Sensing Reality

To oversimplify, yet still retain the substance of the truth, our world is our senses. In the big picture, we know everything is quantum mechanics, likely some filament of string theory, and we are just a pattern in one large unified field.

What we interpret to be our world is what our senses record it to be. Different degrees of sense, different world. A dog’s world is black and white. A dolphin’s world is sonar. The immediate world is what our five senses record on the dashboard of our brain. Our version of reality is literally in our mind.

And that’s when things get interesting.
