As an engineer and science-oriented, I have always defended the empiricism of our reality. What we see is what we get. My two traumatic experiences have made me rethink some ideas on what we call reality.
They are mere conjecture, for fun, but I find them interesting because each one would have a logical point in the impossibility of knowing the absolute truth.
That is, what we see, what we perceive is what we get.
As I said in the three rules for tolerance, I think the real existence is perception. Logical, and it seems irrefutable. Except… ‘if a tree falls in a forest where there is no one, does it make noise?‘ That is, what we perceive, is still there when is not perceived? Scientifically unprovable because any scientific proof goes through perception.
Those who doesn’t have doubts about the permanence of the imperceptible show to me the same faith ias creationists n God, who believe something, just because it, and beacuse it is like that.
Initially it was a science fiction story, successful and broadcasted on radio, ‘Cycle of life‘. But what if the reality was that?
Our life could be like this:
Our consciousness is in this loop in which each one is. Then each would have its only reality, some circumstances in which we are born. From the moment we are born, our decisions and the random uncertainty of the facts would lead us down a path or another, but inevitably to death.
What I find attractive in this way is that could be a sign of wisdom between one life and another to improve.
Something like what raised in ‘Restart again‘. The reality could be the overlap of all the infinites that we now have: time, space and dimensions. There is no beginning or end, each tiny moment based on randomness generates more parallel infinites.
Raised in the story, some paranormal phenomena could be explained as interference between all these infinite simultaneously.
Personally, this is the option that I like most, if it really were so, it could explain everything. What happens is that it is very difficult to conceive in our logic. For that we have the imagination.
If you are a believer, you might be interested in it. I will not defend the divine figure as we see in the sacred texts, but you may find some similarities. I personally believe that even the sacred texts had been dictated by God himself, they are written by human beings, then imperfect.
My idea is based on three principles:
Everything is true
A I already commented, ‘your reality is yours‘, then whatever you think will be real for you. This phrase would go further. What if in fact all our realities are true? Just in case of incompatibility, someone would be wrong, do not know who.
Everything has a beginning and an end
I apply the same logic to life. I think no one doubts that we are born and die. For applying this idea to time, it would have a beginning and an end. Yes, we enter into conjectures and beliefs, advantages of imagining. But curiously it has something in common with one of the last statements I heard from Stephen Hawking, who said that before the Big Bang, there was no time. After that, who says it cannot finish?
This principle says that the simplest explanation is usually the correct one. Then, why there will be more of one God if there can be one? Why more than one universe? And more than one dimension?
How this strikes me that this can come to give a theory of reality? Yes, it’s complicated, but I hope to explain within the abstraction of the idea.
The idea would be expressed in books such as ‘Sophie’s World‘. Our reality is nothing more than the one devised by an external consciousness. This consciousness creates rules, and imagine how their universe would be. There we appear, finite, inside the infinite imagination of something.
If this were so, it would not be such a reality rather than a thought. Lucky us that we can feel our environment. Actually, I would compare it to a procedural algorithm, that is, things are created dynamically at the moment someone thinks it. An imaginary example, the Earth was round and appeared universal gravitation when humans were raised about their place beyond what we see, that is like if that consciousness that imagines us has to be careful to maintain the logic of our reality that is created to keep us unaware of what actually happens.
At the end this would be like a game. The imaginer consciousness enjoys creating a universe to see who challenges it to find errors in its design. We are the opposing team trying to discover its game. Then, it could end up when all of us knew the reality, it would be the end of time. By the way, keep someone who thinks differently .
Why do I find it is interesting? Because it could explain many paranormal phenomena. If we are the imagination of an external conscience, space does not exist as such, there would not be distances, welcome teleportation. In addition, all our consciences would be linked to the consciousness, then telepathy. And more phenomena what point one says, everything is true, maybe those who experience things are right, and they are rules of the consciousness we just do not know or refuse due not to enter into our logic.
And finally, do you imagine that thinking consciousness to keep the game devised the initial rules and then rolled into his own thought, but forgetting who it was? The game would be to find it, that is, that all humans would recognize it as such. Curious, because this idea would combine the concept of messiahand antichrist in one; save us by showing us the true reality, we finally would be annihilated by game over.
