    Jillian and Del:

    Are you not able to form a reasoned, well thought out response without resorting to sarcasm and deflection from the original topic!

    Aristotle, Socrates and Descarte were on an airplane. The stewardess asks if they would like some drinks. Aristotle says he would like a coke. Socrates says he'll take ginger ale. The stewardess turns to Descartes and asks if he would like one, he says "I think not," and he disappears.

    Semantic question imho. If we are limited by our senses and our reason, the reality presented to us by our reason and our senses is the "real" world. The level of accuracy or completeness of that reality relative to some objective reality, while subject to speculation, is unknowable since anything beyond "our" reality is by definition beyond our limitations. Additionally, it cannot to our knowledge affect us, since any effect we perceive is by definition within our limitations and thus brings that effect into our reality and subjects it to reason, making it part of "our" reality and in doing so cofirming to a greater degree that "our" reality reflects objective reality.
