Here are 27 quotes about reality that might help you understand what reality actually is.

Is reality merely the material world and what we experience in our environment?

Or is reality more holographic or virtual? Are we creating reality with our own minds?

The questions are endless, but we can only get answers when we realise it ourselves.

Like when Morpheus says in the Matrix:

“I’m trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.”

Morpheus, The Matrix

He’s saying that no one can tell you what reality (the Matrix) is, you have to see it for yourself to know it.

Maybe these reality quotes will point you in the right direction.
