    As Above So Below (How the Stars Became Our Hearts) 2nd Edition

    How to Cook Cliché     What is the nature of reality?   As Morpheus from The Matrix describes, if real is what we experience with our senses, then it’s simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain. As Plato describes in Allegory of the Cave, you can only postulate at what the universe really is by deductive logic based on the very limited sensory data interpreted by the brain.    This isn’t a new thought.   What is new is now we have scientific evidence that the universe may be nothing more than a simulation.   We’ve been indoctrinated by surface physics.
