A quote that I’ve been pondering

*“Just as the same city viewed from different directions appears entirely different … there are, as it were, just as many different universes, which are, nevertheless, only perspectives on a single one, corresponding to the different points of view.” - Gottfried Leibniz

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perspectivism Perspectivalism or perspectivism in philosophy:

There are different perspectives. There are also different eyes looking onto those perspectives. Even within ourselves, the state of mind, of our inner sight, can have massive influence on what we see in those various perspectives. The same one perspective can be seen countless different ways depending on the eyes doing the looking.

Indeed. I have begun to view our world as full of billions of individual universes, each person living in their own. At first this was very disconcerting, but I’m comfortable with this vision now.
