Reality is a mental illusion (I)
I’m going to start a series of articles (since what I plan to explain is quite long for a single post) in which we will try to explain in more detail why the world that we perceive as “real”, it is not as real as it looks. I have already written some other posts in this blog about this subject, but I will try to go a little further and try to structure the whole process of the creation of what we call the “real world”.
Many of us know how to create the reality that we want, we understand the power that we have to attract and project certain events towards us, to avoid others, or how to accept them when we do not seem to have any other choice. We know how the “generating” part of the world that we see out there works, you know that it is our pineal gland that acts as a projector of the same with the content of our subtle bodies, programs and mental forms, but perhaps we do not know how the “receiving” part works. That is to say, my body, my mind, emit waves and thoughts that are transformed into something that I perceive as real and that is nothing else but that thing that has a similar frequency to what I emit, which has been forming first on the mental plane and then “go down” to the etheric and physical, but how do I know and perceive that what I get is what I have created? How is my real world, the one that I see through my eyes, the one I touch with my hands, built?
Seeing with the mind
It is not your eyes or your hands that perceive the world we call “real”. It is your brain and your mind that work building three-dimensional holograms based on, partially, the information received from the senses, and that, in reality, it is nothing else than the representation that they consider valid of what they think they are receiving. Even then, things are made-up. Pure illusion. Let’s see if we explain it.
Everything that we perceive as real, is nothing else than a three-dimensional mental projection of what our brain and our mind decode. Our eyes do not “see”, it is the mind the one that “sees”. The eyes are lenses that carry information from the retina to the brain, which is where the image is created. Our eyes are like the optics of the cameras that allow light to pass through, those energetic beams that exist out there, and send them inside the mind, via the brain, to process that light, without making, at any time, judgments or presumptions about what it represents.
The eye doesn’t know that is receiving the light energy of a chair or an elephant, and frankly, it doesn’t care about it, its function is simply to transmit the light beam inwards. However, on the way to the visual cortex of the brain, the temporal lobes edit, cut and filter up to a 50% of the initial light beam, and only that part edited of what we actually perceived through the retina, is what reaches the brain, which then, starts to “decide” what it is receiving, passing the information to the mind, deciding to what the received energy corresponds to, and thus build from there, the 3D image of what it thinks it has in front of it.
A reconstruction based on assumptions
Therefore, if what we “see” is based on less than 50% of an information gathered from outside, how do we know what is real and what is invented? How what we perceive as real is created in our mind? The answer is that the brain makes up the other 50% of information from data that is already in the mind and in the mental body, from our presumptions regarding how the world should be out there, from what we “expect” to see in reality and from anything accumulated in the memory banks to which it has access through the conditioning and programming existing since we are born through our DNA. For this reason each of us “see” things differently, because basically our final hologram, our three-dimensional representation of that object or created situation, it has been generated in accordance to what it has “found” “inside” to build it.
The Journey of Light
As described by David Icke in his book “Tales from the Times Loop” and Michael Talbot in “The Holographic Universe”, the journey of light since the moment is perceived by our “sensors” (the eyes) until we realise that we are seeing something (we build the image), it is impressive. The light enters through the cornea, it passes through the pupil, which controls the amount of light that passes through to protect our visual system with the iris. This light that has passed through the pupil and goes to the vitreous humour, a kind of gelatinous mass that we all have behind the pupil, and then finally the light beam reaches the retina, which captures the image. Unfortunately, it does it only in two dimensions and vice versa, so in order to finish discerning what we are seeing, light is sent to the brain in the occipital lobe and then to the mind. It is here, and only here, when the mind builds up the image, and completes it with that information that may be lacking, creates a three-dimensional hologram of the object and informs our consciousness that it is “seeing” something, which finally turns out to be a chair.
If our mind had built up the image as something totally different and without paying too much attention to the information received through the eyes, or doing any erroneous association in relation to the light beam that is registering, we would have been convinced that we are seeing something else, and this other thing would be so real for us, for example, a closet, as that chair, because reality is built in our mind and not outside of it. Basically the same happens with what we hear and what we listen. The information is filtered by our auditory system and only in the mind we build the reality that best suits us according to what we expect to hear, we believe that we are hearing or have previously heard. That’s why when something is said, two people receiving the same information can interpret it in a completely different way and be convinced that their version is the correct one, for not mentioning those arguments between friends or partners, what they hear about what the other is saying, if it was recorded and then it was repeated to be heard, it would really be a show, because many times we all hear what we are interested or expect to hear, simply because the mind is filling in the information it lacks with what it finds inside the mind and that matches its expectations and beliefs.
The same happens with the rest of the senses. This implies only one conclusion, the reality that we live is only the one that matches our preconceived ideas, the one that it is interpreted by our mind in a manner that it considers good, and that is aligned with our thoughts, feelings, and expectations. Essentially, we live the external reality based on our inner reality: our work, our friendships, our family, our health or our material abundance. Curious, isn’t it? We have already completed the circle of conscious creation. As it is inside, it is outside.
