    Default Is there ANYTHING that everyone can agree on?

    Murder is wrong? In some instances it's justifiable.

    The earth is round? I'm sure there are still some flat-earthers out there somewhere.

    1+1=2? I'm sure there must be someone out there who won't agree with this.

    So, is there anything that everyone can agree on?

    1 + 1 = 2 only is true if many underpinning axioms are taken as true. The universe is like a web where SOME people agree on the actuality of events but not their interpretation. Many disagree about the occurance of the events themselves however (with varying degrees of direct or indirect evidence for their claims). I think truth is often found at the interstices of where these matrices overlap. However, that is just a "rule of thumb" if you will. So no, unfortunately no one truly agrees about anything with everyone else in the world. That's a good thing! Reality really is that fucking complex and when you ignore signals from your environment to only tune in on particular ones you may focus in on them in a more... translateable manner, but really that's boring and untimately untrue because no other set of sensors in the universe is going to pick up on the same holistic information field that you will.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I think we can all agree that there is nothing everyone will agree on.

    I don't think there is anything. You can be come pretty darn close to 100% on some things but never exactly 100%

    Agreed, shame it's not practical or feasable though. So we'll just have to settle for the ideal in itself.
