I think it’s awesome that we can sit next to someone we’ve known forever, experience the very same thing, and then describe two completely different realities. What's really amazing is that we can then choose up sides, and try to decide with great passion who is right, and who is wrong. Reality is a slippery slope, and when I was pressed to define it long ago, I said, “Reality is what most people agree to at any given point in time.” You know, like the earth used to be flat! Reality is only real in isolation, or by consensus. And when it comes to reality, consensus is very hard to achieve. As for me, I like my reality in isolation. I mean, I like my little world of positive illusion, and I respect your right to embrace yours. It takes a lot of grace and intellectual honesty to know that reality isn’t real. It never has been, and it never will be, so don’t get too hung up about it. I suggest we all just relax, and enjoy one another. Someday, we’ll talk about truth.
