I am wanting to continue the philosophy discussion. Let’s start today in 4-5 — we talked last week about one definition of real — that you go by what your senses show you, but what if you can’t trust your senses? What are situations where you couldn’t trust them? What you’re seeing can’t be real? Seeing something, you’re not sure what? Or me and my wife last night, each saying the cat was with each of us separately. I assume she was wrong. We do trust our senses — sometimes we have to — and yet, what if we can’t? My example last night — “fake news” or conspiracies? Life after death? Ghosts?
