    Reality is One. This is a fact. If it were not then anything absurd would occur.


    Wikipedia has this to say about reality:

    Reality is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or might be imagined.[1] In a wider definition, reality includes everything that is and has been, whether or not it is observable or comprehensible. A still more broad definition includes everything that has existed, exists, or will exist.

    If I knew that I would be sharing it now wouldn't I. We know there is only one reality, but we don't know exactly what reality is.

    So, first you say it is a fact and then say you have no idea what it means?

    Speak for yourself.

    I said "Reality is One." No more, no less.



    You do not know what reality is.

    yet you defined reality through the definition from Wikipedia what more are you searching for ?

    That is not a definition. It's only alluding to reality, not telling us what it is.

    reality is about forms

    the Universe gives forms , in the forms of galaxies , stars , planets , moons etc . and their dynamics

    life is a dynamic form that is completely different and it plants its seed where it can , upon the physical dynamic

    reality is about both forms

    Prove it. Or are you just purposefully ignorant?

    Prove what? You already admitted not knowing what you're even talking about.

    Yep. Absolutely. And absolute.

    Pure, native Energy. All else is an illusion and is therefore not real.

    Change seems to be a fundamental aspect of reality. But when A changes into B, we have different states before and after the change. That suggests that reality must have internal multiplicity. If A is the only state that the universe can assume, then there wouldn't be any multiplicity, but there wouldn't be any change either.

    Son,

    When you state "Reality is One," are you referring to "God" as defining "Reality?" ("God is One"/"Reality is One.")

    I ask because of how you define "reality" in your OP. ("...whether or not it is observable...")

    Occam's razor suggests that ultimate reality, or the ground of being, is a unified whole. And to ask what the ground of being is is to suppose there is an underlying structure or substance to it, but by definition the ground of being has no underlying structure or substance, that's what makes it the ground of being. It simply is what there is and all that there is.

    Reality is everything: everything EVER; future, past, present, and this does not just relate to time but also other humans (and animals.) This is something son obviously does not know

    (as neither do I.) However I can relate to his problem. If one possesses EVERYTHING (ALL) it would appear that love is what the population CHOOSE, and it continues to grow!
