Perceptions of Reality posted 06 January 2007 in Philosophy DiscussionPerceptions of Reality by avatar_of_existence, Peralogue

It is important to keep in mind that we experience the world with severly limited sensory input (limited as compared to perhaps a cat or a whale). Science is based on 'objective' findings, meaning findings that fall within it's parameters. "Science is the myth of cause and effect." - F.N.
Taking psychedellic drugs can shatter and redefine reality. I have had experiences where the day after intoxication I had a feeling that I would "never be able to go back". Of course, this can be entirely shattering, or it can be an experience of rebirthing. It can also be neither. I have mostly experienced it as a good thing, at one point it drew me back from the brink of suicide.
Reality is defined to a large degree by that which we obsess about in our day to day lives. view post
