I don't mean to imply that we create our own realities, but we do edit things a bit. Somehow we do it. We create the context, and we interpret the "Outside World" using distorted perceptual filters. Who knows how many selves we are, and to what extent each of these members of the Mob-Self force their agendas onto the poor Ego who has to interpret this stuff? What am I talking about?
And, in regard to my last post, to what extent does our projection actually affect "Reality?" There is an interplay-- the act of observing something physically changes it--read about the Observer Effect why don't you! Do the changes that each of us bring about individually also impact other observer/projectors? What if I interpret a situation to be tragic, while someone else sees it as simply benign? Does my interpretation somehow alter the situation for the other observer? Tell me!!!
