Apparently, because of a perspective problem.

This is a truly difficult problem when it comes to interpreting the world through the senses. Countless illusions seem to defy reality… yet they only defy the reality that the individual perceives. The perception of the viewer seems perfectly rational through their perspective… the real problem lies with the fact that our senses cannot be relied upon to form rational explanations, and that rational explanations in and of themselves can often be utterly and completely false!!!

It seems excessively contradictory to rely upon extra-sensory (Math is not a sense. Logic is not a sense. Imagination is arguably a sense, but not a classically considered one. Free-will is not a sense. (In the classical sense of the term ‘sense’)) perceptions to define my sensory perception of the world.

Yet so it is.

For instance; whatever it is that you do, wherever it is that you work, whoever you are and whatever your intelligence level (to a point, i suppose)… you know goddamn well that you are more intelligent than the stupid motherfuckers who lived on this planet 10,000 years ago. Now, if you could talk to one of those ancestors, if you could go back and speak with them for a while, you could teach them countless things that you yourself don’t even realize that you know! Even with the most elementary of modern teachings, you could quite possibly change all of history if you went back to the stone age with just that tiny fraction of what we know now.

So has reality itself changed? No, of course not. The only thing that has changed is our perception of reality.

That, is amazing.

  1. I agree completely…I think of that all the time…of how people used to perceive reality, and how reality hasn’t changed, but our amount of knowledge has increased, and I wonder how much more we, as a people, will know in another 10,000 years…and I think to myself, what do I think I know that is completely false?

    • That we won WW3? possibly not. Seems like the communist state somehow planted someone who would completely take over our medical health systems to destroy that option. I wonder.
