If reality is a "controlled hallucination," are we condemned to overwhelming loneliness?
Now it is more or less generally accepted that we perceive the world not directly (direct realism), but because objects of the external world, affecting our senses, cause a "picture" in our head (representationalism).It is naive to think that the reflection of reality in my head and reality itself are the same. We are not dealing with trees, houses, or people, but only with their shadows that have appeared in our brain due to interaction with these entities. Even my own body I only feel or imagine…The very idea that there is a brain, sense organs, and the external world is also a "picture in my head", but something is actually there, I can't access it: after all, I don't operate in my head with a house or tree, a brain, but only with ideas, images of houses and trees.I fundamentally cannot imagine reality "actually". My senses may be fake: the matrix, the brain in a Putnam flask…Further. I do not know, and I am not able to know, whether I and other people feel, experience, and experience this world in the same way. On this topic: the inverted spectrum thought experiment. To compare my feelings with those of others, I must literally " see through someone else's eyes." But it will be MY feelings of HIS feelings!There is a depressing sight: each of us is alone inside his head, surrounded by entities of unclear nature, instead of people, and is not even able to understand whether we are experiencing the same emotions and sensations.
