As state of mind varies, reality appears differently.

Reality is not an illusion. Reality is quite real when state of mind is factored in.

If someone lived inside a dream all the time, the space and things and events of the dream would be quite real. However, if he exited the dream, reality would change radically.

Of course, there is the physical reality we all share. It is not enough to say each one of us perceives that reality in a slightly different way. For example, I said this in 2015:

About 12 years ago, I extensively interviewed Dean Radin, the author of a scientific classic, The Conscious Universe.

The interview confirmed and expanded on Radin's published findings. Here is the most accurate statement I can make about those findings:

Studying the entire history of paranormal lab experiments; selecting from that published literature all well-formed and properly conducted studies; Radin discovered that the overall statistical evidence was clear: paranormal ability was demonstrated beyond the factor of chance or the rules of probability.

Many of these studies tested psychokinesis, the ability to influence matter with mind alone. In such studies, this ability exceeded chance or statistical probability as well.

Radin didn't stop there. Having done the exhaustive research, and having published his findings, he reviewed the major criticisms leveled at him by other scientists, and he responded to their detailed analysis with convincing analysis of his own.

In a half-sane world, Radin's book, The Conscious Universe, would have caused a widespread revolution.

That it didn't merely testifies to the hidebound preconceptions of scientific establishments and media outlets.

But the book did cause a stir with the public, and it most certainly registered with researchers who could keep an open attitude long enough to study Radin's detailed work.

Here is one type of study that has been performed many times. Volunteers are placed before a case in which there are numerous holes and pegs. From the top, small balls are dropped downward. The volunteer is asked to try to mentally influence the paths of the balls, so more of them end up in holes to the left of center or right of center.

The case is built so that, normally, half the balls would come to rest in holes to the left of center, and half to the right.

The author of "The Conscious Universe, 2009" Dean Radin, has a new book out that was recommended by Josh Mitteldorf, "Real Magic, 2018. I have no trouble believing Radin's rigorous scientific studies.

Radin and Robert Jahn both have produced evidence that conscious intention is able to change quantum probabilities. I believe this is the most important finding in science of the 2nd half of the 20th century.

Quantum mechanics is a formalism for calculation, and there are many competing interpretations of what the formalism means. Physicists claim that there is no way to differentiate among them experimentally. They haven't read Radin or Jahn, or maybe they dismiss this line of experimentation out of hand.
