Perception is a mirror, not a fact. ~ Lesson 304, A Course in Miracles
This morning, I came across what some would consider a revolutionary article. It suggested reality is not objective. The article was based on a new quantum physics experiment, reported in MIT Technology Review.
Among other things, the article said, “…under the right conditions, two people can observe the same event, see two different things happen, and both be correct. (Emphasis is mine.)
What many might consider revolutionary is the idea both people can be correct.
How can that be?
That experiment may sound like a new discovery. But about 43 years ago, the author of A Course in Miracles said, “Perception is a mirror, not a fact. And what I look on is my state of mind, reflected outward.”
A Course in Miracles, it seems, was saying almost the same thing 43 years ago as science is saying now.
So what’s real and what’s unreal? How can we trust what we see? The answer is we cannot trust it—unless we see with different eyes, with different vision.
We’ll talk more about this later.
In this short discussion, Alan Watts asks the intriguing question we all have, “What Is Reality?”

What is reality to you?
Can two people observe the same “objective reality,” and yet have totally different experiences?
Are those experiences only “seemingly” different? Or are they “really” different?
