Whenever I log into these forums Iím always hoping to find a new and exciting debate to participate in or follow, but no. Itís usually just the same old bickering between believers and non-believers, about whatís true and whatís not, and how ďThatís not a fact!Ē or ďYou canít prove that!Ē or ďYou canít disprove it either!Ē

I have my own views and opinions on these things, and Iíd like to share them. Instead of copy-pasting replies everywhere I thought Iíd put it out in a new thread instead, explaining them thoroughly.

I argueÖ
Perception is subjective Ė Not necessarily consistent with what is universally true, or real.

If scientific research and discovery accounts for anything, our perception is entirely governed by our senses, and our physical senses are limited to what we are, allow me to explain.

Our eyes can detect up to three different wavelengths of light, the nerve endings in our skin can register changes in pressure and temperature, our taste buds and nose can register certain chemical components, and our ears can detect certain frequencies of vibration. This is, as far as our common reality goes (more on that later), a fact.
What is also a fact is that different species have different senses, and are thus able to perceive different things, dogs can smell things that humans canít smell, mantis shrimps can see colours that humans canít see, and so on.
Additionally, senses have been known to malfunction. Hallucinations, voices that arenít there, mistaking the smell of coffee for the colour blue and so on. Things like these are most commonly considered mental illnesses.
As far as I understand, this supports my argument of perception being subjective.

So what does that mean? It means that if our perception truly is subjective, all of our experiences and perceptions of reality are too. However, when multiple individuals experience the same things, we establish a common reality. A reality that most of us can relate to, because we all experience it similarly and coherently.

We acknowledge the existence of the physical world, because we can see and feel it with our senses. But what of things that we cannot sense? Weíve already established that there must exist colours outside of our visual spectrum that we simply canít see (certain wavelengths of light).
For example, imagine that humans had no eyes at all, we would be absolutely oblivious to the concept of colours altogether. I therefore theorise that itís safe to assume there are multiple other spectrums of a reality, in relation to universal truth, that we just canít perceive. Either because we lack the organs to sense it, or the ability to comprehend it.

If that is indeed the case, we can never, ever, claim anything to be a fact in relation to universal truth, because we canít see the whole picture.
You, we, as humans, are limited. What you think you know isnít necessarily true. What you know you think could be entirely possible, but never proven nor disproven. Gods may be real, or may not be real. Conspiracy theories may be real, or may not be real. Either way, the most important thing is that you could be wrong, but so could I.

Not sure if this belongs here, but here goes.

I'm trying to come up with an armour system for a game. It has several categories of armour that each have their own pros and cons and so on.

But.. I'm at a loss as to what to call one of the categories, and I'm hoping the collective creativity of multiple people can help me out.

So far the list goes like this:

- Plate (Typically rigid material like metal, in plates)

- Scale (Typically rigid material fastened to a flexible undercoat in scales)

- Mail (Rigid material, linked together for flexibility)

- leather?
this is where I'm at a loss. The category is supposed to be any kind of flexible fabric/leather-like material. But I'd rather not call it leather because I intend to have multiple different materials for each type of armour class. So simply calling it "leather" may conflict with X material that is definitely not leather but some other similarly flexible material.

Another placeholder name I've been suggested is to just call it "Flexible", but mail is flexible too.
So the question is. Which word do I use to classify materials that are flexible, fabric or leather-like?

Resource scarcity is a lie. There would be no poverty if money creation and resource distribution was in the hands of the people. Support a resource based economy to end poverty, starvation, and war. This isn't the hunger games. Humanity doesn't have to kill each other over scraps of food. We just have to take back our planet from the money changers who enforce the rules of artificial scarcity.
