Reality is just shared perception.
We have no way of knowing that anyone else exists in
fact ... all other people could be mental constructs of
our own.
That's a selfish philosophy trying to justify relativism.
That relativistic psyche-babble nonsense may sound smart, but it is clear that common sense went right out the window.
Just because we don't "perceive" something, doesn't mean that it does not exist.
What is intelligence without wisdom?
