    Yes, you have different information about this Canyon. And yet, with similar skill sets, you could draw a picture of it that would be highly similar to the one drawn by someone else, with their different information.

    Of course the 'impressions' formed are different. There is no thing that is a copy of any information in individual brains.

    How can you hold the 'identical information' theory so highly when you yourself have shown us its disproof?
