Perception.. the hurdle man does not seem to be able to overcome. the hurdle that facilitates 'competition' , 'division', 'segregation' and 'war'. let
me explain why:
there is a wall and it's name is perception.
on one side it is painted blue and the other side is painted red and well of course.. the blue and red meet in the middle to someone standing untop of
a man is standing on the blue side and proudly decrees: the wall is blue
a man i standing on the red side and proudly decrees: the wall is red
blue man takes offense as he can clearly see that the wall is blue and asks if red is calling him a liar
red says no but he is watching the wall and is absolutely certain that it is red
because of this disagreement they end up in dispute!
a man standing untop the wall shouts out to them...
there is no need to fight.. the wall is both red and blue!
they discard his rubbish talk and continue fighting..
after some time he tries again: listen both of you.. on one side the wall is blue and on the other side the wall is red so the wall is both red and
they both call him a madman and name his words as hypocritical and dualistic. they taunt him as an idealist as tho that is such a bad thing to seek
eventually they go to war.. because neither refuses to bend any more than they already have.
"Let war decide the truth and he who wins will win because the God of Truth is on his side"
but war never decided any truth.. the truth is the truth whether you fight over it or not. and this is the curse of humanity that must be
now all that was just an initiation for those about to read what this topic is really about
Einstein said "Nothing can travel faster than the speed of light"
now i ask you to look at perception here.. for it is the double-edged sword which guards the way back to Eden.
most everyone will interpret these words as well "nothing can travel faster than light.. it is impossible!"
but i pose this perspective to you now...
there is no nothing.. only as a flaw in perception. in fact the simple fact that something can be given a name, classification or title.. suggests
that it is 'Something'. A something-nothing perhaps. i expect that tickles your funnybone. so let us accept.. that something cannot be given a name or
title "nothing" without existing. so nothing exists.. meaning.. IT IS SOMETHING!
so if u will indulge me..
if there is no nothing.. and nothing is something.. removing impossibility we will rephrase in this manner.
"Nothing itself.. is the only thing that can travel faster than the speed of light"
so that leaves us with the finality..
"Something can travel faster than the speed of light"
Perception give us two perspectives:
"nothing can travel faster than the speed of light it is impossible"
"Nothing is the only thing that can travel faster than the speed of light"
