Reality are the things in life that are commonly observed and verified to exist. Things that are consistent and not random. Something that is perceived as real and is physically experienced by the senses.

What ever Reality is, it's Freaking Brilliant! 

Truman ShowReal is something being or occurring in fact or actuality; having verified existence; not illusory. No less than what is stated; worthy of the name.  Not to be taken lightly.  Capable of being treated as fact.  Being or reflecting the essential or genuine character of something. Of, relating to, or representing an amount that is corrected for inflation. Having substance or capable of being treated as fact; not imaginary.  (of property) fixed or immovable.  Any rational or irrational number. Coinciding with reality. Not Fantasy

Reality is all of your experiences that determine how things appear to you. The state of the world as it really is rather than as you might want it to be. Not influenced by Conformity

Empirical is the knowledge or source of knowledge acquired by means of the senses, particularly by observation and experimentation.

Real Life describes actual events, people, activities and interactions. "IRL" stands for "in real life" VR
Consensus Reality is generally agreed to be reality, based on a consensus view.
Construct (philosophy of science) where the existence of the thing may be said to depend upon a subject's mind. This contrasts with a real object, where existence does not seem to depend on the existence of a mind.

What is Life?What's behind the Curtain?
Being is an extremely broad concept encompassing objective and subjective features of reality and existence.
What is Time?
How much do we Know?

What is Reality? Things that we can, to the best of our knowledge, figure out and define by ways of Scientific Research and Experience. Using this particular method we cannot include personal beliefs, personal opinions or theory’s because these things cannot be easily confirmed. Though Religious Beliefs, Theory’s and personal opinions are essential in keeping our minds open, we should always have areas of research that stick to what definitions we know using the knowledge that we can confirm. This will help minimize confusion and misunderstandings. You don't have to know Physics or know the inner workings of an atom to help explain Reality, because the deeper you go, the farther away you will become to what is known. Not to say that these journeys are a waste of time. On the contrary we should always have as many people looking at as many possibilities as we can. Multiple Dimensions, Holograms and Religious Beliefs should never be ignored. And of course you can never be fully aware of everything that there is in this world. But at the least you should try to be aware of as many things as possible, and at the same time, confirm these things with as many people as possible. So the first thing to do is to define what criteria will be used to measure reality. Then get as many people you can to answer theses questions and thus end up with some kind of consensus for a basic definition for the word reality. Reality is best understood using some form of confirmation. Do you see what I see? Do you understand the way I understand? We cannot use one set of eyes to explain Reality. It’s not “Will it still be there if I’m not there to look at it?” Of course it will be. What do you think? You’re the only one who’s looking? And after all that, Reality is something that is continually evolving, so what might be considered reality today may not be reality tomorrow. Reality is not always a constant or is reality something that you can always be Aware of. Are there two realities?

"Kids spend too much time fantasying and day dreaming, and not enough time learning and experiencing, just like the adults."

Reality is a word to describe what is, and what may happen in the future. Humans have many methods for measuring and predicting what is, and what might happen. Reality was here before humans existed, because cause and effect has been measured in fossils of life forms predating humans. Don't confuse consciousness with reality. Because just being aware does not mean that you are living in reality. And don't think that you know what reality is, because reality for humans is based on what we have learned so far about our reality. So human reality is evolving and expanding as we learn more, thus reality will never stay totally the same for humans. Though reality looks weird and unpredictable at times, we know that the more we learn about reality, the less weird reality becomes, and the more predictable reality becomes. No matter how many dimensions that you can perceive, or what time scale or size scale you use to compare things too, you are only measuring reality, you are not totally defining what reality is. Even though there are an infinite amount of possibilities, this does not stop humans from using the knowledge that we have learned so far to measure what reality is today. And when we can confirm our reality with other people, we know that everything is not just in our minds. People who are blind or deaf still have similar realities to people who can see and hear. This is because humans have other methods for measuring reality, like using touch, taste, smell and feelings, as well as having other people helping them measure reality. So everyone has the ability to learn, and thus, everyone has other ways of constructing a reality. Even though each person experiences reality differently from one person to the next, this does not change the reality of the situation. Reality is learning about what our current state is. You can pretend that you don't live in reality, but that does not change reality, it only changes how you experience reality. We don't change reality, We change, as we learn more about what our reality is at this current time, but not necessarily what reality will be like tomorrow. Reality is learning, learning is reality. You can say that we can change reality, but we are not changing reality, we are changing what we have learned about what reality is, or what it's going to be. When we die, reality will still be here. Because when we see other people die, this does not change reality. It may change our experience with reality, but it will not change reality as a whole. Reality is learning, learning is reality.

Pragmatism rejects the idea that the function of thought is to describe, represent, or mirror reality. Instead, pragmatists consider thought an instrument or tool for prediction, problem solving and action. Pragmatists contend that most philosophical topics—such as the nature of knowledge, language, concepts, meaning, belief, and science—are all best viewed in terms of their practical uses and successes. The philosophy of pragmatism “emphasizes the practical application of ideas by acting on them to actually test them in human experiences.

When we use the word reality, we are not 100 percent defining something, because nothing is 100 percent definitive, and there is no full 100 percent guarantee for complete accuracy. But in order to make things easy and less complicated, we use labels as a tool to make communication more effective and more efficient. You can still get philosophical about reality if you want, but only when it's necessary. If we want to have a mutual understanding, we need to use a universal definition that helps us communicate. We are not saying that this particular definition is definitive and that there are no other variations, because there are other variations, but we only need them for certain situations when someone has difficulty understanding, or wants to express a concern, or, when new knowledge and information has been discovered that would require us to update our definition of Reality, or any other word for that matter. 

"Having no guarantee doesn't mean that you don't have any control."

"What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality."  - Plutarch

A person's Reality is closely related to how many questions that they can logically answer. For Example: Knowing you need water to live, Knowing you need food to live, Knowing the earth orbits the sun, and things of this nature. Things that we have confirmed and can be repeated in testing, a consensus of information and knowledge. But Popularity is not always a good measurement for Accuracy on how certain words are understood, because Reality does not have a 'one meaning fits all' because it is so closely related to an individuals own Perception , or education. So Reality has different meanings to different people. So the word 'Reality' cannot be used on its own. Reality must be defined by the person using the word Reality so they are understood what they are saying when they use the word Reality in a sentence. 

Corporeal the physical substance or matter that has rest mass and (usually) also volume.

"We may all be Blind and we may all be Fools, but we have clearly shown that we all have the ability to Learn. So even if we cannot see what is real to us now, or if we do not have the necessary information that allows us to fully understand what we see, we will eventually, if we keep learning."

"The 2015 film called the Room is a good example how reality can be shaped by our experiences and from our lack of knowledge."  "Everyone lives in a Room, it's just that some people have a bigger room, which some never leave."

"You can create your own reality to a certain point, the point where you either know or don't know."

The world exists ‘out there’ independent of us. But ignorance distorts reality, and ignorance also distorts the definition of
reality.   Perceptual Evolution (PDF)

There's the "reality is what you make it" and then there's "the reality that is not of your making."

"You can live in your own reality, but learning to confirm your reality with others helps you to confirm at least some of the world, otherwise you're doing nothing but guessing."  Reality Quotes

"Escaping reality is only temporary, You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today."

The only way to have any kind of consensus on what Reality is to have some kind of universal test that would help form a meaning on what the major populations define the word reality to be.

Objective Reality means the state or quality of being true even outside of a subject's individual biases, interpretations, feelings, and imaginings. Valid
Subjectivity is something that has been variously defined by sources. Three common definitions include that subjectivity is the quality or condition of: Something being a subject, narrowly meaning an individual who possesses conscious experiences, such as perspectives, feelings, beliefs, and desires. Something being a subject, broadly meaning an entity that has agency, meaning that it acts upon or wields power over some other entity (an object). Some information, idea, situation, or physical thing considered true only from the perspective of a subject or subjects.
Subjectivism is our own mental activity is the only unquestionable fact of our experience and that knowledge is merely subjective and that there is no external or objective truth.
Subject (philosophy) is a being who has a unique consciousness and/or unique personal experiences, or an entity that has a relationship with another entity that exists outside of itself (called an "object"). A subject is an observer and an object is a thing observed.
Allegory of the Cave was presented by the Greek philosopher Plato in his work the Republic (514a–520a). Plato has Socrates describe a gathering of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall from things passing in front of a fire behind them, and they begin to give names to these shadows. The shadows are as close as the prisoners get to viewing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall do not make up reality at all, for he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners.
Quasi is having some resemblance. Partly, to some degree, partly similar.
Qualia is considered to be individual instances of subjective, conscious experience, like the pain of a headache, the taste of wine, or the perceived redness of an evening sky. As qualitative characters of sensation, qualia stand in contrast to "propositional attitudes".
Umwelt meaning "environment" or "surroundings", the "biological foundations that lie at the very epicenter of the study of both communication and signification in the human [and non-human] animal".
Reality Tunnel with a subconscious set of mental filters formed from his or her beliefs and experiences, every individual interprets the same world differently, hence "Truth is in the eye of the beholder", "Is truth in the eye of the beholder?"
Consensus Reality is that which is generally agreed to be reality, based on a consensus view.
Reality Distortion Field describes how the aliens created their own new world through mental force.

Physics Observation Flaws
Quantum Mechanics concerned with processes involving atoms and photons.
Occam's Razor "the simplest explanation is usually the correct one", meaning the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected. To be able to explain a phenomena by the simplest hypothesis possible.
Philosophical Realism is the belief that some aspects of reality are ontologically independent of our conceptual schemes, perceptions, linguistic practices, beliefs, etc.
Plane Esotericism a plane other than the physical plane is conceived as a subtle state of consciousness that transcends the known physical universe.
Core (game theory) is the set of feasible allocations that cannot be improved upon by a subset.

What reality are you creating for yourself? Isaac Lidsky: (video and interactive text)
What the Bleep Do We Know!? 2004 (video on hulu)  Wiki 

In order to break free from the box that you're in, you first have to realize that there is a box, second, you have to know what is outside the box.

How real does something have to be, in order to be? Reality is not definitive. All we can do is share the same beliefs on what reality is. You alone can not totally and accurately define reality, because you have nothing to compare your reality too. That is why we need each other. Together we form reality. But when we are separated, reality becomes skewed. So we must reaffirm our realities by communicating more.

Singularitarianism is not going to change our reality, that is the reality that is defined by the laws of nature, it will only make it easier for us to control and to adapt to our reality, which will make life a lot more enjoyable for everyone, and also, it will make our possibilities almost limitless. Superintelligence must be defined by humans first in order to recreate Artificial Intelligence. Technologies are a responsibility that only intelligent people can manage effectively. So Ignorance is our biggest problem.
