    Because every new stimulus changes our perception, thus changing our reality. Every new thing added has an effect on and a relationship with everything we thought we knew to be true.

    Reality has a way of pulling one within. To be unrealistic however can lead one beyond what is real and does not involve an event. An event is reality and shifts and changes a life entirely.

    Ok I got three things for you to think about

    Is your reality the same as mine?

    Are there any truly constant things in reality?

    What, then is reality?

    First answer a definite NO

    Second answer if you really think about it, nothing is constant. You could stop breathing in the next second, or get hit in the head and killed by a meteorite next July 4th for all anyone else knows. So there are no absolute constants to your existence, nor anyone elses for that matter. But the kicker is someone else can change your reality either purposely or accidentally, just as much as you could do to them, or their reality.

    The last question may have to be answered with more questions.

    Reality is what we think we percieve right here right now. Just like if my PC crashes while typing this, my reality will have changed due to the crash. It's no one's fault, it just happened. Reality is constantly changing. These changes, sometimes traumatic, force us to see the changed reality around us and thus force us change our perception of here and now. So what I am trying to say is reality is a nice sounding word, but what exactly does it mean?

    That person who is suffering from a psychological disorder in a padded room may be "crazy" to us, but to him (his own reality) we are the crazy ones and he's normal. So who's right?

    So far it has been majority rules.

    The majority establishes the norm, the minority are not in the norm, therefore abnormal.

    Think about that one too.

    One day at a time is all I can say

    It is the nature of things. Not just for individuals, either. The planet's reality changes in the same manner: Copernicus, Einstein, etc.

    Because that moment that second that minute can change everything cause of the way someone reacts to them or over powers them or does anything that they dislike or feels bad about and unsure about, and they remeber and instantly decided they need to change and do that at that moment at that second and that minute.

    Because sometimes that one event can change your whole entire perspective on things.
