  1. It’s hard to imagine, but the limits of our imagination should not also be the limits of our belief. If I cannot imagine a dark light shining or every possibility of everything playing out while I can only perceive one at a time, that certainly does not stop either of those things from being real. Also, our ideas of how we move about in this reality are really only those – ideas. But, as we’ve heard, perception is reality – and that’s the case whether it’s a false perception or not. My difficulty with the concept of predetermination is that it seems (and maybe it only seems) that we have the ability to affect and manipulate reality, ultimately, maybe that’s just a convenience brought about by my biology. But, it’s certainly possibly that we’re only along for the ride and watching everything collide while we experience the joy and pain of our perception. It confuses me. The joy and pain of it confuses me, but maybe that’s the adaptation of the super-organism’s interelations – ADHD helps the conglomerate biological system (me) cope with the rush of interference (I get distracted from the immensity of reality by my emotions). This might be a lot to work out, but perhaps that’s all part of the magic trick of existence.

    “Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.”
    ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

    It’s just too much to work out (but that doesn’t mean it’s not there) and that’s because we may be temporally (and temporarily) live in an isolated biomass in which we are destined to “go with the flow”. It would seem then, that quantum physics is serving up The Three Fates.

    Of course, the opposite may also very well be the case, our imagination should not be limited to only what the ancient Greeks and modern physicists have to say about the limits of our imaginations – and the nature of the cosmos.
