     This is fine.  You chose to define the term differently than I.

     When I use the word however, I mean OUT OF CONTACT WITH REALITY
AS IT IS.  Of course this does not purport to solve the problem of
how to determine what that reality really is, but it does assume
that a well functioning mind will in general be in proper contact
with reality as it is or it would not be able to survive for long.

     If you are one of those who don't agree that there is any one reality,
then my definition will not be useful to you.
