the final question Oshii poses is given the choice between reality and one?s perception, what do we actually choose ...
No choice, eh?

IMHO, Oshii's choice is crystal clear - we choose our perceptions over reality. The presence of the dog in Class Real solidifies this. The dog, Oshii's continual metaphor for "real" life in the hear and now disapears from reality and exists in Class Real. This in essence means Oshii has decided that real existence exists in our perceptions not the physical world.
This is again in line with Oshii's message in Ghost in the Shell: Innocence - our bodies have become obselete, and "real" exist
