      If reality is an illusion then an illusions are reality. Think that out.

      I lost interest at the 4-minute mark.
      It's nonsense.  I do hope those people don't find themselves in jail or in some other weird or unwanted position just because they think they've found their "true identity" and acted upon that false notion!   LOL

      ...The only thing I came close to agreeing with them about is when they started to get into the area of thought about the spiritual aspect of humanity.   I agree that the "essence" of humans is their souls, the immortal part of them.

      But after watching the first 4 minutes, I realized those kooks only want company in their kookiness, so I refrained from finishing the video.  haha    I think they've lost their grip on reality.

          haha Good for you!

          My initial curiosity must've gotten the better of me.  I repent! hahaha

        Awesome we have the freedom to just click and get out huh.  Most people have their beliefs and if something seems out of their frame of thinking "oh well it must be witchcraft, or how can they say the earth is flat when we know for a fact it's not" people freak out or put labels on those that believe anything else.

    What if dreams are reality and reality is dreams?

      That would be shocking! Lol. My mind is boggled enough and then this. Ha ha!

      To pull the strands of time and space apart one by one to decipher what is and what isn't.

      Hmm... life is interesting to say the least.

      That would be ok just means they have new labels. Would it make any difference?

    Albert Einstein once said- "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one".

    If you're able to understand what he meant, incorporating the time he lived, his knowledge and his wisdom? Then you might figure out something positive. smile big_smile

      One of the great minds of our time, do we dismiss him, I guess some have their own theories.

      I just heard this somewhere.  I love this.  Is it from the Vedas?

      Also, "by losing our illusions, we lose everything and nothing."

    Nice, I now see some people can actually see past their narrow views.  Others well, I guess whatever their daily routine is just enough, without questioning.

    The first video regarding particle and quantum physics was right on the money.  If you break it down to the level of pure energy, it's easier to understand. 

    If you start with, let's say, the human body - you have a body, then organ systems, then cells, then molecules, then atoms.  Remember when they finally split the atom?  They found pure energy.  They couldn't recreate it and they couldn't destroy it.

    So everything is pure energy.  That's what they're talking about.  It's not just mumbo-jumbo, life is an illusion. 

    When they talked about 'we create our own reality' - and you've heard this since the days of the hippies and the counter-culture - what they mean is that given enough direction, you can literally change your physicality.  You can't just intellectually believe it, you have to feel it.

    It's no different, really, than the 'ask, believe, receive' concept of Mark and Luke? I think, in the Bible.  If you can see it in your mind, if you can believe it, it will happen for you.

    Most of us, however, don't possess that kind of focus, unfortunately. 

    The second video, I couldn't get through.  I believe the first one, therefore cannot subject my mind to the second which seemed to be political propaganda.  I didn't finish it so I may be wrong on that.

    Has anyone seen the film "What the Bleep Do We Know?"

      I've seen Part I of the 12 YouTubes.  Yes, same concept as the one highlighted above by RubenRivera.  This is not a new concept but as science - quantum science in particular - discovers more and technology allows more people to become aware of it, we begin to grow our consciousness, in essence becoming aware of our own infinite nature.

      We can marvel at the human brain (or any other for that matter).  In a study called Visual Motor Rehearsal, a NASA concept that was adapted for the U.S. Olympic teams, atheletes were hooked up to sophisticated biofeedback equipment.  They were asked to run their event in their minds.  The brain fired up the same way it did when they ran the event for real.  So the brain doesn't know the difference between what physically happened and what it remembers or perceives to have happened proving that we can, in fact, create an existence or a reality.

      This is why people continue to make the same mistakes or are drawn to the wrong people all the time.  The brain remembers that reality and is comfortable even at the expense of the physical body.  It takes brain wave re-entrainment to break the bonds of past experiences.

    Nothing exists but that which comes from within your own consciousness. If you believe an illusion is real then it is reality is it not? You are right to try and disbelieve the reality most people commonly accept. It doesn't quite seem right does it?
    Imagine yourself dreaming....everything in this dreamworld is created from "your subconscious mind" right? Yet, objects feel as solid and real as in the "awake world" (until they melt or dissolve or morph into your grandma) Now consider this.
    Everything in the world you know as "the awake world" is created by your subconscious mind dreaming through every living person on the planet simultaneously. In the awake world things don't melt, dissolve or turn into grandma because...that wouldn't make sense in everyone else's dream.

    Quantum theory is interesting because one can use it to adjust one's awake reality to be more desirable.

    Pretty Cool hunh? I write allot about this in my hubs.

    I think therefore I am.

      Well, you're right - reality IS reality.  The problem is that we have been invaded by an organization whose reality is electronically-based.  This makes our environment seem pretty darned unreal.  Everyone is being bombarded by electrical signals that carry new interpretations of reality.  I can detect a FAKE THOUGHT immediately and usually move on to a different subject of thought. 
           I had to dwell in "electronic Hell" for a number of years before I learned how to escape it.  90% of this stuff comes in through your EARS.  Scientists have found ways to get human brainwaves to imitate binaural signals.  I have a brain machine that does this......you can feel:  more relaxed, more excited, less depressed, even alpha-sessions to make you smarter.  The effect is quite profound.  Doing this very same thing to a person from a distance is possible through microwave-based technology.  That's where that ringing in your ears comes from:  someone is trying to "re-educate" you in a way once used by the Soviet Union.  This way of seeing things ISN'T REALITY, but tons of people have been "converted" via this technology.  The Binaural signals can be used to torture a mind: giving it bad thoughts, bad dreams and really awful physical sensations........thus our ENVIRONMENT IS FILLED WITH SYNTHETIC REALITY. 
           You need to DEPROGRAM YOURSELF.  This is done by increasing your ears threshold to sound with loud music.  This will:  block most of the signal, make you harder to startle with LOUD NOISES and simply make it harder for members to "access your mind".  They speak a thought-control language that when combined with these false messages make you feel VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.  The stress keeps coming and there are always threats that "something terrible is about to happen" that never does.  The victim's hold on reality becomes tenuous and finally is broken by a particularly stressful event.  Note that this group can get away with this because the stuff they say wouldn't effect us were it not for the accompanying mind/body messages.  They can make losing your car keys feel like Armaggedon. 
           Look under "Electronic Harassment" to find articles containing further info on this subject.   Last but not least:  Pray and think good thoughts and any "mental invasion" gets repelled.
