Answer: We are living in an egoistic reality, in a state where we feel that everything is only for our own pleasure or our own security.
We can only feel a small part of the infinite, totally boundless state we are in; it passes through our egoistic filters and is recreated inside us in a distorted way called our world. This means that this world is virtual, that it exists inside us and is created by our ego. Only what is good or bad for our ego is reflected in it, and this is the only thing we perceive with our five senses.
In the reality we do not perceive, we are seemingly asleep, we cannot feel it because we are in our egoistic desire and can draw only what brings us pleasure or can reject what can bring us pain, and this is actually what creates the contrast between plus and minus in us, between darkness and illumination, and so forth.
Question: What percentage of true reality don’t we see?
Answer: We don’t see anything. What we process and recreate inside us, in our egoism, doesn’t count as part of the true volume of creation.
