We are human beings, not just human bodies.

What's the difference?

 

anatomy-254129_640.jpg

This is a human body.

 

 

It's made of organs.

 

Heart, lungs, brain, liver... you get the idea.

Organs are made of cells...

and cells are made of atoms.

 

Makes sense so far, right?

But wait... we're missing something. A lot of things, actually.

Where's the rest of being human?

Where are happiness, frustration, joy, anger, love, sadness, and ecstasy? These are not physical things.

Our understanding of human anatomy describes only the human body, which is a fraction of the human being.

 

 

We are taught that we are a physical body, when in fact the physical body is only a part of what we are.

Back to our story... Atoms are made of particles. And particles are made of ???

(Just a heads up. When things get this small, they behave strangely.)

Waves! That's right. A solid particle is made up of not-so-solid waves of probability. How is that possible?

This is where the illusion of "solidness" and "physical stuff" can be seen through.

 

 

If it's hard to believe that something solid is made of something that isn't solid, don't worry. You're not alone. Physicists and philosophers wonder about the same thing.

The takeaway is that a particle has a physical state and a potential state.

Most scientists believe that this potential state only exists at tiny, sub-microscopic scales.

That's because they haven't studied the mind.

You can't understand matter if you don't understand the mind.

When we don't recognize the mind, we see it as matter.

When we don't recognize potential, we see it as things.

Mind and matter are inseparable. Matter is a wave in the ocean of mind. Matter appears in mind, like a dream.

(That's not in the textbooks.)

Pure potential exists as a real experience at all levels - micro and macro. Matter is condensed potential. This is knowledge we are all born with until it is taught out of us. 



Remembering is a great adventure.

Our schools teach our children only half the picture. Those children become scientists and leaders in society who only see half the picture - the matter half. When we only see half of the world, we only see half of ourselves. This leads to fragmentation of the psyche and depletion of creativity and joy. We feel something is missing, but can't recognize what it is.

The Story of Matter is the most popular fable worldwide. It's time we recognize it.

Think this over. Doubt what I say. If you believe me (or don't believe me), you'll never investigate enough to know. Instead, try "Let me find out."
