How real is real? How much do we actually see, feel, touch, hear, and smell is 100% accurate to what is outside of our brain? To most people, there is no question that it is 100% accurate. To them, this makes sense. If they are successful in life, they feel the rewards so much more deeply. If they are failures, their pain is greatly intensified and unbearable.
If what is sensed is not a true reflection, then, their rewards and losses become not as important and crucial. If I sense that what is out there is not real, then why am I putting so much effort into being financially successful, and what sharp pain would I feel if my losses are also not real?
Desires are reflections of my conclusions I make about my reality. When I believe strongly that all that I have and am experiencing are as real as real can be, then all my emotions and desires are just as real and crucial to me! This drives my focus, my paths, and all my actions.
So, what happens when you begin to question your life-long conclusions as to how you put all these incoming sensory signals into a tidy, neat package? You start doubting. You start to examine the underlying assumptions. You begin, logically, a step-by-step process to uncover what is really going on.
You don’t say you can fly like a bird and jump off the 40th floor. You start on the ground and jump. From the ground up. The ground is your current foundation from which has been formed from all your assumptions. This is your everyday reality: solid conclusions that are flimsy beliefs into what you think is happening.
People make claims that during their sleep, or deep meditation, they can astral project to other places and to other times. The foundation of reality that we exist in day-by-day wants to bridge where we are standing now to that. So, prove it objectively. Have someone go into another room and write something down. Simple, objective tests. That is all that is needed to bridge the two.
Uncover our assumptions, one-by-one and then, we can discover how real is real.
