Reality is not the <em>things</em> you experience, it is your experience of those things.  Your reality is not mine.  I will never experience what you do and you will never experience what I do.  I can only acknowledge that your experience, for you, is real.  I can accept that. We are different.

there is a difference
I don't Force others to do as I do
but there as those who will force others to accept them
or pay a consequence, be monetary or other forms of retaliation

want an example?

I once had a individual on MY land banging pots & pans to spook the deer away.
either they were anti-hunters or some sort of PETA fruitcake
didn't matter, my index an middle finger went into his nose holes an I literately dragged him off MY land.
the **** brought the tribal police to me
we had a good laugh while the **** was even more pissed he didn't get fulfillment by me being arrested for assult

and there the difference

Agreed. Regardless of what is factual, we each have our own reality. It's like the movie The Matrix, whichever choice Neo had made, his experience would have been his reality.

Very true. Sometimes I think what we see in life depends a lot upon what we're searching for and hoping to find.

No disputing that. Any two or more people can hear, see, experience the exact same thing, and have a way different reality of it..

Maybe to a certain degree ... but some experiences are universal.
Gravity, for example.
Or that a certain frequency produces a certain light.
