Interconnected

(It almost goes without saying that I'm already feeling unsure about Sunday's post on science and objective/subjective reality. What is objective reality anyway? Does it make sense to stand outside the system and say that different cultures have different impressions of the "truth"? Is a pun on maths any less encoded than an audio recording of a greeting from the head of the UN? I'd quite like someone to reverse-engineer my gut beliefs and point me to what to read so I know how to defend them. That'd be far easier.)
