"Why do you bring up direct personal experience as an argument in a discussion board. As if I say Santa Claus exists people on here will believe it."
Because direct personal experience is the only way to know anything for sure.
Otherwise all there will be is arguments. Santa Claus did exist. He was a man of God who lived in Europe and distributed presents to children and food and clothes to the needy. Today he has been transformed into a legendary figure to delight children and express the Christmas spirit even though we all know its make-believe through the DIRECT EXPERIENCE of making it up.
"Maybe Paulsen's experiences are illusory."
Maybe, maybe not. The point is you dont know for sure and you're not gonna know unless you seek the answers within yourself and gather them by DIRECT EXPERIENCE.
