Sensorial Perception and Mental Interpretation

We, the humans can capture less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum, in a same way we can’t hear the sounds of all frequencies, and therefore we can’t see and hear all the things present around us, and so we miss out most of what’s happening all around us. There are other beings, with other perceptual systems than ours that see and hear a totally different universe. There are animals without eyes that create an amazingly accurate version of their surroundings by using sonar. Some even see color based on temperature, and not wavelength.
Now the question arises, is there an ultimate reality independent of our sensorial perception and mental interpretation? Or maybe, such question is pointless as long as we ponder it trapped in our human bodies. We make our own reality, things can be different from others perceptions, from other’s point of view.
We have created our own world with our sensorial perception and mental interpretation. If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to experience it, does it make a sound? No, there is just the oscillation of air particles. Until there is an aural system present, capable of vibrating to the range of that wave, there is no sound. The universe is a hologram where everything exists everywhere at all times. Our senses simply tune into fractions of the whole. Much like a radio receiver, once turned on, can focus on a specific frequency while thousands more are still around. In the end, I would like to say we have the power to explore the unknown.
