coberst,

Congratulations on producing a non-didactic post for a change!

But this has nothing to do with Socrates and "critical thinking". It can only be analysed by an assumption of commonalities of "experience" based on an objective "physical reality". If I were Fred I would urge the others to follow the excercise regime to see if they had the same experience. "Sameness" would need to be verified by common agreement on the "experience" of say oranges and sunsets etc. If no commonality were forthcoming, Fred would merely be sidelined as an odd-ball with strange subjective "visions".

Sorry, hemlock is reserved for the worthy !
