Let me ask the question: Do we create our own reality ? (Like described in the movie: What the bleep do we know ? ) It would be very interesting, what your experience about it is !
Thank you vey much !
Answer from Master Keisen
Of course the outside world exists the way it is, buddhism does not talk about it. Buddhism talks about the human beings and so about our own reality. In sciences, in the older times, people believed that they will discover the true mechanisms of our universe, as if it were separated from ourselves. From the emergence of quantum physics we know now that it is not so simple and that the way we are performing the experiments acts on the results that we will get. We can then deduce that these realities are not separated: the plain, unobservable, reality of our world and the reality that we can attain through our experiments or through our mind.
Separate them conducts to a contradiction.
So we can change our reality, and somehow it is the only one that we can know. At this point the only thing which remains is just a question of wording: what do we call reality.
