WARNING - This is a Tangent

Because some think it is completely impossible to divorce the question of this poll from politics, and many of those assume that human caused climate change is not only a hoax but essentially a tool for a Socialist takeover, at least in the US, I thought I 'd post a link to an interesting political/economic converstaion.

See it here --- Is America's future Socialist or Capitalist? ---

Yep. Too little. Too Late.

Talking

Sweet-looking ride; like cranking up the volume on a high-end stereo system—voom!

Some technology moves real fast and some like plants soaking up the rays don't... free trade has had nothing to do with progress that's an excuse if you ask me.

Like when the argument came up in the religious megathread about how much music* religion has brought to us. It still would be there without religion in fact drugs has brought us more music and ironically religions?

Reality is not open to interpretation but we don't care!

Who says?

How does anyone know what "reality" is without interpretation?

Orson Welles' infamous 1938 "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast caused so many problems because people failed to interpret it as fiction. Conversely, some people today fail to interpret the dangers of opioids as reality, causing themselves and other great harm.

Reality always has to be interpreted.

I understand the irony but at some point some of us grow up‽.

While this is flirting with Off Topic it does apply since it is discussing the difference between Reality and Perception. There is a valid reason why Plato and Aristotle view reality very differently but yet both having a glimpse of the same Reality. WE only perceive the world with five very limited senses which implies interpretation but just as a Black and White movie still tells us a story we understand about a colorful world,we can deduce the Big Picture pretty accurately but at the same time our senses can be deceived... even willfully twisted and spun around.

Senior citizens wish they were young
Cold hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colors from our sight
Red is gray and yellow white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion
While subjectively this is true, objectively we can be wrong... even dead wrong.

If I may follow in your subthread of questionable topicality, are you sure we only have five? What about our sense of balance? Isn't it a separate sense? What about our ability to sense the ambient temperature? Isn't that different than touch?

"Scientists say" we have 14 to 20 senses. Holy cow.

BTW, I appreciate your choice of music, enorbet.

Congratulations, you caught me in a gross generalization I made in the interest of brevity and remaining focused on the "limited" modifier part. I didn't really want to get into just how limited not only the ranges of our senses but our ability to make sense out any perception but it is an awfully good point that furthers the concept that interpretation is a given, but all living beings do rather well within those limitations or they wouldn't be still living.

Regarding the music my tastes are wider than anyone I know. I lost an audio collection that weighed well over a metric ton in a tragic accident.
