Do you create your own reality?

Postby Chris » Tue Nov 14, 2017 2:48 pm

As many times stated in all sorts of religions and in philosophies, do we create our reality or not? For the scientists among us, it is also part of quantum-physics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfPeprQ7oGc

If you watch the video, you might come to realize, it's the observer that puts the energy in its place. So by observing our environment we create it. In turn our environment will allow us to create new thoughts and create more of our environment. It is an endless cycle of energy creating thought, so the energy can be put in place and again create more thought.

The question you should ask yourself is, do I have destiny or not? Again, it's all down to how you look at it.

Keep in mind that by "observation" in quantum mechanics, what they are really talking about is measurement. When something can be measured, it has an effect on that something.

But as far as us creating our own reality, I do believe that there is an ultimate reality that our bodies are tumbling through. How close that is to what we are seeing and experiencing is the question.

Observing and measuring are the same thing, the act of measuring is observing something in relation to something else.

Do you define your body as something different to reality?

You are correct, but in the original statement "by observing out environment, we create it", seems to imply that only we (or other living things) are having the observer effect on our environment. "Observing" in this case requires no humans or anything alive to be in the area. For example, something being in a temperature well above 0K is considered a measurement and displays the observer effect. But in a lot of experiments (including most of the quantum entanglement experiments), human observation is used as the system of measurement because it is convenient in the experimental constraints.

Defining constraints is nothing else than what is required for humans to understand things. In other words creating boarders or defining boxes or words. At the end of the day, because the universe is infinite, there really is no constraint. And I'm not saying you necessarily have to be alive to be an observer. What I'm pointing out is that you are also an observer. So since you are an observer, how do you choose to observe yourself? You might come to terms with it. You don't have to be the same character you were 5 minutes ago.
