Let me ask it this way. Imagine that one day you wake up, and you are able to decide in which way your brain "decodes" all of the electromagnetic outputs which control nose, touch, ear, sight, smell, taste, time and space which is what allow you to know "reality". Not in some astral projection, OBE or something, but in your physical existence.
You snap your fingers and are able to appear in front of you an apple and eat it, snap them again and have in front of you an endless field when before you were sitting in your room. 100% real physically.
How real would these realities be? How real is that apple and that field? Are you by being able to effectively decide the 100% of your perception and convincing yourself in every aspect of it, effectively living it, indeed picking quantum states of possibilities which are different but real from the previous reality? In the same way as how a radio can by changing its signal tune into real stations of music?
Or would you simply be a looney? How would the "other people" percieve you after that? Would you simply disappear from their reality since you are "tuning" into a different reality they arent and thus you would interact with "other people" that were already in that sphere? Would the other people too experience the "shift" and thus you would appear as them as a "supernatural being"? Or would they simply see you as a looney who is acting like one who acts on a play, and you never left your room and you are just making yourself the "make me laugh"?
Reflect on this.
Too hypothetical for me.
