Is the world objective or subjective
i wrote this in another thread but i thought it needed its own thread cuz its an important topic
and yes sideshow bob & low key lyesmith i know its not some profound original topic. Nietzsche, Schopenhauer and probably a lotta physicists have probably discussed this in far greater depth than i couldve done but i just wanna share it.

another thing i wanna expand on is how people are able to agree on these 'objective' constructs.
i'm gonna mention Platonic idealism. this is basicly that each person holds onto a perfect clear precise ideal eg the perfect tree and then he uses this prototype for other trees so he can identify them. so he uses this image of a perfect tree so he can group and identify other trees.
i agree with Plato except i dont think the prototype ideal is a perfect tree. instead i believe its an abstract blurry tree. and we use this imprecise image to identify with other trees.
and this would help humans build this made up 'objective' world. if our prototype ideals were precise we wouldnt be able to build this 'objective' world. this is cuz our subjective worlds would b incompatible. our worlds would b 2 distinct and seperate for us to experience similiar ones.
if however our prototype ideals are imprcise this would make our subjective worlds more compatible with eachother to build an overall objective world.
