Yes...

Well said.

>> Putin has a LOT of....flexible truths ... surrounding him. <<

I doubt he realizes there is such a thing as objective fact.

Re: Yes...

Well... Kant says there Kan't be an *objective* reality, because we Kan't get out of our own heads ... but certainly Putin's reality varies radically from consensus.....

Re: Yes...

I imagine that must be very limiting for people who actually have that restriction. Conversely I had to be reminded that most people spend their whole lives inside only one person's head -- their own -- and therefore find it confusing when an author skips around multiple viewpoints in a story.

Re: Yes...

Oh, *right*.

Hmmm.

You're still, absent serious arcana, stuck with the same wetware (camera body) ... But you *can* swap personality lenses....

Okay, thanks for the perspective. This needs sleeping on...

So I shall. :)

Re: Yes...

I am stuck with the wetware, when I am wearing it; I can't readily get another body in this world without abandoning this one. I am not stuck IN this body. I can go elsewhere and shift my shape as easily as ever. Yes, this makes an enormous difference in how I think.

It's also a key reason why I am so damn hard to fool: I am not limited to locally accessible knowledge. I have ulterior sources.
