You have never experienced reality. Not in the unfiltered way that the common folk assume they have. If we are to believe the perceived world to be the truly real, you are still experiencing it filtered through a multitude of interfaces. At best, you're living an open-ended video game. Interacting with the world through a nuanced and intuitive controller, experiencing everything in glorious ultra high def and infinity-point-one speakers. At worst, you're living a dream on repeat, watching an ancient replay of an already lived life.
