The problem with understanding the reality of life may lie in one's definition of "real." If you think that real means that what you are
experiencing really exists and can be seen and heard and otherwise experienced through the physical senses then of course the life you are living is real. But if you mean is the life you are living the only reality, then no. Are the people in Africa or China non-existent or living an unreal life just because you can't see them? If you are talking to someone in a room where you are surrounded by people speaking languages you don't understand, is yours the only real conversation?
