Objective reality as we all (to some degree) know it is a product of myriad overlapping subjective realities as each of us know it; and each of these subjective realities is in turn a product of metaphysical reality none of us knows in any normal sense of knowledge.
If we are insufficiently alert our objectively-tempered subjective truth seems for all the world to be an imperfectly but adequately known objective reality that faithfully represents metaphysical reality.
The hardest thing for a human is not mistaking oneself for God. Most of us fail at this task and succumb to apotheosis.
Humility is a hard-won insight. Self-humiliation is a grotesque counterfeit.
