Depending on our current perspective we talk about reality as being: physical, illusion, a dream state, a matrix or a hologram etcetera. I see reality as any and all of these. And through observation, belief and agreement we can define reality as any one of those labels, but in reality what is real?
In other words, absent belief and agreements is there something that's real and can it be defined?
Great question Eddie.
"absent beliefs and agreements, is there something that's real and can be defined?"
There are many definitions for the word real - for the general consensus it means something that physically exists or can be scientifically proven, so the average human mind would agree that there are many things that are real.
** However, to define real beyond beliefs and agreements, I'd say we have to actually go to the source of creation. So real is not anything that can be defined by the human mind, but is the essence of who we are and can only be experienced and truly defined by that connection to source.

Reality is a creation. And that creation is relative to the creator. The minute you try to define it, it becomes something else.

From what my silly mind can tell, only what is in our mind that is observed by the self can be real to the observer. Everything else so far we have a general consensus and agreements as to what is. Democratically speaking we "have" a reality that HUMANS agree on. But nothing that can be ultimately proven.
Still pondering this query, this came to mind.
Ultimately, nothing really matters except what matters to you at this very moment.

"Perception is reality". Someone said that to me 15 years ago and i hadnt a clue what it meant. The more i go on in life the more sense it makes.

Cogito, ergo sum - Rene Descartes (1596-1650), namely 'I think,therefore I am'. Thinking is the first indubitable truth and the proof of being. Thinking need compulsory a thinker 'substance', with or without repose mass.Toward starts the relativity of human reality.
But beginning from I think consciously, the thinker can reconstitute through knowledge (logic & intuitive), getting over step by step on inverse sense, the way of Creation and its evolutionary development and diversification, to the Creator Mental. There, the seeker human shall be discovering the absolute, primordial truth.
Not to be disappointed and demobilizated if the searching way will last many lives.
