Like the Pied Piper of Hamelin!
I think subjective reality is a view on the world that has the right to exist. However, I also think that the concept of SR is much deeper than the one people discuss on this forum. I believe that the world is not separate from us, that somehow we're all connected to our environment but it would takes years of meditation and studies to realize what this is all about.
Here, the people are mostly seeing the world as their personal dream and others as their projections, but this is obviously not true because if it was our dream we would be able to influence it and we can't. I think such perception does not enrich us in any way. On the contrary, we lose the ability to learn and grow if we think this is all just our dream, because what's the point?
So, to sum it up - I believe in the Conscience, but I don't believe my world is just my dream that I'm free to play with. It may be a dream, but surely not mine - and the real dreamer probably wants me to learn something.
