When we discuss reality rationally (scientifically), we use words that distinguish classes. These classes can we only assume are “real” (ie, can be found) or not “real” (ie, are our fabrications).
Assuming they are real leads to the conclusion that reality is paradoxically contradictory, whereas assuming they are not real leads to the conclusion that reality is ambiguous. These two orthogonal conclusions are thus the two rational aspects of reality. Between them resides reality like a campfire between us. We agree about that it is there, but do at the same time disagree fundamentally (ultimately orthogonally) about what it is.
This “reality” is consistently described by quantum mechanics, ie, a matter of a probable being rather than of a being.
