How Real Are You

Are You Real   [1]   [2]   [3]
Part 1 – Are You Real?
Part 2 – How Are You Real?
Part 3 – How Real Are You? (this post)



This is the third teaser post (the first was the post ‘Are You Real’) of a three installments discussion series on this blog that discuss ‘The Issues Of Reality’, what our reality firstly and basically (i.e. primarily) is. Here we are discussing existential realities (i.e. what is existentially real as opposed to what is fantasized, imagined, theorized or hypothesized), not the numerous other kinds or types that are also being discussed and studied by science and explored in fiction.

In the first teaser of this three teaser series, I posed a few questions that hinted at the many — actually near infinite — possibilities to reality (which will be discussed in the actual discussion multi parts series ‘The Issues Of Reality’). In the second teaser, more hints to the answers (all the answers to these that will be discussed in the discussion series proper) are given as clues to the facts and truth about our existential reality. And in this third teaser we address the issue of how real is our reality, seeing how many to most things (that we experience moment by moment of the process of our lives, personally individually and also collectively) are constantly, unceasingly changing in a consistent and known (i.e. understood by and through all the knowledge of our reality that humankind have learned and accumulated) manner.


How Real Are You?

Every night we go to sleep and every morning we wake up (generally speaking or as an average norm). When we are awake, we are usually mostly conscious and functional, functioning in a fairly consciously awareness in a mostly self actuated and self impetus driven manner (including reacting and responding to events and situations we encounter). But when we are asleep, we (our minds and brains) are (according to medical science) either partially or almost fully shutdown (i.e. turned off). This is what we can sense (i.e. make sense of ourselves when we are asleep and about others when they are asleep) as also have been confirmed by what our scientists have discovered, about our sleep state.

Our scientists, the brilliant geniuses’ men and women of science, also tell us that we are so called self aware. This is because (according to our scientists) when we look in the mirror and see our reflection, we recognize ourselves that we are we, and that we are not some strangers or strange things and not us. The same then will hold true if we or someone else took a photo of us (together with a group of other people such as in a group photo) then from the photo (either digital image or printed image), we would looking at the photo be able to recognize ourselves (separately from all the others in the group, our identical siblings if we have any neither necessarily included nor excluded). That according to science (at least at one ancient time of dark ignorance which may or may not necessarily be true anymore) is the definitive way or means for us to know for a certainty that we are so called self aware.

A famous (i.e. famous among the communities: of contemplative thinkers andor the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of knowledge and enlightenment) person going by the name of RenĂ© Descartes (1596–1650), was attributed to have asserted ‘Cogito ergo sum’ (or ‘I think therefore I am’ or ‘I am thinking, therefore I exist’ or ‘I am able to think, therefore I exist’). Some one smart may asked, ‘So what happened when he went to sleep and stop thinking? Did he stop existing?’

So what do you (the readers) think, do we stop existing and therefore cease (even if just momentarily for some duration of time) to be real (i.e. exist) as us, whatever we are or think of ourselves as, when we go to sleep, or are put to sleep (into a medically induced coma) when we undergo some medical surgical procedure?

What about when we become unconscious such as when we faint, suffer a serious concussion, get knocked out by some gas emission or smoke, or from some fluid or food we imbibe, or enter into a coma for whatever any other number of reasons, do we cease to exist until we regain our consciousness if we regain consciousness?

So then, when are we real and when are we not real? Do you flip or slip in and out or toggle between being real and being not real constantly?

Is it as the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of science have been explicitly saying (about reality and therefore consequently about us as the product and an element or compound element, of that absolute nothing reality of both particle physics and quantum mechanics aka quantum physics) that we can slip in and out of existence (i.e. toggling or flipping from being real to being unreal periodically continuously) to be both existing and non existing at the same time?


The Issues Of Reality

As I have mentioned in the first post of these three teaser posts series on the issues of reality, what is our reality and also all possible (all that is possible not necessarily real) realities, then ultimately what is the ultimate reality is a very large discussion that would take up several voluminous books to full explore. So the discussion series ‘The Issues Of Reality’ to answer all these teaser questions is meant only as a very concise discussion focusing only on the most basic elements or parameters that allow for and to give substance, for the functional expression to our reality.

Because, as anyone intelligent would (or should anyway) know, reality is firstly an expression of process and secondly but actually primarily, an expression of functionality, because process cannot be expressed without functionality which science will only acknowledge as causes and effects. The effects are the purpose for the causes, causes that produce no effects are not causes but are meaningless non expression (i.e. total absolute meaningless nothing) in and of reality (meaning they have no meaning whatsoever in the same way as a statement which says, ‘this statement is false’). Science cannot (because it must not) recognized functionality as an expression of reality (except as functions, of something taking inputs to give andor produce outputs). Because in so doing, science would have to recognize purpose as a requirement for reality to exist, to be possible. And that would completely destroy their only basis to be able to gorge their egos to insanity.

But why would it be important for us to understand reality, even just only our reality?

So that we can understand consistency. And be able to put two and two from the understanding of consistency, to therefore be able to tell if something don't fit (i.e. are invalid, erroneous, contradictory or a lie)! And if we understand the concept of consistency then we would (or should anyway) know that the concepts in the terms absolute and default are about foundation basis to consistency, that they are the definitives of consistencies. Then we would (or should anyway) know and understand that to be unchanging (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8) is to be totally (in all possible contexts and aspects) consistent.

One of the most easily evident truth to our reality is that there is a prevailing and predominance of consistency in our reality, that things exist, forms and function in a consistent manner, each not only within its own operation areas of existence and functional expression but also in its interaction with other objects of (the same) reality dimension (i.e. scale), plane or realm. That is why science have what is called the Standard Model, so they may know how the universe function from the context of a set of consistency functioning rules that define and determine their interaction as well as their construct (i.e. the form and shape).

Understanding the consistency manner in which our perceivable reality functions is very crucial to knowing how to tell errors and lies from fact and truth, and to be able to comprehend what is the totally and entirety of what is communicated from what is vocalized, announced, pronounced, asserted, declared, proclaimed and decreed, especially when dealing with doublespeak and brazen deliberated stupidity arrogance.


Appendum

From the beginning of the social order of humankind (some six thousand or tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of years ago, depending on which version of history you chose to believe) until just over a hundred years ago, we knew from, next to nothing — until the time spanning the Renaissance (when we first discovered and learned about bacteria), through the industrial revolution (which introduced the concept of commercial mass production moving the production of goods away from home and cottage industries) — to just very, very little, about our existential reality of the cosmos and our planet earth including ourselves what are our composition that make us into biological animal lifeforms (as opposed to non lifeforms of rock, sand, dust, chemical molecules and elements) of planet earth.

But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.
Daniel 12:4

Beginning from around the 1900 C.E. our knowledge of ourselves but even more so, that of our realm of existence, our universe and all that is in, have increased to such an extent that today, with all these knowledge gained in all things that we (in totality as a social order) understood (from the context of what they are composed of and how they are able to hold together as well as much of their functional interactive actions in this our realm of existent or reality), all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of knowledge and enlightenment would (or should anyway) have been able to from all these knowledge gained and understood, pieced together what actually is and are the most fundamental basis to our reality that makes it what it is, all that is in it and why it is what it is.

Just some four to five hundred years, humankind knew nothing about infectious and microscopic parasitic organism which causes illness and diseases. They then (i.e. as a social order there those who) knew that we are composed of organs and systems (i.e. heads and their parts such as eyes, nose, tongue, teeth, brain, etc., and body and their parts such limbs, hearts, livers, intestines, blood, etc., but none knew exactly why we have them or that all these are composed of microscopic cells which are in turn composed of organic molecules which are composed of atoms which are further in turn composed of even tinier things. Truth is, to this day there are still quite a fair portion of the total world population who still don't have any ideas on any of these things.

When microbes (i.e. bacteria and plant cells, but not viruses and other disease causing pathogens, it was not until just almost two hundred years ago in the early 1800 C.E. that cell theory was first formulated) were first discovered, only a very few members of humankind living in those times knew anything about it. But today, at least a full third of the world population have easy access (i.e. connectivity to the worldwide internet) to the knowledge (enough to be able to have a basic understanding) on the Theory of Evolution, Cellular biology, molecular chemistry, particle and quantum physics, Big Bang from Absolute Nothing, etc..

Furthermore the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face toward the south; preach against the south and prophesy against the forest land, the South, and say to the forest of the South, ‘Hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I will kindle a fire in you, and it shall devour every green tree and every dry tree in you; the blazing flame shall not be quenched, and all faces from the south to the north shall be scorched by it. All flesh shall see that I, the Lord, have kindled it; it shall not be quenched.”’”
Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! They say of me, ‘Does he not speak parables?’”
Ezekiel 20:45 – 49

Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what shall be the end of these things?” And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 
Daniel 12:8 – 9

The above quoted two passages of the Scriptures (from the books of Ezekiel and Daniel) are just two of the many examples of the testimonies of the Scriptures which when they were recorded by the Scribes and Prophets of GOD, were neither understood by those who recorded them nor by anyone else during those times.

The first chapter of Genesis is one such among many examples of the records of the Scriptures of Truth which when it was first recorded as revealed by GOD in visions to HIS prophets who recorded it, but was not meant for it to be fully understood by those who witnessed and recorded them. From the time Moses first recorded the first five books of the Scriptures until just around a hundred years ago from today (i.e. 2017 C.E.) no one fully understood that Genesis chapter 1 (including all the rest of that first book) was firstly a vision and secondly it was recording the renewing of a planet earth destroyed of all its lifeforms by an Angelic rebellion.

During the Gospel years (beginning from the period just prior to the conceptions of John the Baptist and of JESUS, until the death of JESUS at the hands of the Romans and Jews), JESUS came born as a SON of man in HIS First Advent. One of HIS First Advent roles as the MEDIATOR and MESSENGER of the New Covenant (Malachi 3:1; Hebrew 9:5, 12:24), was to be killed as the LAMB of GOD who takes away the sins of the world, as the payment to redeem mankind (that all may receive a second chance to inherit the immortality that has been GOD's purpose for creating mankind on this planet) from the death penalty all have incurred because of their sins. None of the Jewish religious authorities, all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of those times (as also true with all the Prophets and Judges of GOD beginning from Abraham or even before that in Abel, Enoch and Noah) knew let alone understood that as the prophesied MESSIAH born in the lineage of David to be the King over Israel, HIS role included being the MEDIATOR MESSENGER of The (New) Covenant (Malachi 3:1; Hebrew 9:5, 12:24), This Covenant that was to be made through HIS BLOOD as the Passover LAMB of GOD sacrificed to redeem all mankind.

Neither did they (everyall of them beginning from Abraham) knew that as the MESSENGER of The Covenant JESUS had to die as the LAMB of GOD so that through HIS death and in HIS BLOOD (which sanctifies all in) the New Passover Covenant could be made (Exodus 12:7, 22, 22; Matthew 26:28; 1 Peter 1:19; Hebrews 9:7, 14, 18, 22, 13:20). Also, nor did anyall understood that there would be two advents of the MESSIAH (the first to pay the penalty for the sins of mankind) and that only in HIS Second Advent will HE come to restore the Kingdom to Israel (Acts 1:6 – 7) as well as to destroy the wicked and removing the disqualified deceitfilled Satan the Devil from his position of authority as ruler of this planet earth (Lot 1:6 – 12, 2:1 – 7; Luke 4:5 – 6; John 12:31; Revelation 20:1 – 2).

Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”
Acts 1:6

Even after HIS resurrection and after spending some forty days with varying numbers of HIS some five hundred disciples, when JESUS ascended to HIS FATHER in the Third Heaven, still none among HIS eleven Apostles and the rest of HIS remaining disciples, understood that HIS Second Advent to restore the Kingdom to Israel would still be many, many generations later, some two thousand years away.

And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
Acts 1:7

Just as the Prophet Daniel was told that it was not for him to know concerning the things and times of the Day of the LORD (Daniel 12:8 – 9) so also JESUS told HIS Apostles and disciples the very same thing. And the reason for this was because the times for these events that lead to and includes the restoration of the Kingdom to the Promise Land were of a time when they and all their peers would no longer be around anymore. The events were for a time when knowledge would increase to such a level that the social order of humankind would (or should anyway) be able to both perceive and understand all the things the Scriptures had recorded but have sealed for the times of the End of the Age when knowledge shall have increased.

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
Daniel 12:4

In the April 2017 C.E. discussion in the post, ‘Status Updates 2017 C.E.’, I discussed numerous doctrines and passages of Scriptures that have never before been understood (until it was revealed and discussed in that discussion) by anyone else (whether those among the believing or unbelieving disciples of JESUS, or those of all the evil anti GOD religions of the world who are the servant agents of the Evil One masquerading as the religion of the GOD of Abraham through plagiarizing selectively selected verses and passages of the Holy Christian Scriptures in parts and pieces then twisted these with lusted conceived and lust fueled spins and inventions added in to get all those who subscribe to these evil anti GOD religions to blaspheme GOD to the maximum).


The Culmination Of Knowledge

Today with the culmination of knowledge that empowered us to be able to understand most to near all of fundamentals to our reality, the reality that allows for our existence on our planet earth within the totality of our universe, and from this knowledge be able to empower our social order to break out from the boundaries of our limited flesh to go out of the which had limited us to the boundary of our ground based habitat on planet earth; into the deepest depth of the oceans; to see into the nanoscopic elements (whether waves or particles or whatever) that constructed our universe and all that is in it; harness the power of the elements (through the biological, chemical, physical laws of molecules, atoms, subatomic particles, waves andor particles of energy and all the forces that hold together, propel and tear asunder, all things that exist on our realm of existence) to empower us to function to a level that is billion trillion times more than our severely limited flesh had been able to so.

And with this knowledge empowerment we would (or should anyway) be able to fully and completely understand so as to know for a certainty of an ABSOLUTE DEFAULT to our reality, of an ultimate FIRST CAUSE of something or someone who has the absolute (i.e. the totality of intelligence and power from the context of all that exist that we know about) knowledge and power to bring our reality (in all that can be perceived as the permanent and as the temporary) into existence from what our ultra mega supremely ingeniously intelligent proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of science and factual knowledge perceived and proclaimed as a singularity of absolute nothing or near nothing, of an effect (of something happening) without any cause (i.e. of nothing without any cause whatsoever miraculously becoming everything). But strangely they all still totally don't have an iota of a clue.

Further, from all this knowledge all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of knowledge and so called enlightenment would (or should anyway) have both perceived and understood the fundamentals to our social order to know what will resolve and remove all the evil from it, and how to go about to begin implementing a social order system that will rid evil malice and ill will as well as all that which cause non conducive harm leading to violence and carnage from all of it.  But instead of doing that, they (all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of all knowledge and enlightenment disciplines; religions and systems of beliefs; technology and industry; wealth and entrepreneurship; social justice and philosophy; and of political governance who are the shakers, shifters, movers and shapers of the human social order have been engineering a global social order that sows and breeds all manners of evil in it). And strangely they all totally still don't have an iota of a clue.
