dnwun, this should probably be in the main forum, but anyway:
I have to ask myself...how I can prevent any of these people from ever serving on a jury.
Would you prefer to be judged by people who avoid thinking?
Just the fact that reality is such a hot topic worries me, because reality is nothing but ones perception of events.
Are you sure?
Now I realize that obviously, this "reality" effects our world constantly, but I would feel more secure in knowing that other persons who are analytically inclined, would make an effort to understand actuality.
Why did you make this distinction between reality and actuality? Are you sure that when people talk about reality, they aren't talking about actuality?
Actuality, basically what is really going on without personal issues coloring our reality of it, and how it all interacts with our world.
I see. You use the word "actuality" to argue an externalist view, and the word "reality" to simultaneously argue an internalist view. You do know, these views are incompatible. Playing with language doesn't change that: reality and actuality are the same.
Maybe you find it pointless to argue these things, but I'd rather be able to notice inconsistencies and uncertainties in your four sentences than not.
A mindful man needs few words.
