Have you guys ever had an out of body experience?

Let's have a simple discussion. How does anyone prove something is real? With physical evidence? We have to all be able to see, touch and reproduce the same "real" thing yes? Say, a bird.

We know birds are real, because we've all seen birds, yes? But, what about a blind man, who can never ever see the birds. Is anything really real to him? If he cannot ever see anything the rest of us tell him is real?

If he never touches, hears or smells a bird, are birds ever really "real" to this man? What is truly "real" to a blind, deaf, mute, comatose etc. individual? I've been thinking about it much lately. It's perplexing. But I love where it takes me. Where does it take you friend?
