@tangledupinplaid21 I’m glad you liked it.
“Just wanted to add that while I 100% agree with you, I don’t think people should ever shy from the magical or unexplainable.” @dominickjohn
What makes it magical? It’s just a label. And what does that label really mean?
“In contemplating levitation… what if movement itself is the mind shifting to extremely similar parallel realities?” @dominickjohn
Good question, and I really think that’s what’s going on. This concept of “attraction” seems to imply something like that. Consciousness is kind of like a pair of binoculars, it’s very focused and only shows what it’s pointed at. If you move them, you see something else, that doesn’t mean reality changed or that things were manifested in front of you, you just changed looked another direction. That’s how I believe things work.
But it’s really just another “way of understanding,” another set of beliefs about the details of “how shit works.” It’s not really necessary, and we don’t actually KNOW the details, we just believe.
“In contemplating manifesting out of thin air… what if energy couldn’t be created or destroyed, but transformed?” @dominickjohn
That’s how the physicists say things work, and it sure makes a lot of sense, and it seems that’s how things really do work. It’s nothing new, though. And it is the scientific consensus. Everything is pulses/particles, (aka energy/mass, the essence of reality) which is constantly rearranging itself. Everything is made from something else.
“They might not achieve the initial starry-eyed wishes, but if some of those what if’s turned out to be true and proven, it’d have a serious real effect on the reality we live in. The only difference between crazy and genius is that genius knows it’s crazy” @dominickjohn
Reality doesn’t change, reality just is. But subjective “reality” is completely the result of beliefs and knowledge, so yeah you’re right that understanding (or just contemplating) those what-ifs would completely overhaul one’s “reality,” which I can validate from experience. It’s the key to a “higher existence.”
I agree about the craziness stuff as well.
You don’t really need a conscious understanding of things in order to know things, nor to utilize that knowledge. That’s why silencing the mind is so profound. The less you think, the more you see. And the eyes cannot lie.
