But please see my previous note about the distinction of the
Umwelt, Lebenswelt, and Innenwelt.    (04)

Reality is the same for all species, but each species has a unique
Umwelt, each language community has a unique Lebenswelt, and each
individual has a unique Innenwelt.    (05)

That distinction must be recognized and incorporated into any
ontology that has a prayer of a hope of justifying the word
'universal'.    (06)
