● To perceive reality as it is, one has to be a passive, holistic super receptor and decoder of information from subatomic to physical level, to be OMNIPRESENT - OMNISTIENT. That, one is not! ' - fmoesf

We are at the center of our reality, structuring it with our minds; our minds are not passive receptors of the external world.] '
