What is the nature of reality?
And will we ever understand the nature of reality? More precisely, is the human brain equipped to intercept reality?
We depend on our senses, and the human brain depends on the genetic code, neural connections, interactions and experiences to come up with its perception of reality.
Quantum mechanics has established that reality is counter-intuitive, uncertainty is built into the very fabric of reality and everything is interconnected, which means the thing that is being observed will change its nature when an observer is around, making it difficult to observe and understand reality.
The human brain, however, has an uncertainty threshold, and to conserve energy, the brain relies on trends and patterns and oversimplifies reality to the point that we are not open to anything that is counter-intuitive and strange and in contrast to our perceptions.
Perhaps then it all comes down to the ability of the human brain to handle uncertainty, weirdness and to be open to each moment to understand the nature of reality.
And perhaps even though we are wired and conditioned to rely on our senses, to shy away from uncertainty and weirdness and to not be open to each moment, perhaps, the Universe is asking us to not shy away from uncertainty and weirdness and to be open to each moment, so that our brain can uncover the nature of reality.
