- No two people can experience the same event.
Proof for statement
If two people interact ("share an event") then really, there were two interactions:
Person A -----------> Perceived interaction
Person B -----------> Perceived interaction
Say two people kiss. The illusion would be that it was a shared event. The reality would be that there were two separate kisses; the one perceived by person A, and the one perceived by person B.
Here are variables that can be different in each perceived interaction (the kiss):
- Thoughts going on in one's head
- Feeling on the lips/teeth
- Unrelated physical feelings (feeling of clothes on one's body, shoes on one's feet, etc.)
- Stress on the body (being held up, holding someone up)
- Images that are seen (partner's eye color, hair color, etc.)
All of these variables could be very different for each person, and since I would think that you could list out an almost infinite amount of these variables, how could two people ever be truly matched on all of them?
Is it possible for two people to truly share the same event?
Is it possible for two people to truly interact?
Is interacting with someone the same as sharing an event with someone?
