What I'm stating doesn'trequire simplification . Each one of us sees the world in our own way. The world I see belongs to me and there are no others

Your perception exists only within your mind. Nowhere else. It is conceptual, and is only a tiny, tiny slice of what you believe that you are actively
perceiving as being actual. It doesn't possess a deep complexity or fullness of reality, as it would if it were an actual universe. It's an artificial
image of a universe that only contains what your mind has decided to be pertinent - in the moment - to your own interpretation of what that image of a
universe needs to contain in that moment. It's a very flimsy version of a universe that exists only to serve your immediate needs before becoming part
of the internal historical context that does actually exist as integral to your own historical contextual identity.
You create it, yes, but it's not a progressively developing construct in its own right. It exists as a finite series of quantum snapshot
interpretations of what does - in fact - exist as real and as part of the larger reality confine that contains you, as one unique point of view, along
with everything else and every other observer that also provides its own point of view. There's no specific plan or reason for you and your point of
view, or for anyone and their point of view. It's just the natural ramification of the existence of sentient minds that share a reality confine
together. That, and the fact that an intelligent, sentient mind will - eventually - begin to wonder what the hell is going on, as it picks its way
though the litter that reality provides by progressive default as the furniture of existence that it ultimately is.
Occam's Razor. Take the complexities and convolutions away when you can, and accept the least implausible explanation as the explanation that's most
likely. We, the ones with the imagination, are the source of all the drama and the unnecessary complications that we imagine to exist.
