I've been struggling with this one for a while now, so I'm finally "biting the bullet" and asking someone.

What IS solipsism, within the context of Satanism?

I looked up the definition. According to Google, solipsism is

Quote:
the view or theory that the self is all that can be known to exist.


and I've looked into it further, but I can't see why Doktor LaVey is saying

Quote:
Projecting your reactions, responses and sensibilities onto someone who is probably far less attuned than you are


Does solipsism for a Satanist just mean seeing what one wants to see (projections of the self), rather than what's actually there?

Meaning: if someone is being a jerk to me, is solipsism ignoring the "jerkness" and seeing ONLY what I want to see?
