What if what you think you saw wasn't real, what if everything was a lie? Also, our ways of thinking developed from the day we were born, we were raised thinking that the color of red you see is called red, but what if that were blue to someone? The color red, but the name of blue? That can used for a lot of things, the actual subject was crazy, but think about it...


Everyone has indeed had that thought. It's called solipsism (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solipsism) and it's stupid. Here's why:

Even if your perceptions of reality are different, what does it matter? As long as your reality is comparable to everybody else's it doesn't make any difference at all.

unless, it's a longshot comparison and it took more time and mental energy to make the connection. Maybe that's autism, and such similar problems come from...

If anyone really thought like this then they must question every single thing in this world. All of you are just butterflies believing you are humans. Nah, just kiddin' but if everything was just a HUGE figment of our imagination we would be thinking of WAYYY better things. We'd be able to fly with nothing but our bodies, we'd have x-ray vision, and many many other awesome things like that.

That's about the most retarded thing I ever heard. The idea is that you're not consciously imagining it - it's happening subconsciously.

That's the most wackiest thing I've ever read because even if it was subconsciously you'd probably subconsciously reward yourself with many many things and awesome powers. Plus I don't think your subconscious thinking would imagine things like rape, torture, aging, birth, what's under a microscope, consistency, scientists making theories about our life, the internet, religions, fossil placement, the learning process, sitcoms, and all kinds of other things.

Fly free you crazy butterfly :)

Well as said we all tought and talked about the subject of reality but what you mentioned if someone names the color red blue doesn't really matter,because we have a lot of different names for a lot of stuff so you can't really see that as some form of our imagination from the subconscius
