Human beings have always tried to explain the mysteries of life. We have tried for over 20,000 years, and still we are equally confused. Look at the animals; they seem to be in a flow with the nature. I can never know what their philosophy of life is, but I would not be surprised if they know the truth better than us. They realized from the beginning that civilization is a stupid idea, which is why they never tried. And all the while we thought we are intelligent because we have civilization and kept asking the poor animals “Tumhare paas kya hai?” (“What do you have?”). They could not even say “mere paas ma hai” (“I have mother”). It is natural for mothers to leave them when they are old enough. They realized from the beginning that having mother-in-law is a stupid idea. However this post is not about making us realize how stupid we are, I have done it already in the post ‘Cheers to our Stupidity’.
What I am trying to say, in such a confusing way, is that the world is a complex world. Our brain is not used to dealing with multiple realities. That is why it tries to make everything look simple. What it does is collapse the probability wave (Quantum world) into a single discrete reality (Newtonian world). It is proven by the double slit experiment (check my post Illusions). It’s a weird world out there that we might never understand. Our brain tries to simplify everything into a binary world – good-bad, love-hate, black-white – and so on; all that is an over-simplification of the reality. That over-simplification brings in the illusion of time, space, free-will, you, me, and everything that we know. We try to explain all the mysteries in a simple way. That is what philosophy has tried, that is what science is trying. I will try the same, but remember, none of it is complete truth. It only gives a ‘simple’ logic to satisfy our mind’s quest to understand the mysterious things we perceive. The truth is, all that you ‘think’ exists around you, just exist in your MIND.
Even the beautiful romantic full moon only exists in your mind. The moon exists only when you see it. When you do not observe it, it becomes a wave of probability. It’s you observing it that makes the difference. In fact your mind is so powerful that it can stop water from boiling just by looking at it. That makes me wonder, the people whom we call abnormal, is their world more real than ours? Is it right to call them abnormal? Think again before you make a joke on them. We might never understand their mind, like we might never understand the reality. Our ‘normal’ reality exists only in our MIND.
Just a little warning before we start…this post might hurt your ego of free-will; might challenge your fundamental believes about life. Are you ready for the challenge? Buckle up, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
