Part 1 – Are You Real? (this post)
Part 2 – How Are You Real?
Part 3 – How Real Are You?
Most people generally understand to some degree what is real from what is not from the perspective of their daily encounters. However that does not mean that they are not, at best confused, at worst almost totally mad (i.e. technically insane) when it comes to certain beliefs that they either totally or partially hold to be truth, factual or real.
This is a teaser, the first of three, to a pending post series on this blog that discuss the issue of reality, what it really is. Here we are discussing existential realities (i.e. what is existentially real as opposed to what is fantasized, imagined, theorized or hypothesized) not the numerous other kinds or types that are also being discussed and studied.
Real Or Imagined
The entertainment industry including fiction writers have been major sources of postulations on alternate realities since way before the beginning of the age of enlightenment and information in the human social order. But they were not the first. If our historians and scientists can be believed humankind has been postulating and theorizing on alternative realities from the beginnings of the species called Homo sapiens.
But our philosophers from as far back as we have records of their thoughts, seems to be very confused (and still are), as they typically are about almost everything that has to do with life, values and reality. They are forever arguing and asserting their supreme views, opinions and beliefs but never being able to give us satisfactory answers that are both clear and precise.
For example ever since these proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of philosophy (which include all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of religions, all religions and systems of belief), the supreme thinkers of their respective age and also those of the entirety of the human social order, have been arguing about evil, what it is. You can read about all their assertions, declarations, proclamations and announcements as they have been widely published (available in the national and educational libraries of many of the economically, technologically, educationally and socially developed andor advance nations of the human social order; many also freely available and easily accessible on the internet) all of which were and are at best very muddled, and at worst totally confusing and even ridiculously confusing. After that you can compare them (all their declarations, assertions and views) with what is disclosed (very briefly and concisely) in the Glossary post of this work under the entry wickedness. But do not be surprised if you find in some of the newer works published after this work here began publishing in 2009 C.E. on Blogger, incorporating the definition disclosed and discussed by this work (but without acknowledging the source). This is basically because, near all the entirety of humankind are essentially self expedient, solely self advancing plagiarizing liars. This include even near all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives among the true Christians of today including the very Angel and Messenger (i.e. appointed human leader) in the one and only true Church of GOD.
The question of what reality actually is, is a complex one that will probably take at the very least a large volume book to fully explore all aspects of. In the series on ‘The Issues Of Reality’ discussing what reality is, we will explore some aspects of what the various segments of the human social order understand or represent reality to be. Then we will discuss why our brilliantly intelligent men and women of science and philosophy don't fully know what reality really is. They have some ideas, some pretty good and accurate ideas but they don't get the really important thing about reality just as in the same way they don't really get what life is or what existence is. Over a few hundred years ago most of the recognized leading experts of science thought our galaxy was the whole universe not too different when around a hundred years ago they thought that the atom was the smallest possible indivisible state of matter. They later learned that the universe was a lot more voluminous than that but still thought that it was more or least totally (or mostly) empty (i.e. devoid of anything) space separating dusts, planets, stars filled galaxies and other celestial bodies and objects. I am not sure whether with all that they have uncovered and discovered (i.e. learned) since they still think that the universe is fill with empty space separating the galaxies and other celestial objects, I certainly hope not.

The main basis of all this author's discussion is to the original inspired text of the Christian Holy Scriptures sourced from material currently (at time of the post) publicly available as ‘translated’ text in numerous version of the Christian Bible, and also the Strong Exhaustive Concordance of the King James Version. The discussion focus and context is with respect to this author's Christian commitment and beliefs through the calling of ALMIGHTY GOD to the baptism of repentance into the Everlasting Covenant mediated by LORD JESUS of the Christian Bible Gospel's accounts.
The referenced sources for all other religions and systems of belief (hereafter referred to as the Referenced Sources), are to materials freely available and published online on the World Wide Web and other service protocols on the Internet. These are published by either: the generally proclaimed, acclaimed and acknowledged experts and masters; or the self proclaimed, acclaimed and acknowledged experts and masters of such belief systems and religions; as well as of all others who published dissertations and discussions on these system of beliefs and religions whether presented as biased or unbiased discussion, dissertations or compilations.
The materials directly and specifically attributed to, as sources that form the basis to this author's discussions topics are by no means all the sources referenced by this author but just a small sampling of such information referenced by this author that are accurate contextual representations of what is widely published.
Anyone who dispute the accuracy or truthfulness of the discussions, dissertations and assertions with regards to other religions and systems of belief (other than the true Christian faith and worship of this author) are requested to take the matter up with the Reference Sources.
This author at no point claimed to be discussing the original work of the originators of any other religions' or systems of belief other than the Christian commitment and worship by the Everlasting Covenant mediated by LORD JESUS. All discussions of other religions and systems of belief are based solely on what have been published and were available prior to the time the discussion was posted, and attributed to the Referenced Sources.
Please bear in mind that almost all the Referenced Sources of nearly all religions and systems of belief varied their doctrines, assertions and teachings significantly from time to time through the course of human history, as well as by their various and differing members of those who are the contemporary proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of these religions and systems of belief, whether they are those generally acknowledged by the human social order and/or those who claimed affiliations to these religions and systems of belief, or those who are self appointed. Therefore if anyone finds any discussion by this author of these religions and systems of belief to be inaccurate, they should refer back to those materials published on these religions and systems of belief that were contemporary to the date the discussion was first posted.
