The Illusion

We live in an imaginary world. Not on...the earth is solid enough, but in. Civilization, as we know it, is imaginary.

I'm not mad. I've always known our society is so crazy as to be an an illusion, but I could never quite explain why.

These 3 videos (which will probably not stay up long as I'm certain she has no permission to upload them) explain it all perfectly.

These are from Week 6 from a course I'm doing, and if it whets your appetite you might want to join it yourself. But if you can spare the time to watch just these 3, it will make you think very deeply.

Alas, as usual, I'm preaching to the choir, but it may help you, when you try explaining to others, because most people won't understand, or if they feel themselves beginning to understand, they'll reject it. It's too discomforting.





  1. What makes you imagine the earth is solid? All matter - except neutron stars and black holes - is almost entirely empty space. It's the mutual repulsion of the electron clouds around atomic nuclei which gives the appearance of solidity.
