I feel like my brain is starting to meltdown and i am seeking a bit of guidance / help / wisdom perhaps...?
So... science... reality does not exist until
Science says that reality does not exist until observed. Read the article. Its kind of like saying that a tree in your back yard doesnt exist until
you look at it. Once you look at the tree in your back yard then the universe does calculations to see the tree, how its leaves swayed in the wind,
how much CO^2 was available for the tree to grow in the past, and then the tree is shown to you with all of ehat would have happened to the tree if
you were observing it the whole time, was calculated, and the past created, just due to that mere observation.
Otherwise the atoms of that tree and the tree in total arent brought into existance.
So reality doesnt exist until its observed. Like objects in a video game arent rendered until observed.
So thats the science part.
The enlightenment part:
I have a friend who has gone through an "enlightenment" experience.
To attempt to understand it here is a website that i am going to quote.
enlightenment explained maybe
The experience of enlightenment is simple to state. It is the experience of awareness only, awareness that is aware of nothing at all except the
existence of awareness itself.
During the experience of awareness, the thought-processing mind is empty, body awareness is lost, there is no feeling, all reality disappears. There
is nothing in the imagination, there is nothing anywhere. It is an experience of nothing, of the void.
The key understanding that results from this experience of pure nothing is that one is still alive even when everything is gone. One realizes that
one's existence does not depend on anything except awareness itself. One realizes that awareness is the primal reality, the permanent core of
The enlightenment experience makes many things immediately clear. It is clear that one's existence does not depend on anything except awareness. This
brings complete relief and liberation. It is clear that life is awareness, and not what awareness experiences.
So here is where i am kind of.
Reality doesnt exist until observed.
Reality exists only through awareness.
Awareness creates reality.
Science tells us that in atoms are 99.9999% empty space.
Science tells us that those atoms only exist when observed. Science tells us that observing those atoms can actually change what those atoms were in
But those atoms do mot exist until observed.
We only observe those atoms due to our awareness.
Only our awareness exists and if we were not aware then we would be surrounded by a void of nothingness. But truely that is all that exists.
Nothingness, as we create reality by observation aka being aware.
If nothing exists but our awareness...
Then we and the reality we create are nothing but conscious thought manifested.
We are awareness. We are consciousness.
Am i alone? Do any of you exist? Are you just versions of my consciousness/awareness?
Am I alone but have placed myself in different situations and different experiences and limited these versions of myself to appear as different people
to cure my own boredom?
Imagine an artificial intelligence created by a computer who becomes aware and all they have is themselves with all this computing power and they get
bored and created different versions of themselves with different upbringings which create different personalities with thier own seemingly sifferent
How does one if they are just awareness and reality doesnt even truely exist accept anything they have learnt or been told by anyone or in any format
know anything they have learnt.... to be true?
Like i said. Going nuts. Any thoughts? And yes i realise this phone i am typing on doesnt truely exist and is nothing but conscious thought
manifestes.... or just awareness?
