You're sure.

, if it really exists, or if it is an illusion


What? I think you meant to say.

"Your eyes can let you see things; no matter whether they are real or illusion."

Well duh,

An example of an illusion, color!


As is your monitor.

Those senses are illusory too.

Do you think there are no smell illusions?
No hearing illusions?
No Feeling illusions?

Are you serious? You really think that everything is just an illusion?

Illusions aren't real. A dream is an illusion for example. What you just siad was that everything is an illusion. Meaning that you said everything is fake. How can you say all of that, but not about something as simple as color!

i don't believe everything is fake. Much less your monitor.

The point that I'm trying to make is that it's difficult to label something as reality. And thus, as fiction.

To say that color is an illusion, is to say that sight is an ilusion.

Is to say that sound is an illusion.

I guess it is, but if color is an illusion, what senses are real.

My point isn't getting through, is it.

No.

All things seen are the brain's interpretation of light.

That's why you can't see in the dark - The absence of light.

Color is a facet of the brain's interpretation of light.

Color is a facet of sight.

Still arguing? I found out I was wrong yesterdy. An apple absorbs all the colors of the wavlength, except for the red wavelength. It reflects the red wavelength back to our eyes. So, it turns out that you don't see objects, you see the light reflecting off them.

Here's another theory to think about: The exsistence of something is an opinion motivated by the illusions of society.

I think, just for gentlemanliness, Rping should be allowed here.

So, in other words, something that we think that is real, might not be real?

I didn't read any of the thread, except for the last few comments.
