How Do You Know You Are Real? A Video To Make You Question Your Own Existence

Quantum physics tells us we can't bet on anything. So don't worry. Life is but a dream, and we are the creators of our own destiny

Reality: it’s not always easy to deal with. On a global scale, humanity is grappling with environmental devastation, never-ending oil wars with ever-changing enemies, mass surveillance, the destruction of civil liberties (and democracy), increased social inequality and less social mobility…I could go on. Sometimes, our collective reality seems so grim and hopeless it’s a wonder anyone has any energy to fight the system at all. But what if by focusing our energy on all the negatives, we are attracting- or even creating- this dark, dystopian future?

This video summarizes one of the most important discoveries in quantum physics (and arguably one of the most important in the history of humanity): that everything we think we are experiencing is actually little more than a dream. Reality is not fixed or static at all. In fact, only the act of observation creates matter. A table, for example, is not solid until you turn and look at it. Before that, it’s a wave- it is in all places (and nowhere) simultaneously. The Universe really is non-physical, as mystics have claimed for millenia. You might not even exist!

If this is all new to you, don’t take my word for it. This compilation of movie mash-ups and interview clips features top scientists Fred Alan Wolf, Nassim Haramein, Amit Goswami, Jim Al Khalili and Greg Braden to explain all this craziness. Additional scenes from The Matrix and What The Bleep Do We Know will leave you wondering why you bothered to worry about reality at all. Because science tells us that if we focus on love, that’s what we will experience.

“The mind is the matrix of all matter.” This is a great mantra to repeat every morning!
