There are many articles (esp. Pinker's work) which seek to answer the question of "what makes reality, real?" Studies are pointing to the notion that reality is a subjective, NOT objective, phenomena. What this means is that your reality is shaped by what you believe, what you've experienced, and what you know to be true. If you believe yourself to be dumb and lazy, chances are you will create that reality in your life and manifest the circumstances which perpetuate what you believe about yourself. If you believe you are destined to live a life free of limitations and boundaries set against you, then you will see the opportunities open up to you and make that your reality.

The thing is that we have to study the onion. We perceive the world based on already acquired knowledge, experience, seeing what we expect to see rather than what it actually is. We don't actually see, we just believe that we see. For example I'm staying in front of the class and the students believe there is only one Liza they see, but actually that is wrong. If there are 19 students, not including me, and one teacher in the classroom, hence at least twenty one Liza exists. Everyone has his own image of me in his mind, which is real and exists.
