Our evolutionary process has created an aggressive territorial human animal with a highly evolved brain, capable of ‘fabricating’ its own intuitive-based reality; and incapable of counter-intuitive arguments.
Analogous to the maternal instinct, the human mind protects it’s own illusion of reality by viscerally deploying the Human Psyche’s insurmountably powerful defense mechanisms; first, and most formidable, denial and then, as necessary, rationalization, repression, regression, and dissociation, effectively blocking Man’s mind from the reception of any and all electromagnetic radiation external input of alternate counter-intuitive realities, concepts, and change.
The inability of the human mind to process and/or accept the physicality of an external reality, fully endorse by modern physics, is one of modern science’s greatest conundrums. One I call, The Anthropic Principle’s Paradox: fatal denial.
Man’s inability to properly process external stimuli explains why most of last centuries great scientific discoveries,, namely, the counter intuitive quantum mechanics, special relativity, and general relativity, with their immense prognostic implications, took years to be recognized, were minimally applauded, insufficiently funded, and then, delegated to the obscure realm of ‘Modern Theoretical Physics’; the equivalence of ‘It’s only a Theory’ apathy.
It further explains the inexplicable, mankind’s blatant disregard for his environment, his gluttonous misuse of natural resources, his failure to properly prioritize ‘climate control’, and finally, his apathy toward his own pending future, an eminent and unelectable extinction. A fate brought on, not by a conscious decision; but the lack thereof; that is paradox in itself.
It explains the budget cuts affecting our nation’s science programs, the alarming decline in math and science scores, our exit from the active space program, the shutdown of Fermi lab, the cancelation of the Web telescope and far too numerous other critical scientific projects..
The Human mind, with its highly developed brain, capable of abstract reasoning, language, introspection, self-awareness and problem solving, was thought to be the most complex fete of Evolution.
However, recent research in neuroscience has irrefutably proven that the mind actually augments a crude two-dimensional, blurred afferent image, lacking resolution, into the sharp, clear, crisp ‘synthetic’ illusion of the external reality mankind takes for granted.. Like an artist, it does this by cleverly adding form, dimensionality, animation, colorization, and shadowing; virtually fabricating it’s ‘version’ of an external reality.
This synthesized illusion of reality (a hologram in effect) has been well documented in the scientific community. The universality, that is the ‘conserved parity’ from one human to another of this illusion of reality is far less understood; but, ironically, plays well into the current research on Quantum coherence.
I’m well aware of how bizarre this sounds, an absurd ’conspiracy theory’ involving Nature; I actually hope I’m delusional. Fortunately, for all of us, I quit my ‘day job’ ten years ago, and took up theoretical physics as an avocation. My credibility is thus, in question; my sincerity, certainly, is not. My naivety in matters of the scientific community is apparent, so, if there is some ‘master plan’ to filter and disseminate this information to the public, please let me know.
