    I think you have confused the subjective with reality.

    And to replace reality with the subjective is the essence of superstition.
    yeah...i've never subscribed to that philosophy...i honestly believe everyone is living their own reality because everything is defined by what they know to be truth.

    What is "reality" Victor? How can we, as subjective beings, ever comprehend such? I cannot see how we'll ever know, so why bother? Subjective truth is good enough.

    Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. While most people perceive alike, there'll always be those who disagree. But I find this relaxing and melodious. Hope that you'll feel the same.

    Wrong.

    This is completely true, and we still have science. All this means is that verifying whether or not something is absolutely true is impossible.

    And it is.

    Science is about maximizing predictive ability. It's not about perfectly predicting everything.
