Open peer commentary on the article “Construction of Irreality: An Enactive-Constructivist Stance on Counterfactuals” by Andrey S. Druzhinin. Abstract: I first argue that rigorous and systematic first-person research on lived experience is essential to understanding irreality as experience. Then, based on first-person research, I briefly show that the lived world of human experience is quite diverse. Moreover, I argue that, in many cases, people’s insight into their own and others’ experience is poor. Consequently, to claim that observing film characters’ behavior and utterances from the third-person viewpoint to understand the experience of irreality is the best alternative to classical text analysis or task-dependent laboratory experimentation is an overstatement. There is a gap between the method of observation of the target article and what it promises as its result.
