Explaining vs. Explaining Away
"My usual reply ends with the phrase: "If we cannot learn to take joy in the merely real, our lives will be empty indeed." I shall expand on that tomorrow."

I would think that it is wise indeed to take joy in the merely real however I believe also that it is not a fault to enjoy things which aren't real such as stories like 'HPMOR' and 'Luminosity' as long as these don't color your perception of the world outside these stories. As long as it doesnt change the area it shouldn't affect the model but you shouldn't let its non-existance prevent you from enjoying it.
