A lot of issues boil down to perspective. we can change a lot by changing our outlook and attitudes. Also, like those theories that we're all one big dream, i'm yours, your mine. That just depends on how you look at things. If i lived the rest of my life in a coma fantasy, things really wouldn't be so different. Or how about all that mind of matter stuff, if you think hard enough, your body won't feel pain, or will feel whatever you want. Or even just math? how much of this world is really physical? and how much is what we think of it, how we think of it, or just thought alone?
