How can philosophy (the overarching structure of your thoughts) not play in
the creation of any of your indiviual thoughts? i.e. Your decision to wait
on the traffic light is influenced by your belief that reality is objective,
and that the truck about to smash you is in fact "real". Everything
ultimatly comes back down to philosophy, its the base you operate from.
