I've been putting some thought into this as I go through different forums and argue with different people. One thread in particular was about how people you know react to a specific conspiracy. I noticed a common theme. Everyone seemed to only know people who agreed with them on the subject.
Would it be far-reaching to say that as social organisms we attract other organisms that think alike? After all, those who think differently don't often become close friends.
If true, how can this be applied to our reality? Should we seek out people with different opinions in an effort to understand them? Surely my reality is different than theirs if they see things so differently.
Anyway, those are my thoughts, however scrambled. Tell me what you think.

I don't feel I do at all.
I have increased the numbers of people whom I think live in the same realm as me, but it's still an ill fit.
I go with the flow though, since it seems to be just me, and just see what happens.
Sorry if this isn't close to what you meant....
