about reality .. whatever is out there for us (humans) is based on vision, touch, smell, hear and taste. Are we SURE, it's like that?

the world we deal with is based on our mind's interpretation of the 5 senses. We see things, yet we know we can only see a small part of the total spectrum, we hear, yet our audible frequeny range is short as compared to the full one, we taste, yet our tongue is the only sensor, we smell, yet we only have one nose and we touch, although we have a lot of sensors at the finger tips, we use other body parts to have the 'feel' of things ..
have we ever thought if that is it? i mean what we perceive the world to be, is it actually like that? don't these 5 senses make us believe the world is like what we have now? is the colour red actually red?

  • Jul 13 2012: The confines of the 3-dimensional universe that we live in is just the limitations of what our body is limited to, but not our mind. The universe we live in is made to perfectly have the forces of the universe to create the world we live in, the moon, the sun, the stars, etc. anything and everything in the universe. The power of our mind is staggering, but the problem is that the brain is limited to only the confines of what our 3-dimensional body can experience with it's 5 senses. It can take that information, process it, and then make connections, but the only source of energy, of information is from the 3-dimensional universe. If the mind was free of the confines of 3-dimensional bodies, then the mind would be much more powerful.
