Illusionism: Intellectual Protection Racket #37

Welcome to yet another way to tell people to just shut up about philosophical issues beyond the predictable formulaic Loser Dude remarks in social situations.

If what is real or true is merely an illusion, is the illusion itself real and true? How could that ever be detected?

What is a person doing when they assert the truth or reality of illusion?

This is similar to the idiotic rhetoric thrown around about everything being a simulation, and is equally bogus for the exact same reason: fatal self-reference error.

Again, the Magic Question is:

How does that universal claim impact its own truth?
