Context

Otherness notwithstanding: 

context (n.) Look up context at Dictionary.com
early 15c., from Latin contextus "a joining together," originally past participle of contexere "to weave together," from com- "together" (see com-) + texere"to weave, to make" (see texture (n.)).

PR’s ontology class simplification is
Context is just another distinction .  There is nothing outside the way you hold your distinctions. (It is all just the cosmic ooze & chaos) ← 
OR in the above etymology a joining together other distinctions.
Objective World is a context a lot of us have which says that our perceptions are not all just us. Nowadays there are some who are trying to destroy that context for fun & profit. Politics is full of contexts : Socialism, Patriotism ….America etc – essentially politics is all about creating & destroying contexts. More about that later under a post on Principles.  Maybe otherness is just in another’s mind never need the objective world.

well yeah, politics is all about controlling the narrative … or controlling the context … same thing … see KiK.

what is in another’s mind is usually otherness to me … er, unless, of course, i can hear their total honesty.  disbelieving in “what is outside the way you hold your distinctions” is the same as disbelieving in the objective world ← so it is all you to have your fun with. 
Keep on making up your own words & your own definitions of existing ones, but don’t be surprised if nobody else wants to use them.laughing Yours not mine:

Nate also likes to graffiti others’ stuff & others’ property. Such an attitude is politics as usual . (SNAFU)

I can certainly attest that “as soon as i was  born, I was given a religion, a nationality, and a race.  It did not take me long to choose that it did not define me … and to find that i had no need to defend it at all. 
Mr. Wallaby 2016-04-17 13:44:19 [item 20806#51287]
Yep, you went in the Me(I) direction & opposed it instead. To oppose something is to invoke it anyway pondering LOA says “if you know what you don’t want you know what you want ...” laughing

i do not understand the ego thingey that you have foisted into  the kontext of my comment.   I expressed  a first experience just so that it would be a true story … so that i would not need to presume things for all of humaity …  and strangely not in opposition to the meaning of the meme … rather in support of it.  Unlike you, i do not defend the religion of my father … i do not get my definitions and identity from such as the meme also hints is not necessary. 
Well this being my thought – the foreign ego being yours – maybe try harder to grok the nature of the tao & know that the opposition of something just creates more of the thing from the other pole of the duality. You get your identity by your oppositions. Come up with something new & totally different to which your integrity speaks fully , maybe just be at peace & silence.

Fun with numbers.  Lets say the average number of synonyms for a context-word at power.thesaurus is ~ 100 & lets say that the average post uses ~ 3 dubious word-meanings (misunderstood words) then the number of combinations of 3 out of 100 = 161,700 different ways to interpret the post. laughing
