As you read this, you most likely believe that everything around you that you can currently see, touch, taste is real.
Most of us determine what is real by relying on one or more of our five senses. If you touch something and can feel it, it is real. If you can taste something and swallow it, it is real. If you can see something, especially from multiple perspectives, it is real.
We have almost 100% faith and trust in our five senses and their ability to tell us what is real and not real. We do this even though on another level we know or can know of the great inadequacies and limitations our senses have. For example, our eyes cannot see the vast majority of the light spectrum including parts like x-ray, gamma ray, and infrared. Another example is our sense of smell where we know many animals have a far greater range of smells they can register.
In truth, we should not trust our senses to tell us what is real. The truth is that everything in your world that you can touch, see, taste, hear, and smell is a dream. It is an illusion. On this point, virtually every quantum physicist and wisdom tradition agrees. The following is a series of quotes from a variety of highly respected sources confirming that we are living a dream. Everything we “see” is vibrating electromagnetic energy displayed on a “screen” of ether. There is absolutely nothing solid about matter.
- “The body as matter is in actuality an electromagnetic wave.”
“Modern science is moving closer to the truth in acknowledging the body to be an expression of electromagnetic waves.”
Dr. Fritjof Capra, quantum physicist: “Quantum theory demolished the classical concept of solid objects.”
- Dr. Deno Kazanis, Biophysicist.
“Thanks to quantum mechanics, we know that matter isn’t solid. Atoms aren’t solid things.”
“Our ability to see, touch, taste, smell, and hear the world is really only due to atoms’ electric charge.”
- British astronomer Sir Arthur Eddington: “The ultimate stuff of the universe is mind stuff.”
- Scientist Sir James Jeans: “The universe can be best pictured, though still very imperfectly and inadequately, as consisting of pure thought, the thought of what we must describe as a mathematical thinker. If the universe is a universe of thought, then it’s creation must have been an active thought.”
- Albert Einstein: “I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.”
