remembered conjectures

  • What we call “reality” represents the consciousness in which we habitually appear to participate.
  • We possess no means of verifying the actuality of what we call “reality” beyond our belief and apparent participation in it.  This lack of verification includes our own existence.
  • Experience represents methods of measuring reality.  These measurements present the “appearance” of experience to which we relate and believe to be EveryDayLife.  (Measurement tends toward tautology).
  • What we call sense perception as well as more formalized theories such as empiricism and science represent specific types of experience measurement.
  • We strengthen our attachment to what we call “real” by confusing perception (as measurement) with imposition of value as a measurement surrogate.  We tend to superimpose meaning over perceptions and construe such meaning as “reality”.
