    << I agree with answer 1 and 2 but not with the last !
    Reality is still and will be my reality !!
    The only reality we do have and will have in common is the one we see and
    experience with all of our senses. The experience of experiencing the world,
    the universe or reality for that matter will be and ought to be different
    one of the other. Our neural pathways, our external input and our internal
    output can 't be and will never be the same.
    If you say it does I 'll have no answer left I suppose, because for that
    matter we will be living in seperate realities... and I can 't see to which
    extend you will be that part of me by which I can tell it is mine.



    ( i am, because we are) that different !?
