Reality is so much more! – a poem

Reality is so much more


Electricity and chemicals

In circuits

To create minds.


Creating a world within

To witness a

Universe without.


All we have is

Electricity and chemicals

To paint pictures!


Reality is so much more.


Opher – 21.6.2019



I often think about our brains isolated in our skulls, connected to the universe through our senses and fabricating its pictures out of chemistry and electricity.

A magician with a magic cauldron.

A sorcerer with a potion.

An artist with an electric brush.

We feel real. The universe feels real. Yet we, or at least our brains, are really making it up. It is illusory.

We live in a mental construct – a product of evolution and biology.

Wonderful isn’t it?
