Reality is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or might be imagined.
A major aspect of assessing reality is one's ability to think abstractly. Can the Habs' scoring woes be attributed to the coaching staff struggling with this abstract thinking?
Any discussion about reality is incomplete without talking about the idea of existence. What does it mean to exist? Does math hold the key into expressing the existence of things seen and unseen? Are we even here right now? What is life?
I think in the end, we can all agree there are many layers, or dimensions, to reality. How we perceive an event may be different from someone else depending on our beliefs, attitudes and desires. So, when it comes to the question as to whether or not the Habs are a successful franchise, it would depend on who you ask.
