WHAT IS THE TRUE NATURE OF REALITY?- SHARED BY BLOGGER YAZZY

quantum_healing_2

Yazzy our blogger sent me this email last night in support of yesterday’s post on “reality versus Illusion” in the world where we live. Yazzy, I thank you for this, you know I love reading and I am still searching for answers to many questions I have. While I do not take everything I read as Law, I rely on my own intelligence and spiritual greater sense to weed out truth from fiction. I am a logical person I believe, but there are things that challenge logic as we know it here in on this earth plane, and this is due to the human being’s limitation of the mind.

I have never read the Author’s below work, but I have heard him speak, and I have not read the article in its entirety, so like you I will be reading it today. It is long and so I have posted some of it her and hared the link below should you wish to continue reading, but remember, reading is fundamental and a mind is a terrible thing to waste and Ywady Ywady yaw, I am sure you all know that.

What is the True Nature of Reality?

The Basics of Quantum Healing
by Deepak Chopra, M.D.

What I hope to do this morning is to give you a brief glimpse into the quantum mechanical body-mind, to at least attempt to understand the exact nature of what the human body is like and also the exact nature of what the Cosmic Body is like.

We use terms like mind and body and universe, but what really is the exact nature of these things? What is the mind, what is the body, what’s the exact nature of physical reality? As children, we always had questions like, “Where was I before I was born? What am I doing here? What happens after death? Am I confined to my physical body? Am I just a skin encapsulated ego in a bag of flesh and bones? What really happens to me? Do I have a local address? Where do I live in this universe?”

And it’s interesting that science today is beginning to ask the same questions. After all science is the quest for the truth and if you’re a real scientist, these are the questions that are most critical to us.

One of the interesting things that science has found, this should have been obvious all along, is that what we call perception, what we see, hear, touch, taste, and smell, is really the least reliable test of what reality really is. We cannot trust our senses at all!

After all, the senses tell us that the earth is flat and we don’t believe that anymore. The senses tell us that the ground that we stand on is stationary and we know it’s spinning at dizzying speeds and hurtling through outer space at thousands of miles an hour. The senses tell us things have a certain taste, smell, size, texture. Maybe that’s not the way they really are.

There was an experiment done at Harvard Medical School about 20 years ago. A group of scientists took some kittens and brought them up in a room that had only horizontal stripes. All the visual stimuli in the room were horizontal. Another group of kittens was brought up in a room that had only vertical stripes. And when these kittens grew up to be wise old cats, it turns out that one group of cats could see only a horizontal world. The other group of cats could see only a vertical world. And this had nothing to do with the belief system of these cats.

It’s a phenomenon that psychologists call Premature Cognitive Commitment. Premature, because we make it at a very early stage of our development. Cognitive, because that’s how they cognize or see the world. And commitment, because it fixes us to a particular reality, it imprisons us in a fixed mode of perception.

There are many variations of these experiments. In India, when they train elephants, they take the baby elephant and tie it with an iron chain to a huge tree. Then they start cutting the size of the chain and the tree. Ultimately you can tie the elephant which a big animal now, with a flimsy rope to a green plant but the elephant is unable to escape. It’s made a commitment in its body-mind that it’s in a prison!

Or you can do another simple experiment. Take some flies and put them in a jar. After a while remove the lid from the jar and you’ll find that most of the flies, except for a couple of pioneers, will not be able to escape. They make a commitment in their body-mind that they’re in a prison.

People will tell you who work in aquariums that you can separate fish from each other. They’re in big glass tanks and the separations are transparent glass partitions. You can remove the glass partition after a while. The fish will swim to the edge of where the partition was and return . They made a commitment that that’s as far as they can go.

All these experiments, and there are many variations of these, are pointing to a very crucial fact as far as the mechanics of perception is concerned. And that is that our initial sensory experiences and how we interpret them or how they are interpreted for us actually structure the very anatomy and physiology of our nervous system in such a way that ultimately the nervous system serves only one function: to keep reinforcing the initial interpretation. Anything that doesn’t reinforce the initial interpretation doesn’t even get into the nervous system. So if you don’t have a concept or a notion or an idea that something exists, then your nervous system won’t even take it in.

That’s a very peculiar fact because it tells us that with bits of sensory experience, we’ll never be able to comprehend the whole. We never will be! After all the human eye can see only between 380 and 500 billionths of a meter. There’s nothing sacred between 360 and 370. It doesn’t exist for us.

And so too for the other senses. This is true not only of the human species but of all species. A honeybee, for example, doesn’t have the apparatus to see the usual wavelengths that you and I perceive. It senses ultra-violet. When a honeybee looks at a flower at a distance it doesn’t see a flower. It sees honey from a distance but it misses the flower altogether. A snake would experience the same thing as infrared radiation which means nothing to you and me. A bat would experience that as the echo of ultra-sound which also means nothing to you and me. And a chameleon’s eyeballs swivel on two different axis. You can’t even remotely imagine what this would look like to a chameleon.

So what’s the real nature of the world? What’s it really like? We can’t trust the senses. They give us a very distorted view. They break up that wholeness into a small fragment and we call it reality. We happen to agree about it. We even call it “objective reality” and we have a whole methodology that we call “science” to explore that . If you really understand what science is, then science at least until now has not been a method for exploring the truth. Science has been a method for exploring our current map of what we think the truth is. And the map is not the territory. The territory that we explore is really an extension of the map we have. If we don’t have the complete map then we will not explore the territory that is not within the framework of that map.

Sir John Eckles who won the Nobel prize in physiology and medicine several years ago made the statement, “I want you to understand that there are no colors in the real world. That there are no textures in the real world. There are no fragrances in the real world. There is no beauty, there is no ugliness. Nothing of the sort. Out there is a chaos of energy soup and energy fields. Literally. We take that and somewhere inside ourselves we create a world. Somewhere inside ourselves it all happens.”

It’s not out there at all! Go to a physicist and ask him what’s this made up of? And he’ll tell you there are just four basic forces: gravity, strong interaction, weak interaction and electromagnetism that make up everything that exists. Gravity is that which holds us to the ground, makes the planets move and holds them together. The strong interaction holds the nucleus of an atom together. If you disrupt it you get a nuclear explosion. The weak interaction is a force that is responsible for transmutation of elements and radioactive decay. And electromagnetism is that which we experience as light, heat and electricity.

Ask a scientist, “Is there anything else?” and they’ll say, “No, there isn’t anything else. Everything that exists out there is made up of these forces.” And ultimately even these forces come from one unified force which scientists today call the Unified Field. And everything that is there, all stars, all galaxies, all flowers, all human beings, everything that exists is just these forces of nature.

So what is the material world then? The material world is a cord that comes out of these forces and the cords of intelligence that structure particulate matter in fact exist inside us. We are the creators of this world. Literally.

There was an interesting conversation I once heard between a spiritual master and his student in India. At one point the student looked at this master and he said, “I don’t know about you. You must live in a different world.” And the master said, “No. We live in exactly the same world. The only difference is you see yourself in the world, and I see the whole world in myself. It’s a minor perceptual shift that you need to make.”

So let’s talk about this minor perceptual shift. Because our current understanding is that this world is made up of matter that exists in space and time. That even human bodies are nothing other than bits and pieces of matter. That the human body is a physical machine that has somehow learned to think. That it’s the dance of molecules that creates the epi-phenomenon of consciousness: thoughts, feelings, emotions, desires, concepts, ideas, philosophies, dogma, religion. All these. Poetry is the expression of the dance of molecules. Somehow these molecules move around and we get this epi-phenomenon called thought. We have physical machines that have learned how to think.

And of course this superstition is very pervasive in the world of contemporary medicine also. We are basically bogged down in the superstition of materialism which says that sensory experience is the crucial test of reality. Therefore, all our healing methodologies are also based on this superstition. We have magic bullets for the treatment of illness. And we have the expressions like, “Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is.” Or if you can’t believe you ate the whole thing you can have a couple of Alka Seltzers. If you can’t sleep at night there’s a sleeping pill. It will cure insomnia. You’re feeling anxious? There’s a tranquilizer. It will give you tranquillity. You have an infection? Take an antibiotic. It will cure the problem of infection. You have cancer? There’s chemotherapy, radiation, surgery. If you have chest pain, you can pop some nitroglycerin. Better still, have a bypass operation.

These are the magic bullets that are supposed to get rid of disease and improve our health but in fact all these magic bullets are symptomatic approaches. They relieve symptoms or at best mask symptoms while the underlying process remains unchanged. Sometimes they interfere with mechanisms of disease. And mostly scientific research today is basically elucidating mechanisms at disease. So if we know how bacteria multiply, we can kill them and then we’ll get rid of infection. If we know how cancer cells multiply, we can kill them and then we’ll get rid of cancer. It doesn’t work because mechanisms of disease aren’t origins of disease. We can interfere with mechanisms of disease and disease finds an alternative way of expressing itself.

This read is perhaps too long for some of you to read, so I have posted the link below should you wish to continue;

This tidbit is not surprising:
One of the leading causes of death is not the AIDS virus or HIV disease but from antibiotic resistant organisms that are acquired in hospitals. The number one cause of drug addiction in the world is not the street drugs of Colombia, but legal medical prescriptions.

Wow! I have to go finish read.

So I’m guessing what the scientists call the Unified Field is what we call God?

Hey NuNu, no matter what man fabricate the supreme being can’t be duplicated. True science don’t deal with any form of explanation of god because if it cannot be observed it doesn’t exist.
I like that because no outside source can create a god for me….God is personal.

Good day, Obara and fellow bloggers. This is an excellent article. I liked Depak when I first heard of him, but then I noticed he spoke to the elites and not to me the poor so I rejected him.

There’s truth in the article regarding perception. But I don’t like the method of research because they are obstruction of free will.

WOW maybe this is why people who do long sentences in prison constantly return to prison…the prisoners have made a commitment to prison and cannot reside on the outside. “Take some flies and put them in a jar. After a while remove the lid from the jar and you’ll find that most of the flies, except for a couple of pioneers, will not be able to escape. They make a commitment in their body-mind that they’re in a prison.”

In case I’m not clear: The flies and the elephant experiment is a method key to slavery, and I’m not making reference to Mid-Atlantic slavery…I’m talking about slavery from whatever era.

Then we have the prison industry that uses such techniques to ensure return customers and in America it is implemented in Blacks, Latinos and poor whites.

In other countries it’s use to contain the poor. I don’t do kindly with psychologist and MANY of their stupid opinions base on what they are trained to tell people…always the same textbook nonsense.

afternoon ES fambo
As children, we always had questions like… Am I confined to my physical body? Am I just a skin encapsulated ego in a bag of flesh and bones? What really happens to me? Do I have a local address? Where do I live in this universe?” what type children ask these questions…i remember questions like why is the sky blue, why my pinky name pinky and who named it? lol 😀 that statement gave me pause…gwan back guh read now….

Morning Obara! Hi my ES family. How do we know the color is really red. I wonder if people who are color blind are seeing the right colors? lol I am joking. We all say red because someone told us that. We have to go along with masses as far the material world to communicate.

Good morning folks! In keeping with the post on reality and dimensions, perception etc. I saw the movie, Interstellar recently. It delves into theoretical physics, roughly explained while we observe the universe in three dimensions, the scientists believe that there could be at least five dimensions and by learning the laws of the universe, time and space can be manipulated essentially giving us access to the past and future. Great film, It was a mind bending
