Actually Raven, I don't think the Majority of the world's population can handle the "Truth". Given.. there is a minority of people in this world
that can handle the "truth"...but majority rules...so we will always be in the dark...only to guess, theorize and assume.
"According to Hinduism, the world around us is not real, because it is impermanent and ever changing. The world in which we live is a world of
ignorance and falsehood or untruth, called Asat, in contrast to Sat or the world of Truth that exists beyond it, where neither the mind, nor any of
the senses can ever reach even remotely.
According to the concept of maya, the very existence of an individual as a separate entity is unreal. As long as the individual thinks that he is
different from the rest of the creation and strives to work for his own ends, protecting, furthering nurturing and defending his own ego or
individuality, he suffers from illusion and his ego continues its journey into an unknown future shaped by his endless actions and desires. The
purpose of human life is to realize this truth and work for unity with the Divine."

once again, I am not trying to convert, push or change anyone's view on Hinduism..I simply want to share with you concepts of the one of the oldest
"religions" on earth.
