The paradox of the real

Reality is a confluence of the is, the was and the will be. We live in a universe that is going somewhere in the process of becoming more than it was.

(Starting points)

~

Everything is subject to change: we change, nature diversifies, the universe evolves, and in the process something ‘impossible’ happens – things become more than they were – and the same thing happens to the nature of nature.

(Strong personality)

~

The facts we illuminate and explain in nature don’t reason or find things out about themselves.

(Where is reason?)

~

In the light of the universe becoming of its prior absence, ‘absence’ denotes the fact of a reality to redefine the bounds of ‘reality’.

~

Every thing amounts to less than everything in a universe that begins as ‘nothing’.

~

Change is the paradox of things becoming what whey were not.

~

Reality exceeds explanation – things are simultaneously one thing and another.

(Where is reason?)

~

To see that the reason we find in nature is the reason we give to nature is to know of a nature beyond.

~

The fact of sentient existence opened up a new reality in the universe that could be predicted only retrospectively.

~

In a paradoxical world, belief is the possibility inviting us to entertain impossibilities that just might be true.

(Believing in belief).

~

Our realisations are the founders of realities yet to be.

~

The contradictions of paradox serve to show us that there is more to truth and reality than the dictates of reason and experience.

~

The ‘real’ and ‘unreal’ share an uncertain boundary between what is and what can be.

~

There is now a mindfulness in the midst of the universe’s physicality whereby nature now incorporates features of rational activity quite unlike the properties of nature as it was.

(Tidings of reason).

~

The mind in nature sees something nature cannot – itself.

(Where is reason?)

~

Everything has a cause, including causality.  Causality is a statement of reason that the mind projects upon the world.

(Where is reason?)

~

The question about what is truth converts into an issue over what may stand as proof – as if proof is the unequivocal imparter of knowledge that remains independent of what we believe.

(Believing in belief).

~

In reality, proof is relative to the mind that considers something proved according to the principles it brings to the equation.

(Where is reason?)

~

The universe expands into a new reality by the change to awareness and nature acquires a new nature quite unlike itself.

~

No fact does our thinking for us, not even in the brain.

(Where is reason?)

~

Paradoxes serve to remind us of the limits of the ‘real’ as paradigms of reality.

~

The something else by which we explain our existence ‘as’ shows that we are something else to the ‘as’ as it is.
