    << But just a question here !
    Are we really part of the same reality !?
    Which reality is that !?
    I know people who does not understand that the sun is a star in the
    universe !! And you are trying to persuade me that we are all part of
    the same reality !?
    There are people living apart from this reality where we live in !!

    And to the comment that our individual models are only in part true I
    wish to say, no I don 't think so, they are from our individual bias true
    as they ought to be. We have no other perspective of reality than our
    own. We can 't hold the whole of reality in the palm of our hand.
    Reality is my reality !!



    ( I am, because we are) as real we can get
