Rest assured great thinkers of both past and present. We now know the ultimate test for measuring reality.

Charlie: Mom what’s real?

Me: I don’t know Charlie. Is your imaginary friend Luke real?

Charlie: I don’ know. I think he might be just pretend.

Me: Evidence my boy, perhaps the answer lies in evidence.
If there’s enough evidence then I say to myself, maybe this could be real.

Charlie: Well, you know what I do?

Me: Nope.

Charlie: I just say to myself, is someone driving this spaceship or is this thing on?

Sounds like a pretty bright boy you have there with a more than cogent grasp of "a reality". That's smart to consider more than one POV! Kids do it naturally until we discourage them from their intuitions. What does Luke think?
