I am only going to address one point that you mentioned above, as I feel it to be the most important issue in your writing.

Please explain who the following questions can be construed as a declaration. "Ever stop to think that your perception might be in error? Ever stop to think that all of this 'reality' is just an illusion?" You might truly want to check out the differences in definitions that draw distinction from "question" and "declaration".
"THOUGHT. The operation of the mind. No one can be punished for his mere thoughts however wicked they may be. Human laws cannot reach them, first, because they are unknown; and, secondly, unless made manifest by some action, they are not injurious to any one; but when they manifest themselves, then the act, which is the consequence, may be punished. Dig. 50 16, 225."
