Firstly, you have to question the existence of the "physical realm"..... time/space itself is susp ...

Democritus was a man beyond his time when he thought of the theory of atom a few centuries BC. Although some people thinks that he was more philosophical than scientific, it was still quite impressive. The Atomic theory was expanded only much later during the 19th century. That is what I found out after some reading. Incidentally, he existed at a time when great philosophers and thinkers were around in Greece.

[quote]"If you want to know the world, first know yourself. For you create the only world you will ever know." Said a wise man. So is the World "out there" or within? That is the question./quote]


It is not easy to understand a quote unless the context is made known. Anyway, my guess is that this wise man is pointing to our inner self or conscience. This conscience is the link to the realm beyond our known physical world. Is that your point?

There is no proof that the world we perceive is not an illusion. Moreover, each one of us perceives a different world, our cognitive process is very subjective. We communicate in symbols, whose meaning is only an
approximation agreed by convention. Do we actually see the same colours or shapes? There can be no proof that we do.
A vivid dream sometimes surpasses reality, but we wake up to realise it was a dream. Who is to say, that it was not the dream that was real, and and our waking state the dream?
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

            You got that right!

There ain't no such thing as IDEOLOGY in the heart & soul of Colonialist-turned Capitalist Imperialism, other than chasing and following the self-interest of greed & extraction of great wealth.

Some people manage to turn the tragedy of their ignorance into a lifelong state of bliss.
