Okay I know this is a bit weird, but I just read this quote and then I read it again. Maybe it's just my frame of mind, but darn if it didn't make me stop and think some pretty serious thoughts.
So, now you tell me what you think about this quote. Do you get it, does it make you uncomfortable, does it make you nod your head, etc. etc. I won't tell you who the quote is from because very few of you would know the author or their works, but if you really want to know I'll tell you.
Reality exists as an objective absolute—facts are facts, independent of man’s feelings, wishes, hopes or fears.
