The reality of who we are- 2

Last time (The reality of who we are -1) I looked at our human construction and explained that actually, at base although we perceive ourselves to be solid, we are nothing more than beings made from vibrating pinches of energy called quanta.

There are two problems here, (more…)

The reality of who we are -1

 One of the main keys in understanding the nature of our reality is understanding, at base, who and what as human beings we actually are. This is so important that I begin all of my talks by explaining this.

On the face of it you may think that the answer is obvious. As we look around us we see flesh and blood seemingly solid biological beings, and animals and plants, interacting with us. What you must understand is that this seeming solidity is an illusion.

Our physical construction

As we were taught at school, we and all of the universe around us are constructed from atoms. All of our bodily systems, flesh blood and bones, ( indeed all of  physical creation) are basically made of atoms of elements in different and often complex combinations.  The interesting fact here is that atoms are themselves mostly empty space.  We are not solid at all.

When learning about the atom we are shown a diagram with a ball type nucleus of protons (+) and neutrons, with ball like electrons (-) whizzing in orbits round it. Numbers of all vary according to which element. They vary from a simple one of each in hydrogen, to multiple of each in the heavy metals.

Energy beings

This standard diagram is very misleading. These little ball thingy’s actually are not solid at all. Each element in the atom (and there are many other interesting bits and bobs also) are themselves nothing more than pinches of vibrating energy in different combinations. These packets of vibrating energy are called quanta. We are no more than energy beings. So why don’t we bleed into each other and our environment?

Well, the energies within each atom hold the atom, and any combination or molecules, together. Seeming solidity is just a factor of the strength or density of each material’s atomic charge. We can walk though air as it is hardly dense at all. We can sit on iron (or a bullet can pass though us) as it is much denser than we are, so the atomic energy is stronger.

This is the real picture!

 

What does this all mean?

There are two types of physics, each with their own laws, that seem to explain how the physical world works. That of the very big and that of the very small.

The Newtonian view of physics governs everything down to the atomic level. This sees the universe as a machine. Every particle acts in a consistent certain way according to the observed rules.

At the sub atomic level though, this does not seems to happen. In fact not only do particles not always follow “ the rules” but they can  behave in ways that give us a whole new perspective on reality.  This I will look at next time.

Aspects of reality

We, at base, are nothing more than beings made of vibrating energy.

 

 

 

 

The reality of of what we see (or do not see).

As someone fascinated by the nature of our reality, I talk and interact regularly with people who see a variety of phenomena from auras to angels, fairies, ghosts and aliens and beyond. I personally see nothing. The question is often asked, If there are other beings in our reality with us, why cannot we all see them?

The answer is that as human beings we are limited. We are limited by the variable quality of our sense organs and how our individual consciousness’s organizes and makes sense of  the input which these sense organs feed to it.

How do we see things

We see things, of course, with our eyes.  Simply put, light enters in though our pupil, is focused by our lenses and hits the back of the retina. There are two types of photoreceptors in the human retina, rods and cones.

The retina transforms the image received via the rods and cones into electrical impulses that are carried by the optic nerve to the brain. The brain then makes sense of what it sees. For instance, the image is actually inverted and the brain shows it to us the right way up.

Why don’t we all see the same thing?

There are several reasons for that.

Firstly, physically, our eyes are all slightly different.  Whilst following a standard pattern, the detail of each individual pair of eyes will vary, according to our genetics. Not only the colour varies but the quality of each individual part may vary too. We all do see things differently. We see colour differently, the number and quality of our rods and cones vary. Some people are short sighted or long sighted. Some people have amazing clear vision and others do not see well at all.

Secondly, we are bombarded with images continually. To survive in this world our brain has to make sense of these. Who is moving towards us? What distance are things away from us? What is this object I am seeing? Our brain actually edits. If it cannot recognize a object,  it will search your memory or data base to find out what it may be. It may just show you the nearest thing to what it recognizes which may not be actually, in that form, there at all. This happens in a split second. We all do see things differently. We do see the edited version, according to our brain. There may be something that you could see around you, but your brain/consciousness does not recognize it and edits it out.

Thirdly, we only see the images of the wave lengths of light that our physical eyes are set up to register. Beings around us who are vibrating at a higher frequency may just not visible to us. Some people with a more sensitive set of rods and cones ( or a more sensitive consciousness) may glimpse them.

Fourthly, some people, by using meditation or other methods, may actually transcend the limitations of the human eyes and the human standard brain. They may actually see what is around them. They may even get glimpses of other dimensional beings. Once the brain has the pattern for these other images, of course, they may be able to see them when not necessarily in an altered state.

Aspects of Reality

There are many other beings in our reality with us.Whether or not we can see them depends on the individual quality of our physical eyes and the editing ability of our brain/consciousness.

 

 

Who Do We Think We Are?- A question of reality

Living in a complex and sophisticated society as we do, it is very easy to lose sight of the basics.  Who are we? Where could we have come from? Any search for the truth of the matter about our origins has to start with the  only clues that we actually have. (more…)
