“Reality is merely an illusion , although a very persistent one.” “The distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion .”
“Time is basically an illusion created by the mind to aid in our sense of temporal presence in the vast ocean of space. “Time is but an illusion created by beings with limited perception.”
Quote by William Shakespeare: “ Life is nothing more than an illusion .
THE UNIVERSE ceases to exist when we are not looking at it proving that life is an illusion , according to one study. Life is an illusion , at least on a quantum level, in a theory which has recently been confirmed by a set of researchers.
Illusion , a misrepresentation of a “real” sensory stimulus—that is, an interpretation that contradicts objective “reality” as defined by general agreement. An illusion is distinguished from a hallucination, an experience that seems to originate without an external source of stimulation.
That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion . Einstein did not reject the existence of time . Instead, he rejected the distinction between past, present, and future.
Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in an apparently irreversible succession from the past, through the present, into the future.
According to theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli, time is an illusion : our naive perception of its flow doesn’t correspond to physical reality. He posits that reality is just a complex network of events onto which we project sequences of past, present and future.
In Dzogchen, perceived reality is considered to be illusion . The real sky is (knowing) that samsara and nirvana are merely an illusory display.
The further quantum physicists peer into the nature of reality , the more evidence they are finding that everything is energy at the most fundamental levels. Reality is merely an illusion , although a very persistent one. What else can we do in the face of what scientists have discovered about reality ? It’s unbelievable!
Illusions are, by definition, mismatches between physical reality and perception. Love , as with all emotions, has no external physical reality: it may be driven by neural events, but it is nonetheless a purely subjective experience. So, too, is the wounded heart we have drawn here.
The world is a dream . The Mundaka Upanishad tells us that both the waking state and dream state of our life are illusory. They are mere creations of our consciousness. The highest level of our consciousness is that of Turiya, when we cease to see the world of matter and feel only one consciousness everywhere.
