On Reality all True Explanations will have to Converge!
Standard, internally Consistent and Orthodox, yet still highly Controversial
Quantum Mechanics &
Buddhism agrees on at least 3 crucial
1: The concept of
"Static Reality Out There" is violated at the absolute level!
Some attributes of the object like location, speed etc. cannot truly be said
be existing BEFORE observation, or INDEPENDENT of observation! Rather there
is a POTENTIALITY of multiple possibilities for these attributes to occur,
which only one particular one manifests, when INTENTIONAL observation
this wave of potentiality into a new real actuality! This momentary EVENT
a Dhammā = Basic mental state of a fundamentally dual
When there is looking and observation phenomena happen! When not looking they
Conventional 'Reality' may
thus be known better only as a particular mode of
Not as an Absolute Fact!

Two things spatially separated -even by 1/2 a universe- is still causally

space and time may thus also be known better only as particular modes of
Not as Absolute Facts!
3: The elements of Consciousness
and its content Information are fundamentally REAL!
Consciousness cannot ever be set aside, since it not only is an obviously
requirement and inseparable part of any observation and phenomenon, but it is
irreducible fundamental element of any process of being (read becoming) alive, that
be explained by or cut up into other parts! Consciousness is on the mental
side, what space
is on the material side: Both can contain and display all, but they do
not themselves have
any other characteristic, than their primary essence: Naked awareness & empty
Consciousness and information are
the absolute facts, and the fundamental and irreducible
reals other things, whether mental or material, are made out of &
unambiguously based upon!
Some Comparable Concepts from Quantum Physics and early
Quantum Physics says:
Theravādin Buddhism says:
Things are in a state of
probabilities of which only one occurs exactly at
the moment of
measurement! Before observation things are undetermined,
potential & not yet real!
This 'Universe' starts and ends all within
this ~2 meter
frame of a body...! Only when consciousness is present,
can solidity, fluidity, heat & motion manifest themselves.
When consciousness is absent the 'world' therefore ends!
the very creation
of the object & is therefore inseparable from it!
No observation is without affecting the object...
The truth about reality is ONE, and neither
two nor three!
Subject and object is a unity, and not a diverse duality...
Observation is desire driven and thus kammically creative.
Things are non-locally
entangled! Things that are spatially widely separated, can still causally
affect each other and act correlated!
|The sage can be both here and there
He can become one, & he can become many of any form!
He can instantly know other's thoughts where ever he is.
Highly recommendable for this convergent view on our
collectively created reality is this documentary:
