I was giving it as an example only of something that could indeed be a possibility which renders a rock not truly being a rock in essence (what it is
assumed to be without question)
I don't think its something to be proven to science, only something to be aware of. If for instance if its true for your reality you will only find
out through personal experience...trying to prove that to science will be like talking to a wall,. even if you claimed to be able to help scientists
prove it for themselves each as individuals through meditation and what not, do you think the mainstream would be game?
On the other hand lets say something like a glitch in the program occurred and it became blatantly obvious I think people would fall into two
groups...Those who'd believe It were an illusion - a trick of some sort; cast it aside and forget about the whole thing, and those who would be
curious to know what the ramifications are.
Imo this is exactly what is occurring at many levels:
science / metaphysics.
spirituality / religion-shamanism
philosophy / consciousness
and it then loops back to science (however the list can be contended with from any point making each facet equally so a point of which loops back)
I use technology in the list here in the raw context not the nuts and bolts type i.e. shamanism and religion are forms of ancient technology - systems
of structured thought, with the end result of faith as the aim of the method, the technique or technology of coarse is invoked belief.
Science alone however is not a state of mind, those who only wish to trust thier senses use it as a basis for thier life philosophy... when all is
said and done it is a branch of natural philosophy at its roots.
Metaphysics on the other hand is mostly philosophy with rations of "hard facts" here and there, the philosopher is always is ready to let go of what
is believed to be "known" in order to explore other possibilities which may account for the surface appearance of those seemingly "known" things
