Physical reality is defined in Metaphysics as an image being projected and then perceived by the non-physical Mind. Physical reality, from a metaphysical viewpoint, is often referred to as "not real" or "an illusion". While it is true that the physical Universe we perceive with our five senses is in fact nothing more than an image in our mind, it is nonetheless very "real". Physical Reality
Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn't matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart. Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing. The problem with this feat is that it violates Einstein's long-held tenet that no communication can travel faster than the speed of light. Since traveling faster than the speed of light is tantamount to breaking the time barrier, this daunting prospect has caused some physicists to try to come up with elaborate ways to explain away Aspect's findings. But it has inspired others to offer even more radical explanations. University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram.The Holographic Universe
The standard model of cosmology predicts that the universe is infinite and flat. However, cosmologists in France and the US are now suggesting that space could be finite and shaped like a dodecahedron instead. They claim that a universe with the same shape as the twelve-sided polygon can explain measurements of the cosmic microwave background – the radiation left over from the big bang – that spaces with more mundane shapes cannot (J-P Luminet et al. 2003 Nature 425 593).
Is the Universe a Dodecahedron?
It has been found recently (in 2005, actually), that the golden ratio plays a significant role in atomic physics in that it governs what is known as the Bohr radius (the radius of atoms and ions that enables quantitative discussion of bond lengths between atoms and partial ionic character (D. Yu et al.)
The dream argument is the postulation that the act of dreaming provides preliminary evidence that the senses we trust to distinguish reality from illusion should not be fully trusted, and therefore any state that is dependent on our senses should at the very least be carefully examined and rigorously tested to determine whether it is in fact reality.
Enlightenment must be like realizing this is a dream,and an understandance of our dreams where our five senses are being decieved by the mind. How do you know your mind is not playing tricks on you? I would Imagine Enlightenment would be like Realizing your dreaming in this reality like a lucid dream. Kind of like neo in the matrix where he lives a double life whenever he went to sleep.
In reality, the substance of the universe is consciousness.
In Sacred Geometry we can see natures first pattern,
Knowing your are Dreaming changes little. Unless you are able to control the aspects of the Dream. I am lucid dream and often know when I am dream although it does little to change the circumstances or nature of the dream.
