People in a society commonly agree upon what is real or Reality. The Aborigines of Australia view reality different then what we agree reality is.

Reality is then subjective and objective. If I were to write what I think reality is, it would have to include many different concepts.

Reality is created in the mind. A healthy sober mind using the input from the five senses, and the recognition from previous stored memory, assembles reality into consiousness.

If the mind is on drugs, hallucinating or even lucid dreaming then the consciousness is still experiencing what it would consider reality, its just not the reality that every one would agree upon.

We also create our reality by what we believe.
