When I was younger my understanding of the definition of “real” was “that which is physical.”
Traditionally, that has been the requirement for being “real.” The state or quality of being physical is to be real.
How Dictionary.com defines real:
- true; not merely ostensible, nominal, or apparent:
the real reason for an act.
- existing or occurring as fact; actual rather than imaginary, ideal, or fictitious:
a story taken from real life.
- being an actual thing; having objective existence; not imaginary:
The events you will see in the film are real and not just made up.
Objective science or materialism does not comprehend that there is an inner reality that forms the physical world. Quantum mechanics proves otherwise, although its implications are largely ignored.
Einstein’s friend and colleague, David Bohm, for example, is known as the most influential physicist of the 20th century for his scientific paradigm that opens the door to the existence of an inner reality. Bohm coins the terms “implicate order” to describe the source of the physical world. “Information,” he says, guides matter formation.
What we think constitutes reality is the quality of being measurable and demonstrable. Since traditional science wasn’t sophisticated enough to measure consciousness and demonstrate and measure its power and ability to form matter, thought itself became “not real” in the eyes of mainstream science.
Because of the obvious impact of physical things and phenomena on our five senses, people have always regarded physical objects and phenomena as being real, and so science’s official stance only reinforced the seeming obvious fact that physical things were real.
The development of the definition of “real” goes back thousands of years. A fire could burn us, for example, which we all needed to learn at an early age just to be safe in our environment. An imagined fire, however, could not burn us.
What we missed in all of this is what previously could not be measured or demonstrated, but now can. Objects are now understood to be like holograms. A book is just a field of moving energy that gives the illusion of fullness and solidity to our physical senses. Because the nonphysical energy-containing-information (or wave-aspect) within all matter has now been demonstrated and measured by quantum mechanics, it has to be considered “real.”
However, our entire civilization is programmed psychologically at the deepest level to believe what has already been decided, that thoughts are not really real, that only physical reality is real. Our previous scientific position that physical things are real has reinforced our sense’s perceptions and basic notion that physical things and phenomena are reality.
For these reasons and also because of cognitive dissonance, it is difficult for most people and civilization as a whole to change their thinking on this subject of what constitutes “reality.”
It is not a physical building that makes a school real, it is the integrity of the information that it conveys.
Thoughts and emotions are as real as objects, in fact more real. When we add to this realization the findings of quantum mechanics (everything has a wave aspect, etc…), we can learn to redefine what is “real” in our own minds.
Physical reality is a miniscule fraction of the totality of reality. Inner dimensions, probabilities and time-systems are reality. These inner realities are infinite. They are our source. The physical self is a projection of the inner self’s energy.
The authentic inner self is the real self, but this is the self you are. When you follow your energy inward you can discover that the inner world operates by different rules. You have an inner body and inner senses that are well-equipped to operate on this level of reality.
Do we have inner senses?
Yes we do have inner senses. Subjective phenomena like a thought or emotion does not have a direct physical impact on us in the same way a table does when we touch it. We may not immediately experience a thought through our physical senses, but we would experience the full dimensions of that thought through another set of senses if had not forgotten how.
Our objective sciences do not realize that we have an inner reality we exist within.
Orthodox science has refused to comprehend our inner senses because doing so would throw the materialistic paradigm into question.
Physical objects are convincing because of the way in which they impact our senses, but they are not the reality for which they stand. The primary reality of any object is in the inner information-force that manifests it. The reality of any given object or event is in the energy-containing-information (consciousness) that forms it.
What is real is “consciousness,” and physical matter is a kind of mirage or shadow cast by the primary reality within.
What is “real?”
Since the message in this site is that the primary reality of anything is in the energy and intelligence that formed it—in consciousness which is the source of the physical world—we must redefine what we call “real,” or “reality.”
Real school recognizes reality and is real because it is based on and conveys real facts derived from quantum mechanics rather than falsities from materialism.
Subjective studies are the only real studies
I did not study these theories from the outside like a scientist studying something without experiencing it. I tested the new paradigm directly and fully through entering into it and living it for 45 years in a way few have.
