Reality In ‘The Great Gatsby’ by F
Is it possible to write original fantasy anymore? : writing
This is quite a fascinating little thing that is going on here. Your brain insists that line A is longer than line B yet they are the same length. After all you can see that it extends farther back into the picture and your mind recognizes the fact that a fireplace is much wider than it is deep so the illusion is maintained and the picture looks accurate. It is a good drawing of a fireplace.

Only the truth is sacred. Fantasies, fables, fairytales and myths are not.
Leap of faith: Religions ask us to believe that the world we live in and can see with our own eyes is false, and the fairytale world described in old books filled with impossible miracles and contradicting interpretations is the real truth.
If there really was an all-knowing God, like in the myth, he would not expect honest, intelligent beings to believe what religions are saying is the truth.
If belief does not work in life, why would a God expect intelligent beings to believe it works in death? Believing the rent will be paid does not pay it.
Believe in believing: The truth is, everyone that believes in believing in the unbelievable lives in the mind and is nowhere near the truth and the life (Jesus).
The Bible says, “Those who think they're the closest are the farthest away.”
Human nature: Knowing nature as we do now, including human nature, which is more likely; an invisible man/God that lives in the sky did impossible miracles, or people who made it up?
Honesty: The truth is, it is more likely people made it up. That is the truth for certain. A truly honest person would have to admit that and not believe myths or say they do without some real evidence. Do only dishonest people go to heaven?
To know that you do not know is the best. To pretend to know when you do not know is a disease. Lao Tzu
Delusions: The very nature of the human mind is delusional. It will see what it wants to see, what it believes or wants to believe exists. People try to see Big Foot, UFOs, fairies, werewolves, leprechauns, angels, gods, ghosts, goblins, dragons, sea monsters, mermaids, elves, little green men, giants, unicorns, vampires, trolls, demons, succubus, zombies, cherubs, cyclops and the boogie man, etc.
Then there are the genies and magic lamps, magic wands, voodoo dolls, flying carpets, fountain of youth, the philosopher’s stone, potions and spells, etc.
We have no hard evidence that they are real or ever existed, but we have a lot of hard evidence of hoaxers, people that lie, and the mentally ill.
They are all just mind games that the devil/mind has used to hide the divine truth.
Until recently, people could not know those things were not real, so when someone told them they were real, people would just believe them and pass on the story as the truth. Many people have said they have seen everything above. Which is more likely; that the things above were or are real, or that someone made them up?
