Common truth is found through the collective
Things like science is established on the basis of collective judgement and belief.
Reason doesn’t help us reach undeniable ‘truths’, but gives our most reliable method for having the largest amount of people reach the same conclusions.
What we deem real often has to be checked with disconnected others as evidence of our own version.

We’re all hallucinating all the time, including right now. It’s just that when we agree about our hallucinations, we call that reality.
