You are absolutely right. This is what's called the 'relative truth.' An 
absolutely correct relative truth. Maybe when we get sick of our 
particular truths we'll get out of the closets into the marketplace of 
ideas to find something in common. I see it as a major driving force behind 
discussion groups like this one. So what's going on here is beautiful and 
appropriate. The only thing I'm concerned about is how not to lose my 
sense of humor and and not to allow the sense of my own importance to get 
the upper hand. Your help is appreciated.
