Ultimate reality

As some of you might know, in both my books, Aspects of reality – a user’s guide to the universe, and my upcoming Super Clues to Reality, I have been trying to work out what the reality we think we live in is all about.  As ever, the deeper you dig there is inevitably more questions than answers and the whole thing becomes even more unknown and mysterious. But to put our individual lives in perspective I think it is important to know what we can.

There are, I have found, three orders of reality. Ultimate, objective and subjective. The last one is of course the most interesting. What do the categories mean? Well follow this thread and all will be revealed in the next few posts, but first ultimate.

Ultimate reality

This addresses the fundamental concept or who we are and where we really came from. What are the fundamentals of our existence?

The only way we know we exist is that we think and are aware of the fact. I say we because there is no real proof that anyone around us actually exists outside of our individual consciousness.

The real question is, who made us and how did we come into existence? Science is not much help here, as it cannot answer the fundamental question of where the energies of the big bang, which is said to trigger the creation of our physical universe, came from. What it can do, though, is to show that via our atomic structure and quantum mechanics, that we, and all of physical creation, are nothing more than energy beings living in an interlinked energy matrix. This opens up more possibilities for our ultimate reality.

So, created by a divine being or intelligent designer of some description? Or are we just a computer simulation, by an alien master computer somewhere? Some think that we are a collective effort, from our spirit selves in a higher dimension, emanating from source. There are endless possibilities but no proof. All we can say is our ultimate reality is unknowable, but that none of the above can be ruled out. All we can be sure of is that we, as individuals exist.

    I think that the answer to your question lies in the fact that the language we all use to communicate is not adequate to explain the intuitive response the question needs. Hence we frame everything in language, ideas and thoughts, but that is not enough, there is a knowing, a feeling, but not the words to explain something which is ‘other’. We try and try to explain, and everyone speaks and thinks in their own way, and some of it resonates with some people and some with others. It is all limited however by the human experience
