What's real and not real is not relevant to us, despite the fact that we've all been taught to think it's of the utmost importance.
That's right. I did just say that. And I meant what I said.
What's important is what we *want* to be true, how we use our hope and imaginations. That will determine what will be for us.
In this world, or, more properly, at this grade in our schooling, we are being taught how to ideate meaningfully, not how to align our thoughts with objective reality.
Objective reality is what we will create at a later stage in our schooling.
