Getting real

It is often said, usually glibly, that perception is reality. If we assume that's true, at least from a perspective of personal truth if not empirical, then if I perceive something false to be true, the effect of that something on me is the same as it would be if that something was true, yes?

But if I recognise that this truth is only my perception and not substantiated, presumably that lessens the effect to some degree? So, not that it matters but...

effect(truth(perception(x))) <= effect(truth(empirical(x)))


"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." (Albert Einstein)
