So, this mostly just started as a rant. I was thinking about how much I hate getting up early in the morning while the ghosts that lives in my apartment pushed on my door. Then it all spiraled to the fact that time is a social construct. But, all of that got me really thinking. What is real? And, can we rank the realness of everything?
What I have written below is a tiny scale of what is real. Of course, this is all based on my own opinions, or whatever. It begins with ghosts and ends with time.
GHOSTS: Definetely Real
Here’s the thing: ghosts are real. Maybe I have not “seen” one. Maybe, there is no “scientific proof” of their existence. That does not matter because I know they are there. Ask any, ask my grandma. They all have some kind of story or encounter.
MOONLANDING: Possibly Real
The thing about the moonlanding is that I would love to believe in it. For the most part I do. The Mythbusters busted the myth that the whole thing was a hoax! Jamie and Adam would not lie to us. However, there is that little part of my brain that watched all of those conspiracy videos nagging at me. It yells “But what about the flag blowing in the nonexistent wind?!”
TIME: Not Real
Time is not real. It is a social construct. Humans gave the different positions of the sun assigned numbers. I should not have to wake up at 7:30 every Friday morning! The sun does not dictate my life. Unless we talk about astrology, which is science. Therefore, real. Time, on the other hand, absolutely fake.
As I said above, this is all based on my own opinions. I mean, some people do not believe in the moon. Maybe for them, the order would be “time, ghosts, moon.” Who knows? Everything is relative. Nothing is real and morning classes are bad!
