    beyond our imagination

    The universe is not designed and it is not designed for us.

    And yet the universe is so extraordinary it is beyond even our imagination.

    Yes, as the universe is integrated into our minds. It all starts in one's perception. I may have many universes going on in my head each day, competing with this vague "reality" my eyes force me to see. It is light that derives illusion. You may never see the same thing in light, as light may have different flavors. And furthermore, it is darkness that is the universal truth, in which everyone would see the same tangible thing, nothing. Only then can your mind truly activate. This all might as well be a dream.

    You state this as fact, but it is in fact theory. Our knowledge of the universe is minuscule and we can be certain of nothing. The farthest man has made it is the moon and the farthest we've seen is but a fraction. That's like sailing 10 feet into the ocean and saying the world is flat, and if you keep going you will fall of the edge.

    As the Randroids would say, wait for a train to run over you and then see how "vague" "reality" is.

    haha.

    But. Isn't the universe in our imagination? How can it then be beyond it?

    Recall the thread on constructing images from your brain. What would be the point of constructing images from your brain if they didn't come from something real?
