Shadows On The Wall - What is Reality?

If we are going to lead a life that is self-determined and strives for freedom we need to be able to distinguish between what is real and when we are being manipulated by others or by ourselves.

Shadows On The Wall

Over 2400 years ago the Greek Philosopher Plato wrote the "Allegory Of The Cave" , which, is a story about prisoners chained inside a cave from birth, and how their perception of reality has been created for them by unseen puppet masters who use fires located behind the prisoners to cast shadows on the wall in front of them.

 

Today much of what we perceive to be real is little more than fabricated stories and images created by modern day puppet masters to influence our perception of reality. (Puppet masters include government propagandists, cable news, bloggers, radio hosts, editorial writers and social media content developers, etc. )

 

The song, "Shadows On The Wall" is a reminder for us to be aware that things are not always as they seem, and that we are all ultimately responsible for seeking reliable sources of truth and knowledge to help us make informed decisions.

I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth - and truth rewarded me! (Simone de Beauvior)

 

 

 

The Quantum Gravitry Research Project:

 

What if the very fabric of space and time isn't made of one-dimensional strings or energy as we think of it, but instead was simply a code or a language made from a geometric projection? Quantum Gravity Research is a Los Angeles based team of mathematicians and physicists working on developing a theoretical framework for a first-principles unified quantum gravity theory they call emergence theory. Still in the early stage of development, emergence theory attempts to unify, through mathematical and scientific rigor, the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, and consciousness. This film is presented in layperson terms and explains basics tenets of emergence theory, quantum mechanics and digital physics in ways that are meant to be communicative and fun. However, if you'd like to read any of the scientific and more technical papers, please visit our website. PLEASE NOTE: Please note this fundraising project is now closed so you cannot make any donations at this time. We appreciate all of the generous support we have received.

 

 

Quantum Gravity Research:

 

Is there an 8-dimensional "engine" behind our universe? Join Marion Kerr on a fun, visually exciting journey as she explores a mysterious, highly complex structure known simply as 'E8'--a weird, 8-dimensional mathematical object that for some, strange reason, appears to encode all of the particles and forces of our 3-dimensional universe. Meet surfer and renowned theoretical physicist Garrett Lisi as he rides the waves and paraglides over the beautiful Hawaiian island of Maui and talks about his groundbreaking discovery about E8 relates deeply to our reality; and learn why Los Angeles based Klee Irwin and his group of research scientists believe that the universe is essentially a 3-dimensional "shadow" of this enigmatic... thing... that may exist behind the curtain of our reality.

  • If you agree with the following statement click on the 'Write a Comment' link below to add your name and location and any message of love you have to share with the world. I want to live in a world where - we work to build each other up instead of tearing each other down - we look to the future and learn from the past but are not obsessed with reliving it - we value our principles too highly to ever sell them - and where we use the Power of Love to heal the wounds that were inflicted by those with a Love of Power
  • Epilogue Please scroll to the bottom of this forum page to add your own comments or content. Can the answers to the following questions lead us to a truer view of reality, a life of greater meaning and a deeper love for the world around us? What knowledge is within our grasp? Why do we let what we don't know divide us? How do we ensure that what we are experiencing is the most relevant version of reality for us? What is Truth, what is Time? How do they impact our perception of reality? Is Socrates right, does the "Examined Life" make our life more worth living? Does understanding where we came from help us understand where we are and where we are going? What is more important, where we came from (the past), where we are (the present), or where we are heading (the future)? Does our life have meaning? Does it matter if our life has meaning? What questions should we ask ourselves when we are looking for what gives our lives meaning? How important is understanding ourselves for our lives to be meaningful? What role does, "Who I Am." play in how meaningful life is, and does it have any determining influence on what the purpose of life is? Does "Meaning" lead to "Purpose" and ultimately to "Fulfillment" ? Does finding meaning open a doorway to connect to others, and to the universe itself, or does searching for, and developing those connections lead to meaning? How does connecting to one another help us understand our world and our place in it better? Does learning to love ourselves enable us to fall in love with others, and our ability to love others lead to opening our hearts to strangers and the world we live in? If we all became capable of truly loving one another, wouldn't this world become a wonderful place for all of us to live in? If "Love" isn't the answer, then, what is?
  • Love Is All We Need To Know Love is All We Need To Know (Fernando Varella Version) Love is the power of the gravitational pull that the soul exerts upon the universe, and that the universe has upon each soul. Are you tired of the hatred and negativity that divide our politics, dominate cable news and spread like a wildfire through social media sites? Do you believe that our world would be better off if we treated each other with more love and fairness, and if we spread hope and respect instead of fear and hatred. The world pays attention when a message is simple, forceful and has broad support. If you agree with the following quote please click on the link under the last line of the statement below and add your name to the list. Join us in this effort to show the world that it is time for a change... "I believe we get further when we build each other up instead of knocking each other down, when we look to the future instead of dwelling in the past, when our principles are valued too much to put them up for sale, ...and I believe that the power of love is stronger, will last longer and will create a better world than the love of power ever could!" The Power of Love Petition Of all the gifts we have to give to ourselves, to each other and to the world, love is the greatest. Love is a pathway of enlightenment and connectivity that we travel, along which we find the strength, respect, compassion, understanding, forgiveness, inspiration and empathy needed to free our world from lies, fear, revenge, greed, hatred and tyranny. Please scroll to the bottom of this forum page to add your own comments or content. Philosopher Erich Fromm wrote: "If I can say, “I love you,” I say, “I love in you all of humanity, all that is alive; I love in you also myself.” Love touches every aspect of our lives. Love is nothing else than the realization of the species because in love , one is related to other human beings as one is to oneself. In love we share the suffering of others as our own., and in Love we find the voice to communicate with the infinite. One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, and compassion. (Simone de Beauvior) God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we, murderers of all murderers, console ourselves? (Friederich Nietzsche "The Parable of A Madman") Even before Nietzsche, wrote of how science, progress and modernization had killed God, Philosphers had filled countless volumes, and had dedicated centuries of thought to developing a moral code of ethics and duty based on secular reasoning and rationale. Their great challenge was to justify why, outside of any kind of metaphysical belief sysetem, independent, consciously aware, free people should support universal laws of morality and justice that require them to occasionally act against their own interest in support of some social or altruistic goal. The only realy answer to this question, is because their love for someone, or something else is greater than the sacrifice they are making for the object of their love. Love is All We Need To Know!!
