In pursuing the Dhamma, it has become increasingly apparent that there is a disconnect between Right View and Conventional Truth.
According to Conventional Truth, by some objective measure, it might be accurate for me to think either, "I am better than Mr. X", "I am worse than Mr. X", or "I am equal to Mr. X".... but in terms of Right View they are all wrong, because they are all expressions of mana
According to Conventional Truth a spider has eight legs. It would be inaccurate for me to say it has ten legs if I sincerely (but falsely) thought it to be so, but it would be neither Right View, nor Wrong View, because the number of legs a spider possesses is independent of the matters pertaining to the Four Noble Truths.
Do you agree or disagree with the above? If you agree, and have more examples that might help us more clearly differentiate between Right View and Conventional Truth, it would be of interest.
