"We are not born into the world. We are born into something that we make into the world."

Quote of the Day:

“There is evidence to suggest that our world and everything in it — from snowflakes to maple trees to falling stars and spinning electrons — are also only ghostly images, projections from a level of reality so beyond our own it is literally beyond both space and time.”

Michael Talbot

That book by Talbot is another work that helped coalesce some of what I was experiencing.

Another example of why I find mainstream science often silly. Everything some scientists expand the boundaries (in almost any field) there are those who "just happen to find" that things are more limited. It's as if their minds are so stuck in a rut that moving beyond it is very difficult for them. Compounding the difficulty is that they are unaware that they've circled the wagons.

Not quite but yes a similar identification of non-physical as primary. And in other forms that identification has been made by many before and since Plato.

"The lower-dimensional, gravity-free one has but a single dimension, and its menagerie of quantum particles resembles a group of idealized springs, or harmonic oscillators, attached to one another."

Made me almost cough my beer on the screen. Hiiiiighly interesting stuff.
