That there is a larger order to life which we play a rather insignificant role in. We slowly have our magical view of the world sucked straight out of us. We reach a tipping point where we finally succumb to thinking that an objective view of reality is the only way to properly function in society. To view the world through subjective reality is no more full proof than objective reality. There are flaws in either view. The benefit of having seen life through multiple lenses affords many benefits though.
You reach a point where you see that life is not about proving facts but shifting perspectives. This is because many things can be both false and true at the same time. Your desperate attempt to disprove something to prove something else you can't prove is a wasted effort. Whether you believe the world is shifting around you or you are shifting to meet your needs it does not matter. The results will ultimately speak for themselves.
I did not even read past the first sentence.

You forgot, they are only figments of my conciousness manifesting.
So where did THEY get the concepts from to force them on me?
Because in reality, in Steves theory, your just saying I made myself believe in gravity since I made my parents.
So what your saying is I made my self believe in objective reality.
And that will just lead you back to my question What made me believe in objective reality in the first place?
