"What's true for me is what's true for me"??
OK, my boss at the place where I worked that was run by Scientologists always used to say "it's true for you if it's true for you." Ohhhhh-kayyyy...
Does that only mean Scientologists, or does it mean everyone? Because frankly I can't see it as anything but an open invitation to solipsism and "because-I-said-so"ism...
Say I was picketing, and a fella came up to me and asked "what crimes have you committed??" Ok, well, after we get past not paying income tax on a freelance typesetting job and letting my sister have one of my prescription allergy pills, I wouldn't be able to think of any. But I'm a criminal because I oppose Scientology, according to this dude, and as a Scientologist he accepts that notion, and what's true for him is true (for him), therefore it's true (to him) that I am a criminal?
Am I "getting" this? Have I got it straight? Because the obvious and equal retort might then be something like "well, it's not true for me, therefore it's not true." So, all right, Dude could come back with "I'm a Scientologist, and you're aberrated." So, OK, says who? What if I say HE'S aberrated?
I'm getting a headache. Back in the world where reality really is real, I have a contract to type, because real estate is also, funnily enough, real.
great day... speedwell
