There is an ancient materialistic theory about the perception of reality. What do our senses perceive: something that is happening outside of us or within us? This is the problem: It’s one of the two.
By changing the range of our sensors and allegedly perceiving something outside of us, we still observe only a very small part of the whole picture. There are certain ranges in which we are unable to distinguish the vibrations within. It’s feasible that totally different vibrations exist, which are not accessible to the perception instruments that we have developed.
The tools that we have invented to enhance our senses are based on our organs of perception. For example, in order to sense temperature fluctuations, we’ve added adequate sensors to tools already existing. At the same time, in order to better differentiate between certain visual images, we’ve created optical sensors, and so on. However, we are unable to build tools to perceive something that we have never observed due to the lack of appropriate sensors. We are only able to create additional tools that broaden our existing sensors that help us “see” many phenomena better.
This means that in fact we perceive only a very limited part of the external world. Today, it is proven that there is some “dark” matter and some other unclear phenomena. It’s as if we are sensing something, but it is not available to us.
The second theory declares that there is nothing outside of us and that our organs of perception represent a certain type of “contact” between our internal similarities and the external world. According to this theory, a person is a “closed box” within which there exists a desire that constantly senses something. We consider these sensations our life.
In other words, I exist within my desire, which includes you, this studio, everything there is in it, anything I imagine, all my fantasies, ideas, and reminiscences. Everything exists only within my desire, in my brain, and nowhere else. We are “a thing in and of itself.”
I am a follower of the second supposition, although there are many other theories. I am positive that we all exist within ourselves, emerge from our internal desires, and perceive a developmental program that our desire goes through, and this program is in fact our life. At this time, we are acquiring an opportunity to start running this program and consequently, to become able to rule our own life. We can move forward and backward, up and down in any direction, following any coordinates and axis.
Nature allows us to jump to the next ultimate level of realization of the system that we live in. It allows us to understand who we are and what kind of world we live in, whether it’s a dream or a reality, and what the difference between them is.
