What if I told you, that nothing is real? posted 20 March 2009 in Philosophy DiscussionWhat if I told you, that nothing is real? by avatar_of_existence, Peralogue

Okay, that above thing isn't true, i just haven't read ENOUGH Baudrillard recently to comment on it without caving into oblivion (on a side note I'm not sure if I like his work or not, so I'm not saying you should read it necessarily). That being said, real is just a word referencing that which is mutually agreed upon. Look at how entertainment has taken that word and made the most artificial situations imaginable and slapped 'reality show' on it, as if the show was more real than the real itself.
This all makes me think:
If no-thing could be a-thing than I would say that nothing is real.
I'm not sure if that's a joke or a poem or both or neither. view post
