Noting B

Noting B is part of the FitMind Meditation Program. It is necessary to change how we understand and relate to thoughts through meditation.

Noting B: What is Reality?

For our purposes, let's say that "reality" is all of the information that exists in the universe.

This information presents itself in many types of energy - electromagnetic fields, ultraviolet waves, and other types of energy - of which humans have evolved to perceive through the five senses a small segment that would help us survive and pass our genes to the next generation.

With the use of scientific instruments, like an infrared thermometer, we can detect other subtle energies that we didn’t evolve to sense as part of our natural subjective reality. Imagine, if you can, perceiving the world as a snake, which can detect infrared radiation emitted up to a meter away via holes in its head. This is another slice of “reality” that humans don’t tap into.

The truth is that the real material world is a vast jungle of information of which your brain selectively picks out a small segment according to how your brain’s been shaped by evolution and conditioned by your experience. And furthermore, of the sliver of reality that humans have evolved to perceive, much of it never reaches our conscious experience.
