This is a good read. It explains why there will be a paradigm shift happening, which will be the reverse of what we currently think of reality.
We currently think reality is "out there" and that it exists outside and independent of us. The new (super)paradigm will be like this. There is an underlying reality, but we never experience it directly. What we perceive, what we see is nothing but the construction of our consciousness. Everything that exists around us is created by consciousness and is projected according to it.
Reality (everything in the universe and every experience we have) is all in the mind. All within our consciousness, and is created by our consciousness.

I'm telling you guys, reality is like a dream. There is the majority of people who can't control their dreams, and then there is the rare few who learn how to "Lucid dream" and CAN control their dreams and make their own reality.

Did someone will me into existence? Who on Earth would do such a thing?
This reflects a unique property of light. In the space time continuum there is no separation between the emission of a light ray and its absorption. What Einstein called the "space time interval" between the two ends of a light ray is always zero.
