I am bewildered, to say the least, by the amount of naive anthropocentrism, which I came across reading your issues 3019 and 3020 from May 2015. It starts with an article suggesting that reality is a fiction of human consciousness. Well, reality might be a fiction of MY consciousness, but what could be so special about the consciousness of a particular group of apes that should give rise to reality collectively? What do all humans alive right now have in common that could merrit such a strange conclusion? I live with a dog, and quite frankly my conscious experience of nature, affection and social support has much more in common with his than with the one of most other humans I have ever met – not talking about those, which I have not met and will never meet, who live in totally different environments and cultures.
