Are Human Illusions Real or Just Illusion: Hoffman

We wake up every day into a world with different emotions and feelings. Some people wake up with a lustless feeling of life whilst other with a lustful feeling to take on the world. We sometimes just need a break from reality to enter a perfect illusion of dreams to which we rarely achieve.

We realise that the illusion world doesn’t exist yet we believe that it is a rather decent and a pleasant one. If we didn’t “dream” we wouldn’t have been excited nor achieved our greatest desires to be much more than we can be. Our dream creates an imaginative reality as we imagine it to be better than our reality.

Illusion or reality

Professors disagree that the human illusions are nothing like the reality, it’s just the way we evolved and gotten to the point where we create a better illusion for ourselves. On the other side are quantum physicists that prove of another world beyond our reach for the ordinary dreamers. While neuroscientists struggle to understand how there can be a thing as a first person reality, quantum physicists struggle with the mystery of how there can be anything but a first person reality. All these roads lead back to the observer to observe.

People create illusions which aren’t real for example when you look at a T.V. that’s giving you a snowy screen, your brain creates an illusion as to something you’ll see on the screen. Our minds are so powerful that we can change even our reality. It has shown that the mind can heal and control the body in reality so we can go in another world which can be between two worlds.

The mind works wonders as we can create the world beyond our wildest dreams, heal our bodies and achieve our inner desires.

Hoffman when asked if everything that we see is an illusion, explained, “We’ve been shaped to have perceptions that keep us alive, so we have to take them seriously. If I see something that I think of as a snake, I don’t pick it up. If I see a train, I don’t step in front of it. I’ve evolved these symbols to keep me alive, so I have to take them seriously. But it’s a logical flaw to think that if we have to take it seriously, we also have to take it literally.”

Hoffman when posed with a question “The world is just other conscious agents?” answered as, “ I call it conscious realism: Objective reality is just conscious agents, just points of view. Interestingly, I can take two conscious agents and have them interact, and the mathematical structure of that interaction also satisfies the definition of a conscious agent.”

Hoffman added, “ As a conscious realist, I am postulating conscious experiences as ontological primitives, the most basic ingredients of the world. I’m claiming that experiences are the real coin of the realm. The experiences of everyday life—my real feeling of a headache, my real taste of chocolate—that really is the ultimate nature of reality.”
