That is just as black and white as it can be. I know I must be missing something in my thinking process, but what is it?

Why is my teacup so different from your ocean? You only get gray by mixing black and white.


I suppose it's because you and I look at the world very differently.
The older and I get, and the more I study it, the more convinced I become of the spiritual nature of life and the Universe. I've been reading quite a few books about quantum physics and just how weird this physical universe is. Ernst Schroedinger made the statement, "If your not shocked by quantum physics, then you don't understand it!" It has changed my whole perception of reality. This physical Universe may not be as "real" as what our brains tell us it is. It may all be an illusion.

I'm not as sure about a lot of things as you are. In fact, I'm not 100% sure about anything. I'm 99.97% that there is some form of "life after death", but not 100% sure. I'm 99.97% sure that there is some form of omnipotent consciousness that controls the Universe, but not exactly sure what form it takes or why or how it does it, only that people who come back from near death experiences talk about having seen the Light and talked to super "beings of light" who act and look like they were Angels (whatever that means). I believe that they've brought back enough "evidence" to convince me at least that there may be some validity to what they say. - Art

The Universe as a Hologram
Does Objective Reality Exist, or is the Universe a Phantasm?

In 1982 a remarkable event took place. At the University of Paris a research team led by physicist Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century. You did not hear about it on the evening news. In fact, unless you are in the habit of reading scientific journals you probably have never even heard Aspect's name, though there are some who believe his discovery may change the face of science.
