By the way - the fact that Mykeru can't get out of the trap of perceptive reality any more than anyone else can, but insists that human consciousness is, somehow, individuated, relegated to utterly separate entities, and does not extend out as an attribute of the universe as a whole, is the cognitive dissonance that forces him (winky punctuation or no) to resort to fallacies such as ad hominem and assertion.
