Paris Hilton - Reality of fiction?

Ok, so obviously Paris herself is a reality, but what I wanted to talk about was the difference between her version of realiy and yours, or rather is there such a thing as reality?

To quote Wikipedia

Reality, in everyday usage, means "the state of things as they actually exist."

So the fact that we seem to have different levels of reality may have something to do with how we view things, or how we relate to the existence of things?

In Paris Hiltons' world reality may include riches and parties and celebrity friends and these may not be in your own on a daily basis but I suspect that her recent incarceration added a slightly different view of reality to her mind - one that you may already have encountered.

Why bring this up at all? Well, it's my belief that there is actually no such thing as reality, it is simply a word that has been coined to express a view on all that we know of our world and how we see it. Therefore, we all have our own reality and this might explain why some people in society, who's view is radically different from the mainstream view are seen as undesirable or even evil.

Paedophiles, Rapists, Murderers - all have a reality as well, just not the same maybe as yours.

I'm not about to condone these things for I also see them as unfortunate aspects of humanity, but if I'm right - perhaps their reality is just as 'right' for them as yours is to you?
