The Unseen Therapist

NewThink: #4 through #7

Basic Science: Our Senses Deceive us. The World is NOT how it Appears!

 

We rely on our senses:

SensesOur senses inform our bodies as to what the world is about. Without them, we would be clueless. We would see and hear nothing. We would not taste — or smell — or feel — anything. No hunger would tell us to eat and no thirst would tell us to drink. We wouldn’t know if we were freezing in the snow at the North Pole or sitting in the middle of an erupting volcano. Without our senses, we wouldn’t even know we had a body.

So, to us, our senses are EVERYTHING.

And we rely on them completely. We consult our senses every moment of our existence and interpret what they report. Then we dutifully act as though these reports were accurate. This includes everything from simple conversations — to avoiding danger — to spending money — to making decisions—to every facet of our lives. In essence, we are prisoners within our senses and dutifully obey their every input. It is what we know — at least that’s what we think.

Our senses deceive us:

Unfortunately, our senses deceive us — badly. They are showing us a very limited world. The compelling evidence for this reaches as far back as the beginning science that we learned in school around age 16.

For starters, we learned that our eyes and other senses perceive only a tiny fraction of our physical existence. If, for example, the entire electromagnetic spectrum — which includes things like radio waves, microwaves, infrared, ultraviolet, x-rays, gamma rays and more — stretched for 3,000 miles from Los Angeles to New York, our eyes would only detect an amount equal to the length of one of our arms. That amount is called the visible spectrum but should be called…

The Ridiculously
Tiny Amount
That We Think Is Reality!

All the rest of it (99.99999%) is lost from our everyday awareness. I mean lost. It is all going on — right now — but our senses do not detect it.

Also, our ears hear only a tiny portion of the entire sound spectrum. This means the vast majority of all the possible sounds out there are unavailable to our ears.

And, in the same way, our feelings, tastes and smells are also severely limited. Stated differently, we don’t have a clue about all that is really going on.

Yet we are convinced that our minuscule senses are giving us reality. We even have phrases that echo our firm beliefs in these illusions. We say things like…

  • "Seeing is believing”
  • "I saw it with my own eyes” and
  • “I heard it with my own ears.”

Our lives and our belief systems about politics, science, relationships, health, etc. are almost entirely based on the 0.00001% that our senses perceive. The rest is ignored. Our senses shut almost everything out leaving us with the false impression that the infinitesimal bits we perceive are all there is.

We are unaware of seven dimensions:

Additionally, our scientists have identified eleven dimensions to our existence and yet our senses only allow us to be aware of four of them (length, width, depth and time). The wonderments of the other seven are hidden from us, buried beneath our awareness.

Can you, for example, tell me what is going on in dimension #8? Is your unawareness of it causing you to age? Does it contain the answer to world poverty? Is it where Elvis lives (smile)?

What about dimension #10? — or #7? What jewels of our existence do they contain?

These are deep questions that beg for our attention. However, they get pushed aside because they involve ideas outside our awareness. We are too busy trying to work our way through our world, albeit imaginary, to ponder such profound proposals.

Our man-made healing methods are severely limited:

Further, our man-made healing methods on this side of the bridge are all based on this minuscule slice of perception and do little or nothing to draw therapeutic power from outside these limitations. Yet, as we have already seen, this unexplored power of The Unseen Therapist is capable of extraordinary results.

We turn now to the essential contribution of Quantum Physics.
