First I need to say that twitter sucks. I wanted to make this thread on twitter because of the bigger audience but 40 characters is just not enough.

A bunch of you already know that I like to sit around sometimes and do nothing but imagine things and think.
I was thinking about myths and legends. From dragons to humans being super strong, half gods and trolls.
There's a theory that has some lose bases in quantum physics. Particles and waves decide to be particles or waves depending on being observed. Or that subatomic matter is both a particle and wave at the same time. ,nature%20haven%27t%20been%20observed%20at%20the%20same%20time.

We've also on these boards heard the theory that human consciousness is creating reality.
What if it is? In a very real physical way. But over time. Long periods of time.
What if those myths were all real things simply because conscious beings as a majority truly believed that they were. And believed it over 1000's of years of time?
What if since the dawn of scientific thinking we have erased those things from reality. They do not exist because not enough of us truly believe that they do?

I submit the alien question. Over time more and more people have come around to the idea that not only are aliens real but that they visit earth. Just over my lifetime I have seen this grow from some weird old guy films what is probably a model ufo flying over his farm to the united states military admitting that they see them too.
maybe there is a tipping point. When the majority of human minds on earth (why just on earth? ) believe that aliens are real the subatomic particles will "pop" all kinds of life forms into existence across the universe.

All the ones that got erased when consciousness decided they weren't real.

That's not how subatomic physics works.

I have similar thoughts often, one must take in to consideration that what we perceive as the real, is just data that is being absorbed by our biological organs and interpreted purely by our brains/mind. And this limitation does not stop on a human being, it also effects every scientific instrument we have created, it will always just be a form of perceived data.

Then there are things like merging galaxies, all bets are off and you can throw physics out the window.

Or how about time? There is no time. Just now.

But anyways, there are things out there, most likely they surround us right now, it is highly unlikely hat the human consciousness is that important in that hierarchy, we are more like fun little filters, and we just decided to filter out many things, a shame really, we did it probably because we are a pretty neurotic species.

It’s as valid a theory as any, considering everything we experience is relayed via electrical forces in nerve tissue.

So it makes sense that the more of creation we are capable of observing, the more our ability to comprehend increases.

If things got erased when consciousness decided they weren’t real Santa wouldn’t exist and novels wouldn’t be authored or read. What a depressing thought.

In my opinion the observable evidence suggests that old and invalidated perceptions of reality don’t disappear, they become some kind of cultural or ancestral knowledge.

What reality is depends on what time is. Is time irreducible, fundamental, an ultimate descriptor of bedrock reality? Or is our subjective sense of flowing time, generated by our brains that evolved for other purposes, an illusion? But what about our intuition? Does it not matter?

Why would we create a reality, that being in it, would cause us to question its existence? Wouldn’t that be self defeating and without purpose?

Why does there need to be a purpose at all?

It would be a catch 22, with us creating vs experiencing reality, like a tree falling and no one's around, would it still make a noise.

There could be higher or probably lower, but intermediate form of life, that just pops in out of existence on a regular. Heck we're comprised of many different creatures aren't we've? I've often pondered the AA theory with mythology an what not, but after reading some more primitive myths, yea, thank Jesus.
