Life Is But Illusion And.html

Right: George Berkeley. Berkeley doubted even of the material world. To him, everything was but an illusion. The presence of dream and illusion in our lives are a current theme in philosophical and literary thought. In its most radical presentation, this concept proclaims that men live immersed in dreams and illusion. Behold! Human beings live in an underground cave. They only see their own shadows, or the shadows of one another, which the fire throws on the opposite wall of the cave.
Plato, 428-347 b.C., Greek philosopher, in The Republic Castles in the air they are so easy to take refuge in. And easy to build, too.
Henrik Ibsen, 1826-1906, Norwegian writer, The Master Builder We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep William
Shakespeare, 1564-1616, English writer, The Tempest A man that is born falls into a dream like a man who falls into the sea.
Joseph Conrad, 1857-1924, Anglo-polish writer, Lord Jim What is life? An illusion, a dream, a fiction, and the biggest well is small, because all life is a dream, and the dreams, themselves are only dreams.
Calderon de la Barca, 1600-1681, Spanish writer, Life is a Dream In the night that brings the sleep, the dreams laugh of us, wandering in front of our eyes.  
Petronius, Satiricon, I Century b. C., Roman writer Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?
Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1802-1809, English poet, The Higher Pantheism. Those who compared our lives to a dream have more reason than they thought.
Montaigne, Essays, 1533-1592, French writer and philosopher

Man Can’T Live Without Illusion.html

Some thinkers, mainly modern and contemporary, defend that man can’t dispense with illusion. It is part of human nature, and is a way of escaping from the difficult side of life, from the suffering and lack of meaning present in our deeper existence. Life demands the dream. Man can’t tolerate the inner side of reality. What men do when awake they do when asleep. Heraclitus, 540-480 b. C., Greek philosopher, Fragments A mere trifle consoles us, for a mere trifle distresses us.
Blaise Pascal, 1623-1662, French philosopher, physic and mathematician, Thoughts The Human species does not tolerate too much reality.
T. S. Eliot, 1888-1965, Anglo-American writer, in E. Morin Method V Men have always fought reality with all their strengths. Jean Servier, French writer, in E. Morin Method V Take the life-lie away from the average man and straight away you take away his happiness.
Henrik Ibsen, 1826-1906, Norwegian writer, The Wild Duck To man, as important as the technique is the creation of an imaginary world and the fabulous proliferation of myths, beliefs and religions.
E. Morin, French philosopher and sociologist, Method V There exists a universal propensity to believe in ghosts and spirits, to believe in sorcery and, yet more frequently, in the efficacy of magic and sacrifices. E. Morin, French philosopher and sociologist, Method V The illusion occurs throughout history, in all societies and all individuals. All spirits, as soon as they get out of a disillusion, are ready to fall into another one.
E. Morin, French philosopher and sociologist, Method V The archaic lived in a world inhabited with spirits, supernatural beings, fabulous legends, chimeras, miracles. Dreams were part of reality.
E. Morin, French philosopher and sociologist, Method V The myth fortifies man, because it hides from him the incomprehensibility of his destiny and because it fills up the nothingness of death.
E. Morin, French philosopher and sociologist, Method V
