Is this Reality?

Had a really great conversation with a coworker yesterday and the concepts of Reality, Spiritual Connection, Coincidence and Perception came up. In fact we spent our whole lunch hour discussing it. He comes from a very different background and was raised in a family that practices the Bahai faith. I grew up with a pretty standard Western Evangelical Christian experience.

I'll be posting more on this later, but the conversation really got into the idea that human interaction, history and the things that we cling to as solid reality, may in-fact, be a a construct. Bring on The Matrix comparisons...I did in trying to explain it to him. Either way, I'll spend more time on this idea. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reality
