We have discussed how consensus reality is a problem for Buddhists. This is not really an issue Buddhist teachers much talk about. Maybe they don’t think of it that way. I don’t know.

An even bigger, related problem is mindless conformity. It stands to reason that most people will not even notice consensus reality. The whole point precisely is that nearly everyone accepts consensus reality as reality. Of course the sky is blue, and saying it is not is just crazy. To deny any aspect of consensus reality is to invite dismissal as someone who is literally insane.
