    Moonbeams & Magic

    What is real?

    That, of course, depends upon perspective. To quote the Matrix, “If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.”

    If you’re at a magic show, there is a huge disparity between what you perceive as real, and what the magician understands as real. We know, for example, that depending upon your cultural background, you can perceive the exact same event in two different ways. This is part of the SLANT we inherit from the society in which we live, and it contributes to a subconscious human-centered perspective.

    What is, is. We refer to the “real” real world as “What Is”. Independent of observation, but, lacking omniscience, we can only see slices, tiny pieces of the What Is world at a time. That is then passed through filters, biases, and our SLANT.

    In our incessant quest for knowledge we endlessly seek information which we do not currently possess. We try to understand as much as we can. The moonbeam above is not What Is, but it is all we can see. It is a conscious human-centric view. Yet, once you understand that a beam of narrow moonlight does not follow you across the water, your conscious and then your subconscious can add another dimension of understanding beyond the limitations of your immediate perception.

    People love the mystery of the unknown. We love magic. We are wired for it. And we are also programmed to settle for certain perceptions of the world – SLANT – that have no basis in science.

    At Y Worlds, we are integrating each of those disparate perspective views and collating them into a unified set of models that will help each person push away from their own limited, isolated perspective in order to interpret the world systemically. Instead of a dogmatic human-centric understanding, we seek a convergence of scientific lines of thoughts and inquiry that provides a push against the SLANT of inaccuracy and outdated programming.

    There is a basis for everything. There is a reason for everything. And we do not know much about anything. Including ourselves.

    The world remains magical. Life is magical. Human interaction is magical. Subatomic particles and energy are magical. The universe is magical. There are curtains separating us from What Is. And the question is, how badly do we want to see what is behind the curtains?

    Our pursuit of Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems requires conscious effort and intent to better understand What Is in order to reach our potential. This pursuit, the dream of embracing ourselves and our world and What Is, has plenty of room to enjoy the moonbeams and magic of our life while simultaneously taking on the conscious challenges, and sharing the benefits, of never being fooled.
