We are human beings, not just human bodies.

What's the difference?



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.

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 ???

(Heads up - when things get this small, they behave strangely.)




That's right.
A solid particle comes from not-so-solid waves of probability. How is that possible?

("Solidness" and "physical" stuff are perceptions.)



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 (and argue) about the same thing.

The takeaway is that a particle has a solid 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 appears in mind, like objects in 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, and most have forgotten.

Remembering is an adventure.



Our schools teach our children only half the picture. Those children often become leaders in society who only recognize half the picture - the matter half. When we only recognize 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 to look closer.




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