In some cases, such as in your example, you are doubtless
right. But, we each see objective reality slightly
different. Most accidents, for example, happen due to
our temporary inattention to our surroundings. I am
not sure what you mean by "what does anything matter"
because surely we can have a meaningful and satisfying
life while not seeing objective reality exactly as
our neighbor sees it. Not only cultures, but families,
see the world differently. I would be hard-pressed
to say whose perception was the most accurate. And, I
don't think it matters at all.
