"Raw" sensory experiences do not make sense except in terms of unifying realities which we experience as occasioning our "raw" sensory experiences. Our "experience" of such "realities" is of a different kind than our "experience" of our "raw" sensory "experiences". We have different kinds of "experiences" and corresponding to our different kinds of experiences there are to us different kinds of realities. Our "raw" sensory experiences are one kind of reality. The "objects" which we "experience" as "causing" our "raw" sensory "experiences" are a different kind of reality. The "processes" by which such "objects" "cause" our raw sensory experiences are another kind of reality. Our "memories" of such raw sensory experiences, objects, and causes are yet additional kinds of realities. Our acceptance of each kind of reality open up and closes shut various doors to further alternative realities. We sometimes decide that realities which we have traditionally accepted as real are no longer viable realities, and they die. We sometimes wish that trouble- some realities would leave us alone, and they do not. Our powers of decision over realities are not without limit, yet they are pervasive. We may perceive that realities exist in a competitive context. If we choose to perceive in that way doors are opened and closed. Then realities are not all absolutes which exist independently of our perceptions, expectations, theories, concepts, languages, traditions, rituals, laws, conventions, etc. Realities may be perceived as we perceive living species and members thereof---as evolving in competitive contexts. Those realities survive which are fitted to their contexts. There are often alternative realities surviving side by side in a common context. Contexts do not determine realities uniquely. The same set of experiences may support alternative theories which survive as alternative realities: devils, souls, spirits personalities, egos, gods, diseases, instincts, hereditary traits, atoms, nuclei, electrons, molecules, conservation laws, enemies, friends, desires, schools, families, laws radiation, love, hate, evil, civil rights, governments, nations, stars, galaxies, black holes, industries, money, trade, credits, deficits, taboos, alienation, reconciliation, etc. Each such reality helps us make sense of and guide our experiences.
