Is our intelligence a continuous stream of connected photons and our human body just a focus point?

In that scenario the mind is real and most everything else is an illusion in which case anything that can be imaged is possible. So why not imagine a world with less destruction and violence from mankind.

    A good way to get a better world seems to me to improve it in the best way you seem fit (while consulting other people when doing so &c &c).
