What is reality?
Updated: May 16
The Schrödinguer's experiment based on the laws of quantum mechanics, proposed that our reality is a simulation, and that consciousness creates reality:
''Schrödinger's cat is a thought experiment that illustrates an apparent paradox of quantum superposition. In the thought experiment, a hypothetical cat may be considered simultaneously both alive and dead as a result of being linked to a random subatomic event that may or may not occur. The experiment is the following: a cat, a flask of poison, and a radioactive source are placed in a sealed box. If an internal monitor detects radioactivity, the flask is shattered, releasing the poison, which kills the cat. Schrödinger states that after a while, the cat is simultaneously alive and dead. Yet, when one looks in the box, one sees the cat either alive or dead, not both alive and dead. This poses the question of when exactly quantum superposition ends and reality resolves into one possibility or the other.''
The double slit experiment gave a very clear proof of that: ''The double-slit experiment is a demonstration that light and matter can display characteristics of both classically defined waves and particles; moreover, it displays the fundamentally probabilistic nature of quantum mechanical phenomena.''
It basically consists on a laser beam illuminating a plate pierced by two parallel slits, and the light passing through the slits is observed on a screen behind the plate. When the scientific observers would not be observing directly which one of the slits the ''particles'' would be passing through, the result of the screen detector will show an interference pattern. In the other case though, if they would observe the path taken by the particles, the results of the screen would show an arbitrary pattern with no clear order. This means that in the second place, the particles would be behaving as what they are, but in the first place, when the particles were not being observed, they would be behaving as waves instead of particles.
This means that when there is no observer, a group of particles is nothing but a wave of quantum probability of all the possible paths or places in space-time that the particle could potentially choose as a possibility, whilst if there is an observer, one possibility is materialized by consciousness itself.
This demonstrates thus, that indeed Consciousness creates reality, and therefore, the material world and its infinite possibilities exists as a projection of consciousness.
So technically, we are not in the space-time tissue of the universe, rather, we are the very fabric of the universe, and we create our own reality. But, how exactly we do that? It cannot be arbitrary, right? Even if we know now that technically we do create our reality, it's always hard to assimilate due to the fact that we are mostly not aware of how we do that, so, what is the next step to prove that point?
Stay tuned and prepare for an exciting path of self discovery and become the Creator of your reality.
