When you look at it most reflection is projection as is most perception. Most people are traveling on Spaceship-Moi-Meme. This particular state of affairs has been underscored by the phenomenon of gaslighting in politics. Remember the Freedom Marchers in the South. In that climate a segregationist could claim his freedom was being taken away. Ironically it's close to deconstruction which claims truth cannot exceed its cultural referents. Does everyone see the same red in Matisse's "Red Studio?" Or the blue that Yves Kleun bathed his human paint brushes in? If you fight fire with fire you'll  answer "not to be " to Hamlet. Camus famously said the only real philosophical question was suicide. An affirmation of suicide may sound like an oxymoron, but what difference does anything make, if interiority ends up being the only reality one can know? Esse est percipi, "to be us to be perceived," but who is doing the watching?
