|Reality, philosophy: it is controversial, which should be counted to reality, that is to say, the set of objects and states which occur in the world. Theories partially differ strongly regarding the definitions of facts and situations or the consideration of internal states of subjects. Thus, a situation can be described in many ways, whereby very different assumptions about the involved objects and relations come into play. See also ontology, realism, recognition, epistemology, constructivism, fact, situations, internal/external, totality, relations, simulation.|

Reality / Armstrong: past and future are as real as the present - properties must be instantiated (the principle of instantiation) i.e. there is no particular without properties ("bare particulars") - also no relations without particulars.
