what is reality?

2 years, 2 months ago

excuse my grammar english is my 2nd language….
some scientist are beginning to think that we can’t find a unified theory of the laws of the universe because we don’t perceive the reality as it actually is. What is real and what isn’t?
are we pure information? what is this thing that our eyes perceive and our brain interoperates?

Conciousness experiencing itself in the 3rd dimension. That’s why reality changes at just the observance of it. Research the double slit experiment. Our thoughts are information that changes reality too. Check out the Law of Attraction. Want to leave the 3rd dimension and experience a higher realm? Ascend, Jesus did it. He taught how to do it also :)

I think reality is quite subjective. To each person reality is just chemical reactions going off in their brain.

@fguisa1, @alexa, @kjbaran, @jonnyiscool,
Are we physical beings with the side-effect of consciousness, or are we conscious beings with the side-effect of physicality?

“What is real? How do you define real? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.”

As someone mentioned above, reality is subjective.

How’s this? “Reality is everything that isn’t misapprehended, confused, incomplete, or inaccurate.”

@aidenblair, Is energy made of matter or is matter made of energy? Can there be a painting without an artist to paint it? Can there even be art without an awareness to perceive it? Meditating on mindfulness can help bring about a more comfortable understanding of this. Of course all being said from what some call an “opinion”.

“Before you judge others or claim any absolute truth, consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 kilometres per second across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not “you”. The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colours you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.”
@fguisa1, the only thing you can be certain of in this reality and the only thing you could truthfully call reality is experience. We could be plugged into a matrix for all we know, that this 3D world is all an illusion, but I still am experiencing the now. Experience is reality and perception is how we internalize experience. There will never be an exact definition or equation for reality, it’s a human thing. And consciousness has no bounds, therefore is description-less.

@kjbaran, As an artist and a physics enthusiast, I very well could answer your questions, were they not rhetorical. That being said, thank you for the insights, as I never would’ve come to any conclusions on my own :)
