Perceptions of Reality posted 25 August 2006 in Philosophy DiscussionPerceptions of Reality by Entropic_existence, Moderator

Hey folks, this post may end up being more rambling than I intend but I want to get peoples opinions on reality, your perception of it, etc. Alot of post-modern thought tends (at least from my interpretation of it) to point that reality and truth are in a sense subjective, i.e. there is no such thing as absolute Truth. As a scientist I have a small problem with that because it seems to me there must be fundamental underlying Laws of nature that determine how the universe works.

Of course on the other hand I've always liked the idea that to an extent human belief shapes reality. I think of course that that comes from some of the many sci-fi and fantasy books that I have read where concepts like gods where shaped and empowered purely on human belief.

Anyway anyone have anything they would like to share on this subject? view post
