This might not be the way that you are talking about real, but let me throw this out.
I claim, according to a certain argument of Sartre's, that I know you are a real mind and not just a human acting automata. I look into a doll's eyes, nothing. I look into a dog's eyes, almost nothing. I look into your eyes and immediately I feel seen. I look away almost in fear, almost as if I have just seen myself. I I do not know that you are real, tell me, why am I so affected by your gaze?
