Because everything is negotiable, how about the following definition of reality: reality is anything out there which continue to exist if we remove ourself.

This definition has major advantage: then the reality is completely independent of what we think or feel or speculate about it.

(If you think that such reality may disappear or change if when we disappear, think again: did anything ever change with anybody's death?)

Alex.
