It's as cdn2wheeler said.
When I use the term 'reality' I mean the underlying substance which exists regardless of what I believe about it.
When you use that term I see it as 'subjective interpretation of experience' with no reference to reality at all.
In other words, our definitions of the word 'reality' are different.
