this anon has the right idea.
i recently wrote an entire paper about the subjective human experience and how our worldview reflects onto our perception of our own external reality (of which we cannot even validate the truthfulness of). in other words, mere belief of something can twist your own perception to essentially mold the world in your eyes. it's not a question of whether or not it's true. it's a question of whether or not you want it to be. at least from a very perception-level philosophical viewpoint
I think what attracts most people to this belief system is the interesting conflict intricacy that philosophy vs technology brings. it brings a lot of new questions into the light to do with the nature of reality, our morals, the future of mankind, our sense of self, etc etc. all very interesting stuff to think about.
