Drugs and Ego

The fact that a drug can effect the decisions "I" make seems to be evidence of the nonexistence of the ego. If a drug affects my choices then they really aren't choices at all.

Reality the Memory Chip

"Reality" is just like a memory chip storing data. It is a set of data, a matrix. Our senses read from it and our brains take it and make it a part of themselves. That is, it changes state to match it. This could be a memory chip, or something more complicated like in The Matrix, or more probobly it is just what we see. But then really that data set is how we see it. If we see one representation that is all we can see. Not only that but it is the truth from our perspective.
