We can attain objective perception — if we want it

Opinion on the Internet about objective reality:

“Objective reality doesn’t exist. A reality is a perception which is always subjective and one’s mindset is the only thing that can ‘change’ ones reality.
Our reality is a reflection of self. If you want to change your current situation then trying to change anything apart from yourself starting with your mindset will be less efficient.
Mindset = thought habits.
You could say mindset is the root of all action. By making you see things in a certain way you are more likely to react to certain situations out of impulse and not logic therefore aligning you to a certain destiny outside of ones perceived control.
By working on your mindset you are in turn working on your destiny, just way more effective than directly trying to change your destiny but holding on to your current self.

You are right regarding our present perception that is 100% introverted, subjective.

Thus we can’t even argue about objective reality, if it exists or not, after all how would we know, how could we check?!

Nevertheless there have been many unique, empirical, Natural scientists through history who claim they achieved an objective perception, learning how to disconnect themselves from all inherently egocentric, subjective bias, distortion, achieving a totally selfless point of view.

And they developed a scientific method through which we can break through the wall separating us from objective perception, escaping out original egocentric, subjective “caves, cocoons”. And that method is open and available for all who want to see reality “as it is”.

We can’t even argue about the validity of their claim, or about the efficiency of their method until we actually try it, implement it and attain the result.

That’s all I can offer, try it and see what happens!
