Reality is made up of our mind.

© Sérgio Spritzer, agosto de 2022

Human intelligence creates systems within systems. Physical, biological, and psychological reality are more complex to understand and deal with than at any other time in human history.

Human intelligence created maps of physical and biological reality and is rapidly determining mental intelligence maps for different life situations.

The dimensions of reality are creations of the human mind amplified by science and technology. The more we know, the more complex it becomes to know reality (or realities) and compose a way that makes sense.

For example, in one movie, a boy calmly paddling across a quiet lake appears. Suddenly, it opens a zoom quickly approaching the person's arm and a mosquito appears in it biting the arm. The zoom focuses on the blood molecules inside the insect's beak and the observer perceives red blood cells, and the zoom deepens the reality and the hemoglobin molecules are perceived. An iron molecule, the atom, electrons, nucleus, with subatomic particles and inside them…nothing! Waves of energy are vaguely perceptible to our reality. A nebula is hardly imaginable, even with the most advanced forms of technology.

The zoom goes backward quickly, reversing all forms of perception of reality, and continues backward until the perception is expanded more and more. As the boy grows smaller and smaller, on the shores of the lake, the region and the country become evident. The zoom zooms in, more and more, the edge of the earth, the lake disappears from the observer's field, and the earth appears to revolve around the sun. Now he sees the solar system, the distant earth, he sees the galaxy, the nebulae, and finally nothing…. The camera goes back, the zoom progressively until it reaches the level of the boy paddling in the lake, and the scene follows. The spectator realizes how human knowledge has irreversibly expanded the concept of physical reality and, consequently, the mental reality that we deal with daily. We need to think about our relationships with the physical, biological and social world in a much more dimensional way than ever before in human history.

There is no possibility of thinking unless aiming at a real or imaginary physical act. It would be like the guy in front of a store being approached by the salesperson when looking at the window and replying: "I was just looking" and the salesperson replies: "if I was looking then you want to buy it…can I help you buy it?" There is no such thing as mindless thinking, whether conscious or not. Even in the dream, ideas are related to being better understood. If the person dreams recklessly, he wakes up to find out about himself and goes back to sleep in a new, more coherent way.

It is like a team of ideas that, if it does not achieve internal coherence, paralyzes the game, and talks to the coach to examine how to resume the team's course of thought on the field. Probably the technician will hear something like: "I thought he thought…" and the other will say the same: "and I thought he thought". The fact is, they don't think as a team at that point, and they need to get back to that composite way of thinking. This is the typical problem with thinking in a composite way.

The challenge of the contemporary world is to examine the intelligence involved in the person's relationship with himself, with others, with technologies, and with the so-called natural world. When a person thinks, consciously and unconsciously, representations of something appear in the form of sensations, emotions, feelings, images, and verbal and non-verbal sounds.

Perceiving together is like looking at a landscape, an object, or the appearance of a person or group and imagining that we are seeing the same thing. Still, that's it. It is an imaginary construction of people because each one perceives reality in their way. It is possible that one of them had an unpleasant experience with such a landscape, for example, a bad moment, very good and intense, and has an aversion or longing to see what he sees. As a member of a group, a perception may be representative of the group's unity.
