Hi

You wrote

"Selective perception causes us to think that what we are perceiving (ie something strange and different) is "real", whereas in truth, our personal perception tunes in to what we have personally become aware of "

Surely that's one and the same thing ? ie What we are perceiving is the same as what we have become personally aware of ? Or are you meaning to say that "what we are perceiving " is in the greater, rather than the personal, sense ?

And

"....... something "top of mind" to us or even something rumbling in our subconscious, that we then become aware of -( ie something strange and different to what we were previously aware of )- and hence we also become aware of others who are also perceiving things to be strange and different, when in fact there is really nothing different happening at all; only like minds coming together with the same selective perception. "

It's the how we become (intuitively?)aware of others who think on the same lines, that I find interesting. But how do our individual perceptions make us become aware of others' similar perceptions ?
Is this the Group Psyche at work ? What is actually different is what is happening and that is what we perceive, individually and also collectively, imv
