We'll get there WHEN WE GET THERE!

I realized reality is,
and if I’m a brain in a vat,
and all my perceptions electrical signals,
reality then must be that.

So it’s not that reality isn’t,
it’s just not how I think it to be.
Should I then waste my time and obsessively seek
for a way that my mind can be free?

Before I should follow that thought,
It’s helpful to first understand
that if all that I’ve said can be said to be true,
I am stuck in a true no-man’s-land.

So I’ll speak to the crux of the thing:
If our lives are perceivably real,
we should act like they are, and if wrong, we awake.
We’ve lived two lives instead. What a steal!
