Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

Don’t Be So Sure


Statement 1: We are able to navigate new, unknown spaces in the physical world because we have built mental “maps” based on our senses, e.g., sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, of every space we’ve ever been in. If we can’t experience the world within these parameters, as far as our brains are concerned, it doesn’t exist.

Statement 2: Surely, things must exist that are beyond our senses. Just because we can’t sense them doesn’t mean they aren’t there (dogs, for example, can hear and smell things beyond our limited sensory inputs. These things don’t cease to exist simply because we lack the ability).

Statement 3: Question, actually: How many worlds and dimensions are we swimming in, blissfully unaware they even exist?
