Meaning of Reality
What is Reality:
Reality is an abstraction through which the real and effective existence of beings and things is designated. The word, as such, comes from Latin realitas, which in turn derives from beef, which means 'thing'.
In this sense, the word reality is also used as a synonym for truth, to designate what actually happens or happens. For example: "The reality is that thousands of people came out to protest."
Likewise, everything that is effective is called reality, that is, that has value in a practical sense. The opposite of this would then be the fantastic, the illusory. For example: "I had such a vivid dream that I mistook it for reality."
Reality is a concept that has multiple applications in all areas of human thought, both philosophical and scientific, technological or political and sociological.
