Physics, the cosmos, and perception
by Jon Rappoport

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.”
