    The term "real reality' kinda fails for me.

    There is only 1 type of reality, that being what occurs. There is our perception, which is a facet of reality.

    If our perception is and always will be offset from what actually happens though, that disjunction creates a distinction between the reality that is important to and affects us, and the reality that actually exists.

    Our consciousness is part of said reality, but the act of perception does not create a new reality.

    You can change "reality," to "current perception of reality," and "real reality," to "reality."

    The reason I called our current perception of reality simply "reality," is that that is what people generally mean when they use the term.

    People tend to be pretty moronic, then.

    In that case, your statement seems rather obvious? We don't perceive everything that happens?

    It's an issue of practicality. Does it matter if two watches work in completely different ways if they both tell the time well?
