That is all interesting.

"We do not see things as they really are because all we get is an electrical signal. Therefore reality is an illusion. If nothing we sense is the true representation, how can we answer the question 'What's up?'"

"Therefore" may be premature. Sense alone may
be augmented by logic. If we have no baseline
reality, even if it is just a guess (as was
reality in old times), then we can have no
concept of unreality, right?
What else?
