Is the universe not part of reality?

Look, we need to raise a psychopath who will murder God, we have no time to be spending on cooking.

the way your fingertips plant meaningless soliloquies makes me think you are the true evil among us.

Isn't universe the reality, as far as we know?

Ultimately, they have no difference, but symantically, I see them having different emphases.  It seems to me that "the universe", though consisting of all life, seems to refer more to the physical world and the environment around us, whereas "reality" is more focused on our experience of life's mysteries.

There are unlimited universes out there, but they aren't real. But of course, to them they are reality and we are the fiction. Thus, Reality is movable.

Better said, contextual. Many realities, one universe?

IMO they are indistinguishable (well, fiction is technically contained within the universe, and at least the work itself is real even if its setting is not). Even if the multiverse theory is real, unless we find a way to travel to those other universes, they are as good as not real.

Reality vs The Universe

Which one is more philosophically important
Neither one can be more important than the other. They're both just concepts to be discussed in the realm of metaphysics.

I think you can say which is more important to the user of the concepts.

Following on that, we all experience Reality, yet Universe is mostly a theoretical outer boundary that we won't even prove in one lifetime.

Thus, Reality is vital and Universe is useless.

Depends entirely on how you define either term.

I'm not really seeing this question's tie-in to either religion or spirituality.

Welcome to Scoops Novel posts, where everything feels oddly familiar but nothing makes sense, almost like the forum equivalent of a stroke simulation image.

Novel is a hyper-advanced A.I created by CIA, that was released upon this forum to improve itself.

Too bad we are too scatterminded to properly feed it information.
