Reality - What is YOUR Perception

Updated on October 23, 2016

One Must Acknowledge the Known

First, one must acknowledge the known:

  • “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” Albert Einstein
  • “Everything you see or hear or experience in any way at all is specific to you. You create a universe by perceiving it, so everything in the universe is specific to you.” Douglas Adams

Reality is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or might be imagined. Real-world physics suggests an uncomplicated “ultimate reality.” A universe composed of elementary objects that move around in an otherwise empty void. It is their “atomic reality.” Physicists search for the absolute truth beyond the human mind. An example is how can a simple electron be two things at the same time: both a wave and a particle?

Quantum physics is an attempt to explain our reality. It is simply the best theory developed, pending a better theory to explain what reality really is. The universe could be a hologram. This makes sense when the amount of information stored in a region is proportional to the region’s surface area, rather than its volume. This is known as the holographic principle. If this is “reality” is true, one possible implication is that reality is actually two-dimensional, and our three-dimensional world is simply an illusion, which would explain the weirdness of quantum mechanics.

Perhaps these views are simply “flavors” of reality. Perhaps we are an illusion. The Australian National University (ANU) conducted an experiment that indicates that reality does not exist until it is measured. In our real-world, our minds perceive that an object should be a wave or a particle, independently how it was measured. This experiment supports that quantum physics it does not matter if a particle should show a wave-like behavior or particle-like behavior. It depends on how it is measured. The macro world in which humans perceive reality adds significance to the findings…

The following is an experiment to prove how words, thoughts, and intentions affect our world. Dr. Emoto placed cooked rice into three containers. The first glass container the words “Thank You” were written. The second container he wrote, “You fool.” The third container he was completely ignored. As you can see in the below 1:32 seconds video the results. At the end of 137 days, the sealed glass container with rice with the words, “Thank You” were unchanged. The second sealed glass container with the words, “You Fool” turned black. The ignored sealed glass container of rice is partially rotting. What do you think? Are we masters of our reality? If so, can you change yours?

Our Thoughts Affect Other's Reality!

Consciousness Creates Our Reality

As Carl Sagan noted, "Science is not perfect. It's often misused; it is only a tool, but its the best tool we have. Self-correcting, ever-changing, applicable to everything; with this tool, we vanquish the impossible."

Would our reality reflect our consciousness? If it did, how would we understand it? Does our consciousness create reality?

Apparently there is a correlation between consciousness and our physical world. Physicists admit that the universe is a mental construction.

See the dual existence of our universe as demonstrated in this video.

What is the Truth? How Can this be?

Is Reality as we see it?

      What an interesting topic and article. Reality is at times beyond our grasp in certain situations. I only wish it were easily understood when it comes to those video games teens play.

      Thanks Wendy! I'll have my world check with your world...

      diogenes - Bob, well said... notwithstanding I do not know what you said!

      FitnezzJim - I think we would need a referee to build a consensus who is "real!"

      Interesting stuff is it not?

      Can it get even stranger? What happens if another observer watches the observer watching the slit?

      There is no collective reality; there are no universal laws; there is no time, therefore, no past, present or future.

      Even what we say as an individual is our reality may only be a dream without substance.

      What we say we know, we don't and we never will.

      I agree- without everyone living in a different 'reality' the world would be a boring place. Interesting article!
