Great question! Thanks for raising it.

My personal view of this is we are all more a common consciousness, a 
Oneness, than we are our seperate selves. That being the case, it 
informs my criticism of another, because though the criticism of them 
may be a valid perception of mine, the way I criticize another is the 
same way I treat such qualities within myself.

So if I am quick to condemn, slander and insult others, that is the 
same inner dialogue I have with myself. And either by the mechanism of 
karma or just self dislike, it is not the most helpful way to get 
through this life.

Additionally, the world we see is the projection of our own 
consciousness onto our objects of perception. And so, yes, whatever we 
criticize is, scientifically, us. Which is to say we are much more 
than this body. And whatever we perceive, we perceive through our 
machinery and so at the very least it always has our imprint on it, 
and we wouldn't see it that way if it wasn't us seeing it.
