Our reality is really a mental world
, where the observer
(you) manifests his/her reality based on belief systems & thought patterns. (YouTube Dr Quantum Double Slit Experiment).
Without dogma (unquestional belief systems) and fear, one can open themselves up to more novel experiences.
I have. I also enjoy more synchronistic experiences.

Time on the Brain: How You Are Always Living In the Past, and Other Quirks of Perception
Neuroscientist Kathleen McDermott of Washington University, investigated the perception of past and future in people without brain injuries. McDermott did fMRI brain scans of 21 college students, asking them to recall a specific incident in their past and then envision themselves in a specific future scenario.
Findings & Explanations:
* Our minds construct the past, present, and future, and sometimes get it badly wrong
* The bottom line is that memory is essential to constructing scenarios for ourselves in the future.
* McDermott’s colleague Henry Roediger studies metacognition. Roediger said we store only bits and pieces of what happened—a smattering of impressions we weave together into feels like a seamless narrative. When we retrieve a memory, we also rewrite it, so that the time next we go to remember it, we don’t retrieve the original memory but the last one we recollected. So, each time we tell a story, we embellish it, while remaining genuinely convinced of the veracity of our memories.
Our consciousness lags 80 milliseconds behind actual events. “When you think an event occurs it has already happened,”
* Our brains also paper over gaps in information, such as eyeblinks. “Your consciousness goes through all the trouble to synchronize things,”
* Our memory becomes distorted because our brains react more strongly to novelty than to repetition. Conversely, when you’re doing something exciting, time seems to race by, but when you look back on it, it stretched out.
It would seem the Human Mind instrument is also a movie editor.
