No spoon


"-Master, we're playing tags and TAG! You're it.
-No, YOU're it!"

In the movie Matrix we see this exchange:

”Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Spoon boy: Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. ”

What is real?
How do you define real?
If what you're talking about is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then 'real', in a "scientific sense", is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.
We can get angry or scared from movies and dreams because from the point of view of the brain, it is all 'real'. Your brain can't tell the difference between something imagined and something in the material world. They are both just electric signals.
In fact, if you imagine you are a God, you are.
So, what are you?

Thank you for your practice.
