Is there an objective reality out there of which each of us sees and lives in a different version preconditioned by nature and nurture ——— or ——— is each version a projection of how the same preconditions shape and locate our contribution to the apparently real hologram of collective consciousness, an objective landscape depicting our radiation of the seemingly internal subjective reality common to all consciousness, the way of all things?

Afterthought, while watching chickens at dawn this morning:
It's the bloody language again, for the seemingly innocent motivation of making conversation we've incised a dualism of reality between subject and object thereby making a differentiation between the nature occurring out there in the material world and the nature of the observer we suppose is encased in the meat we call our own. My always sage friend Mike reminded me of the lessons I learned reading Dancing Wu Li Masters: eastern philosophy has always understood what western physics seems loath to admit — there is no matter in what we have always considered the material world. The stuff of the universe is energy in more or less dense concentrations, the denser of which begin to develop group consciousness identity ——— but it's all the same energy which we have identified as a variety of stuff. We are one, like eyes on a potato, slicing and dicing it up because we've developed this knife with which we cannot stop chopping because we can. Language! Makin' it matter wherever you want to just be. More insidious than Visa. Maybe. Thanks RAW
