The World is Not an Illusion
Contrary to the common New Age view, the world out there is not an illusion, but the reality is that we are only able to perceive a small fraction of it.
Even our most sensitive instruments cannot begin to perceive all that is going on around us.
These instruments can even give us a highly skewed interpretation of the world around us, because we tend to create instruments to perceive what we think we should see!
Realize then that wherever you are right now, there is far more going on around you than you could possibly imagine.
While it is possible that you could have a very large imagination, that imagination is still limited by your senses, because it is nearly impossible to imagine that which we can’t even conceive perceptually.
We live in an infinite world made up of the known and the unknown.
Our mistake comes from our insistence on trying to fit the unknown into rules that we have developed through the little that is known.
Instead of looking into the unknown with a broad perspective, we tend to look into it with a narrow focus, trying to see what we expect to see because of what we already know.
But the unknown is the unknown because it exists in a realm beyond our current perceptual and intellectual capabilities.
The only way that we will be able to make any headway into the unknown is by expanding our intellect enough, so that it is able to understand that the broad range of possibilities out there can only be assessed by swiping clean our current expectations.
