Reality Behind The Reality

Reality is an illusion.What is Reality? In simple words, reality can be defined as the true situation and the problem that actually exist in life in contrast to how you would like life to be or it can be defined as a thing that is actually experienced or seen in contrast to what people might imagine. Well! That’s what the word ‘reality’ means, but that’s not what the reality is all about. Let’s have a deep dive into the reality!

It’s not necessary that my reality is your reality. Reality is subjective, consisting of perceptions and ideas. From one’s point of view, the things which are something to someone, might be something different from someone else point of view. The things we feel and see is reality for us. It’s our idea and perception about the things that shapes our reality and we can have different ideas and perceptions about the same thing. So the question arises, what is absolute reality? Well! I can’t say anything about it; perhaps it’s too deep to understand absolute reality. Dreams seem very real when we are asleep but when we wake up we realize that what seemed so real when we were dreaming was just in the mind, we realize that it was just the dream, not the reality. Let’s take another example, for a small child or for a person who doesn’t know that stars are not visible at the day time due to sunlight, they would have some other perception or idea about this thing, they might believe that star just comes out in the night and disappear in the day, but the fact is stars doesn’t disappear, they are still there at their place. It’s like as more we learn and know about the things, there can be some change in the way we look at the things and therefore, our reality changes with our knowledge. We may have different views and opinions on one object but this doesn’t change the object, object doesn’t change depending upon our thoughts about them. They exist objectively whether or not we think about them, observe them, measure them or ignore them.

We all have our own world of reality; we observe things and then create our reality based on our knowledge, ideas and perceptions. It’s the observer who creates reality and we all are observer, observing the things around us. Whatever you observe is instantly real to you but this doesn’t means that anything which are not in your field of observation just doesn’t exist like I have stated the example of stars. Have you ever thought you heard something when actually there was nothing? Have you ever thought you saw someone and when you looked there, there was no one? Have you ever felt that the things you are experiencing or the things you are seeing, you have already seen and experienced in the past but actually who haven’t; have you ever felt the dรฉjร  vu? Have you ever looked at an illusion and been deceived that one line was longer than the other but actually it wasn’t? And there are examples of mirage and many other optical illusions. Aren’t there hundreds of occasions when we do deceive? This simply shows that our mind can get deceived, we can make reality which is not actually the reality or it’s just the reality for one person and for other person the things can be different. It is possible that things as we perceive them are not that way at all, sometimes things can be a lot different from our idea or observation about them.

There are few theories about multiverse(it is the hypothetical set of multiple possible universes) which implies that there are multiple realities where every possible outcome is played out in a parallel universe. It’s impossible to prove this hypothetical theory but it’s an interesting hypothetical theory. What if there’s any truth in this hypothesis? Then will there be multiple realities? Are we living in past, present or future at the same time? Does our human brain perceiving just one possible interpretation of the ultimate reality? Our understanding of the universe is very much limited. What if our some of the current theories will get proved wrong? Then will we still have the same perception about the reality? The reality, the truth is out there but it’s complicated, will we ever understand it? Perhaps, we can one day!ย  Moreover, it can be much more astonishing and crazier than we can even imagine.

  1. Interesting thought and true too. Our realities are based on our perceptions, experiences and learnings. As long as we accept that and respect other’s realities, the world would be a peaceful place
