First of all who possessed the Francis I was having a discussion with about metaphysical energy, and turned him into a ranting anti-Muslim fanatic. That guy and this guy surely cannot be the same person??? Second, that first guy I was talking to would have known that 'reality' is an illusion. There is no one reality. Or more specifically, we humans all see it differently from everyone else. Each of our realities is a thought structure created by our own experiences, thought processes, presuppositions and upbringing. Yes we can make basic assumptions about the reality we live in; the more we move away from that, the more we need to be aware of our limitations built in by the human condition.
