If the NORM ( The vast Majority ) believes with
all its might that they are all GREEN OCTOPI, and
in reality from ( ANOTHER's point of view ) they
are human, that one person's opinion ( based on his own logic ) would not designate the entire
race human. Your point actually helps to complete
my own. It works the other way around. Definitions
are superficial and reality is in the eye of the beholder, no matter how rediculous it may seem
to the minority. If Octopi were intelligent enough
to consciously examine their own existence, and in that context would deem us Aliens from Outerspace, we could not disprove that. There's NOTHING to disprove. It's an accepted belief.
They're in the water ( which 75% of Earth's surface is ) ( the majority ) and we're outside.
We're strange and their not. We're aliens and they're civilized. Without conscious thought there
would be nothing else. That may sound elementary, but when you think about it, since there is nothing to experience it, it REALLY isn't there.
Although the particles are doing their job, and
stars are being born and such, they really aren't
there due to the fact that there is nothing to observe them. The tree in the forest deal is just like this. What I just said, AND the TREE deal are
both PARADOXES, but as intelligent beings we know that we cannot DISREGARD one EPISODE for the EASIER one to accept ( i.e The tree actually making noise is easier to accept than it not in the light of physics and understanding )
Answer : The TREE did and DID not make noise when
it fell. (This is true if there is absolutely nothing else in the universe to observe it, which is impossible and possible at the same time )* Another Paradox , but we'll get to that one later *
Just like beliefs held by people. IF everyone on Earth but two people believed that a car was a giraffe and that it would eat them at night while they slept, then it would be TRUE and FALSE at the same time. Depends on where you're sleeping.
Haha, lil joke. THINK about it, really think
