The World Is Not How We ‘See’ It
As I learned ever more about both how we perceive the world around us, and how that world / universe is actually constructed, I realized that we don’t ever ‘see’ reality, but that our brains construct as a picture of what is all around us and the picture is useful – but is constructed and is not a veritable truth. Because of an essential connection to the universe, our brains can help us ‘see’ but we do not ever sense reality as it really is. We only ‘see’ what our brains tell us – weird, huh?
When Einstein said that “The universe is not only weirder than we imagine, but weirder than we can imagine.” he vastly underestimated its weirdness. Our senses are optimized, in conjunction with our brain, our awareness and consciousness, to have us survive as Fear-driven Homo sapiens. Those limited senses have still allowed us to get to the point where we are ready to evolve into Homo spiritus, a Love-driven species.
If we are to efficiently evolve into that new species, however, before we destroy the ability of this beautiful blue planet to support we destructive humans, all of us are going to have to better understand the difference between what we think that we sense and the reality of this universe and planet. We are also going to have to quickly understand the distortions in what we have been told about both Who we really are and Why we are here. This book can help us take some early steps in knowledge.
