We find ourselves concerned with the state of the world yet we do not live in one world.

Our inner world reveals significant differences from the outer world. The outer world offers a variety of impressions to people.

It is not unusual to claim we live in different worlds. The one world view seems to be another ideology. Claims of what is true, half true and false abound.
