1984 Quote Reflection

“Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else. Not the individual mind which can make mistakes, and in any case soon perishes: only in the mind of the Party, which is collective and immortal".

Everything we know as human beings and everything we will ever know will come from the human mind. You can't truly operate as a human without the mind. And no two single minds work the same as each other. Without it, one is just a puppet for someone to manipulate and control. And since no two single minds work the same, one can look at another and see mistakes because they don't line up with what they see as right. In this case, the Party, being the higher power and " collective and immortal" see the people of Oceania as simpleminded and wrong and in need of correction. So " only in the mind of the Party" does reality exist in the human mind.
