    Q.How can we tell the difference between reality and dreams?

    Q.What makes us us? Is it.....

    -our memories, whether they're genuine or not?
    or
    -our past, even if we don't remember it?
    or
    -our actions and feelings in the here and now?

    Q.Are our bodies just vehicles for our personalities, and can we change those personalities like we change our clothes?

    A very nice thread, Shu!

    !! To me, what dictates who you are, are the resulting fruits of your actions. The physical body carries no meaning to what you are, it's just a temporary cage for your soul. Indeed, I believe that bodies are none other than clothes. That's one of the basic premises of reincarnation. Anyway...

    What is you, is your soul. Nothingless less, nothing more. And to see the reality, hidden beneath the mist of maya or illusion, one has to attain nirvana/moksha [salvation], until then, the real truth cannnot really be seen.

    That's just my opinion. ^_^

    Well, it depends on what kind of person you are!

    Q.What makes us us? Is it.....
    We are human beings, that have evolved for many millions of years. Our species has reached a high level of intelligence. We are so darn smart that we have created many stuff like big buildings, but the most important achievement of mankind is religion. Religions were created by people to keep control of others, with the help of religions you can control mass numbers of people.

    reality is a place that can not be altered by just your consciouness unlike your dreams~
    our actions now are what makes us us actually what people perceive us, what everyone thinks of you is you

    Q1 half the time we can't.... that makes a funny scene.... I guess by reminding ourselves that dreams aren't real, unless you go make them real...
    Q2 Our choices that we make.
    Q3 Personallity is one thing that makes up us and though it can control our actions sometimes, they don't change so easily..

    brain is a complex peace of meat. if you believe hard enough then you would believe in it. people lie to them selves all the time and sometimes they caougt up in there own web of lies and disceat that they get caught in it and sometimes believe in there own lies without even realizing it.

    The brain is truly an amazing thing.
