Reality, perception and illusion
Are they any different? How do they affect your life?
As you watch the sun go down the horizon of earth, you’d bet your life on the idea that the earth was still and it was the sun that came and went. Wouldn’t you have before… well Copernicus in 1508 came up with his theory that it was the sun rather the earth which was at the centre of the universe. Prior to his discovery, the world believed the opposite. So what changed? The perception of the world changed but not the reality… reality doesn’t change based on discoveries and inventions. It’s objective. Illusion is when there’s deception so as to create a false perfection concerning something.
These three terms play a key role to what we believe, good dear and what we hope to be. If someone has convinced you that you aren’t worth anything, that becomes an illusion where the reality has been falsified to create a perception of inadequacy. If history has taught us something, it would be this, men can do what they set their minds to.
Do not let people define these for you. What if copernicus had decided to let the conventional idea remain the dominant theory? We probably wouldn’t have done ahead to make other discoveries since our perception of reality would be skewed in the wrong direction creating false assumptions resulting in less desirable discoveries.
Think on these. What do you hold true that isn’t? What do you believe to the point of death that was born of an idea someone pumped into you? You create a sort of freedom that allows you to find the truth … reality for yourself when you start to ask such questions.
