Okay, so:

You answered "What is real" with "Everything and nothing."

And you said nothing means that which we do not know.

So are you saying that which we do not know (nothing) is real, or not real?

Both because we don't know if it will be known to us when (if) we get to know it.

So, you're saying "Things we do not know about are both real and not real."

Um... something can't both be real and not be real. It can be either one or the other. And if it's not real, then it's impossible to know about it either way (well, you could, I suppose, but that's called being delusional).

Because we don't know them wecan't determine if they're real or not.

So you're not really saying that "everything and nothing is real," you're saying that we don't know if something is real or not if we don't know about it?

Generally I defined what I mean with everything and nothing.
