I would like to start a Thread that can go on longer for just a few days before falling into the ATS void.
I want to talk about the possibility realities that exist within an infinite universe, and infinite universes.
Video Here: www.youtube.com...
I would also like to talk about how this affects our realities on a daily basis, with or without your knowledge of it happening in front of you, when
it actually does.
Alternate Dimensions & Alternate realities. I was reading posts about dejavus, Lucid dreaming, and some things dealing with spirituality. this made me
think that a thread like this can explain occurrences of dejavus or seeing oneself in a past life. (alternate parallel realities.)
I want to go over a few things. A few definitions on a few key words that will be discussed here. Any additions VIA replies would be appreciated.
1. the state or quality of being real.
2. resemblance to what is real.
3. a real thing or fact.
4. real things, facts, or events taken as a whole; state of affairs: the reality of the business world; vacationing to escape reality.
a. something that exists independently of ideas concerning it.
b. something that exists independently of all other things and from which all other things derive.
1. the totality of known or supposed objects and phenomena throughout space; the cosmos; macrocosm.
2. the whole world, esp. with reference to humanity: a truth known throughout the universe.
3. a world or sphere in which something exists or prevails: his private universe.
String theory: en.wikipedia.org...
Our reality is what we observe, and experience throughout our lifetime. The reality for one would be different from another person on the opposite
side of the planet. How, if we observe the same thing? Reality is NOT Merely just observation. The image, or information, from words, or pictures,
goes into your brain VIA your eyes (sight sense) and it translates what the object appears to look like. This is somewhat universal. What separates
all of us, is plain old perception, a way of seeing, that fits your own reality.
It was a known reality before Columbus discovered the Americas, that the world was flat, and that the earth was the center of the universe, or that
geological occurrences were by the hands of god.
Well, what’s the difference now? We know better. We have slowly as a society, started to look beyond our existence, beyond our own perceptions to
look beyond what we see in our accepted, finally using our free mind to ponder the mysteries of the universe and perception of reality.
I will give out another example of one’s reality, VS another’s.
Muslim & Christians. Each one has their rules, rite of passage after death, god perception, prophet perception… etc.
On each side, they have their own reality in the persons individually. To a Muslim it’s his/her faith that makes their reality, and the same goes
for Christians. It’s all about perception, and seeing things from a different viewpoint and being brought up by the social accepted reality of how
things should be, or are.
Sorry for the crude example. I know comparing the two are like apples and oranges, but they are still fruits from the same earth.
String theory. This theory has fascinated me since I have read about it, and have seen videos trying to explain it. It’s a theory of everything, and
it makes so much sense… to me at least. This theory explains how time/space works on different levels and dimensions.
Think of yourself on a straight line. That line is your existence through time. Points on that line behind you are the past, and the line in front of
you is the future. Choice, chance, luck, and all the variables of life that you encounter each spring up different dimensions/realities you may not be
aware of. As the video states, there is a possible reality, that the brits still colonized the Americas, that the USA lost WW2, and also a reality
where YOU WERE NOT EVEN BORN!
Back to that straight line of yours. Each time, you have a thought, or make a choice to get up early that day. You do exactly that, and well, you made
a choice to do that and now that choice is now part of your reality. If you had not chosen to wake up early, and you slept in, that would be a
different string (reality) you create! The choice you made might seem small, but now there is an alternate time line that you actually slept in that
day. This was all caused by a choice. A fork in your time line. Option A, or B. take the red or blue pill…. How far the rabbit hole goes is how far
down you think it might go.
I want everyone’s thoughts on this, questions, more information, correcting me if I am wrong in my examples, or anything I said. This is to build up
knowledge on the spiritual and physical realities each and every one of us experiences.
In an alternate reality, this thread has 1000 flags
(Choice, Chance, whichever way you want to put it, creates your reality)
