Alternate reality

Alternate realities are built up out of alternative concepts, concepts not shared by other intelligences.  Some such alternative concepts are:
vital force
strong free will
survival of death
ESP/psychic phenomena
An alternate reality will typically not be built up entirely of alternative concepts.  Some concepts will be shared across alternative models of the world.
The level at which a concept appears in the abstraction hierarchy is also important.  A Christian's idea of love is rather different from a biologist's.

"When a pickpocket meets a saint all he sees are pockets."  The pickpocket and the saint experience different realities.
