Physics, the cosmos, and perception
by Jon Rappoport
April 13, 2018
Whenever physicists and spin-off commentators start talking about Quantum Theory, they always come back to the question about perception:
How much of what we perceive with our eyes, our minds, our instruments is really there, and how much depends on how we are looking at it, or the fact that we are looking at it?
This question fascinates people. It should.
Perception itself is shaped by imagination.
In case you hadn’t noticed, more and more scientific emphasis is being placed on genetics, DNA, the workings of the brain, as a way of explaining the “function” of the human being at every level.
However, most levels aren’t even touched by this exploration.
A person whose imagination is asleep wouldn’t know that.
If you want to use the world “evolution,” then say that the next stage of evolution involves the human being living by and through imagination.
When I make this point, I’m sometimes asked, “But what would we imagine?” That’s like an acting student telling his coach, “You want me to improvise this role? What should I spontaneously improvise?”
People are heavily invested in What Is. They are so heavily invested they don’t want to take their eye off that ball. They want to stay with What Is all the way into the grave. They have taught themselves to believe this is what they’re supposed to do. This is life. This is what it means. Which is like saying, “I’m blind to 99.9 percent of What Could Be, because I’ve sold out to What Is.”
If the universe could talk, it would say, “I’m playing a massive joke on you. I’m sitting here with all my titanic mass and energy and I’m convincing you that What Is is your best play. I’m giving you the very best reason to stay with What Is. But I’m just one work of art out of a possible infinite number of works of art. And here’s the kicker. You can create your own.”
Some people are inspired by that idea, and some people don’t want to hear it.
For most people, let’s face it, the devotion to What Is is a religion. It sums up their lives and concerns and actions and thoughts.
Here is a note I made in preparation for my first collection, The Matrix Revealed:
“Conditioning is focused on planting false realities. But that program would have no chance of succeeding unless people were already married to the notion that there is a single and final reality. That’s the key. If you break through and understand that delusion, you enter a whole different territory. You go from thinking you’re in a museum that has only one painting to realizing the museum has a thousand paintings—and then you wake up even more, and you see that you could be a painter.”

While reading this gem, I had a visual of all our contrived connections just disappear and everyone was left with a fresh start. Nice.
It sure is difficult to find any particular place or location where fulfillment exsists.
My 56yrs of non-conformity has brought forth the realization that emptiness resides everywhere! Being an accute observer of human simplicity and human discontentment, I’ve learned that failure comes in many forms. My escape has been art from the heart! Over a period of twenty years now I’ve found the only fulfillment that’s had any deep satisfaction, and it’s been carving, sculpting and dreaming of a greater purpose.
Thanks for your inspirational and deep rationalization of the irrational.
In grade school and high school, I believed the world of education was filled with right and wrong answers and my job was to maximize the right answers and avoid the wrong ones. This belief was a subset of a larger program that implied that the only way for me to be loved was to achieve and do right.
My more imaginative and creative inner self nagged at me to find something better, real love, real life, true God. That creative center was not satisfied with normal Christianity if it did not include miracles. My inner self wanted something broader and brighter than religion, materialism and a world without healing. I needed the supernatural, a life of miracles and a God of love.
At about age 31 I got closer to that answer and have pursued the dream since then.
Reading this caused memory flashes of recent conversations with people stuck in What Is. Then dawned on me I was in that What Is mindset too, maybe just slightly more awake to those unable to be open. Long time thought of self as outside the box thinker, now realized it was only a slightly bigger box. Still had solid walls though. Then rejected that bigger box notion and became aware the box is just a concept. There is no box. Never was. Just an illusion. Something to anchor onto for saftey.
Within a few seconds of reading this I conceptualized a future farm, growing living things to help people, hemp, ginko trees, an orchard, and it is good. Been holding myself back from fulfilling this possible reality, yet it lingured in a fuzzy background mind abstract for years.
The depth and scope of societal conditioning to focus on What Is we are all subject to is astonising. Finding this out is like peeling layers of an onion with no core. Potentialities already exist, just waiting for us to capture and manifest. Rappaport, this post affected me in a wonderful way. Appreciate and complement you on this work.
When we’re finally ready to find out about reality, or truth, if we are serious in our search, help will come to us.
Something about seek ye within.
Jon I really appreciate your outstanding effort to enlighten the world. Great work.
“In case you hadn’t noticed,

It’s almost as if,
these scientists aren’t human.
Or, most forgetful ones.
Perhaps, & only perhaps, David Jacobs has an interesting thesis.
