I think you're missing my point. There are two different processes going on when we experience anything. The first is the actual sensory stimuli. The second is the interpretation that we give it. The interpretation is based on accumulated experience (memories). All experience is subjective. No two people can have the same experience. We share thoughts with each other and when another's thought is similar to ours we accept or reject. This is how it is. Value is something arbitrary to the user, it is not inherent in objects.Puerlife wrote:Well if you are presenting yourself as a cautionary tale I'm not buying it--your collection looks pretty good from here.
The quest for the best is an idea. There is really no best. It's a way to entertain yourself and spend money. I'm not saying don't buy anything or don't experiment. I am saying that we could be more aware of what we are actually doing and how easily influenced we can become by others.
