We live in a world of perception and interpretation
that seems normal to us. We know how things "are." As a result,
we have a sense of what is real and what is not. People, situations,
and objects in our world have qualities that are "given." These
qualities are generally accepted and rarely questioned. We also
regard ourselves in ways that we seldom question beyond the obvious.
Within our self-referential framework, we think we know who we are,
how we feel, and what we want.
Our normal world is structured and solidified
through our words, understanding, and beliefs. The resulting worldview
is "known" and held in place by unconscious agreement within our
own rationale and with others. As we come to understand this worldview,
we will see it as a product of our unexamined operating system,
and its concealed logic.
