According to Quantum Physics and Quantum Principle, as stated in 'Mysticism and the New Physics' by Michael Talbot, we the individual are not just an observer of the world, but are one with it.
We do not just observe the world as an outsider looking in, we are inside and connected to everything we see.
The debate revolves around our consciousness and its affects on reality. One argument is that our consciousness in fact creates our reality. Through our own thought processes, we influence the world around us and create reality.
Consciousness is our perception, awareness, thoughts and intentions. This has a significant impact on our direct and indirect reality.
Reality is the state of things that exist. This includes everything around you, everything you see, feel, touch, smell, hear and taste.
There is also the unknown elements of reality, and this is a major interest of mine. With the unknown there is the unknown which can be known, or will be known in the future, and the unknown which will forever remain unknown.
To understand how, why or if our consciousness creates reality, we need a greater understanding of reality itself. More on this to come.
