A variation of this question appeared on a mental health questionnaire I filled out once. It was in a cluster of "Do you talk to extraterrestrials?" and "Are you in cahoots with foreign governments?" types of questions.
I didn't want to be misdiagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic, but honestly, when I'm hungry and don't tell anyone, the answer is "yes." So I put that down.
They told me to quit drinking and lay off the blow.

Well R6, there is absolute truth which is what physicists and philosophers quantify and describe.
So there is concrete, absolute "reality" which can in theory persist without observers and "relative reality" which depends opon an observer (opinion). A realtive truth and an absolute truth can contradict one another and both be true at the same time.
But absolute truth is heirarchical, like ethics. So an account of a scenario can be relatively true, but there is an objective truth (what really happened).
An "opinion" is a relative truth that a person "bets" is objectice truth, based on their knwledge so far, and acknowledges as much.
"Knowing" is an opinion that one pretends is objective truth, despite any contrary evidence.

What if you're an idealist, Berkeleyan or otherwise? Or what if you're an anti-realist, in the Dummettian tradition? For both, there is no absolute reality. Your mileage may vary, of course... I'm an epistemological skeptic, though, and hew more closely to those two strains of thought.

There's a wide gap between what's normal - the idea, the perception of what's normal, what we see on television, movies, and most media - what's average - the reality.
Television and the internet have severly warped our sense of what's normal. Compassion, civility, and common sense are the victims.

R18, I'm very lonely too.
I do know how to make friends, but I don't run into enough people in the numbers of which it would take to winnow a friend or two from that number.
One really needs a cross-section of people who one runs into even to have the opportunity to make a friend.

I know first-hand that the nasty consequences attributed to heroin addiction are actually the result of the criminalisation of heroin. It was used for hundred of years before it was prohibited, even in western societies, and the world kept turning just fine.

There were no major problems attributed to heroin when it was criminalised, r25. It's fairly benign physiologically and it was affordable so there was very little crime associated with it. You could get it in beer, in cough syrups, and all sorts of preparations. It was banned because it was associated with the Chinese and the moralisers of the time didn't want white women corrupted by those yellow fiends (despite the fact Britain had gone to war with China to maintain it's opium export market there).

Benign in the sense, r29, that unadulterated heroin doesn't damage the brain or organs at all. Overdose is the only real health risk associated with it and that's a risk that increases when the drug is criminalised (variations in strength make it much more difficult to determine a safe dose). Withdrawal certainly is a bitch but it's not harmful - alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal are much more dangerous to one's health than health - so much so that alcoholics and benzo users need medical supervision to go cold turkey.
