Ideas About Reality

With our concept-making apparatus called "mind" we look at reality through the ideas-about-reality which our cultures give us.  The ideas-about-reality are mistakenly labeled "reality" and unenlightened people are forever perplexed by the fact that other people, especially other cultures, see "reality" differently.  It is only the ideas-about-reality which differ.  Real (capital-T True) reality is a level deeper than is the level of concept.

-- Malaclypse the Younger and Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst, in Principia Discordia, Psycho-Metaphysics (1965)
