Why the Army of Reality always needs more soldiers
What we call Reality is a hall of mirrors. It reflects itself back and forth and builds up a consensus.
People do the same thing. They confirm with one another that the reality they believe is real is, in fact, real.
And having established that, they live out their lives and make the best of it.
But what happens if you defect? What happens if you’re not satisfied to live out the rest of your life inside the space of what everyone assumes is real?
More to the point, what happens if you’re not satisfied to live out the rest of your life inside the space of what YOU assume is real?
This is where a lot of people get off the train. They assert, with great assurance, that what they have discovered is the ultimate frontier. They’ve broken through the illusion. They’ve found out who is running the show from behind the curtain.
And with those discoveries in their pocket, they will live out their lives, confident in the knowledge that they can’t be fooled. They’ve won the prize.
Actually, peering behind the curtain and seeing what’s there is step one. The journey has barely begun.
