Non-Bit Reality
Posted by Articles [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2014, 12:03 am

Things that are real:

  • dimensions
  • sex
  • physical sensation
  • religious organizations
  • a hand-written letter
  • a fat stack of cash
  • a DVD with data written on it

Things that someone could argue aren't real:

  • human relationships
  • dreams
  • pride
  • an email
  • heartbreak
  • financial investments
  • digital currency
  • risk
  • account balances
  • fraud
  • debt
  • legal arguments
  • property rights
  • substance abuse
  • regret
  • social connections
  • digital currency

Things that probably aren't real:

  • Unicorns
  • robots who transform into dinosaurs
  • the absolute truth that the old ways were better than new ways
  • the absolute truth that new things are better than old things
  • boyfriends whose bodies are pigeon bodies

These lists are not exhaustive. Feel free to suggest additions to each. I find it's easiest to add to that middle list — things that might be real in some sense, but that might be considered "not real" by other definitions of "real."
