Do you think what you see is real? How can you be so sure about it? How would do justify the fact that the world we live in is nothing but a simulated reality? Well, I cannot. And this is why I sometimes think, is everything surrounding me really real?

The Truman show is a Jim Carrey starred American movie released in 1998. The story is about the man named Truman Burbank whose life is transmitted unedited, uncut, 24X7 on the show called The Truman show. He lives in a dome, the fake world created for him by Chistof (Creator of his world, just as Christ). Truman believes in the reality which was presented to him. He could not see beyond the simulated boundaries for a very long time because of the human nature we possess, to believe in the reality that is put before us.
We always connect doubt with negativism. However, there’s something good about being doubtful. It is at least better that agnosticism. By being doubtful one doesn’t deny the possibilities. Doubting the standards and stereotypes rather, paves a new path for us towards seeing the reality with an unbiased and clear mind. Doubt is the first step towards the truth. Also, Gautam Buddha had said, “Doubt everything. Find your own light.”
Do you think that the reality might be different from what we have believed it to be and we can discover the truth of life, of our existence and move beyond the sham world?
