Is it Possible to Have An Objective Picture of Reality?

Is it Possible to Have an Objective Picture of Reality

Q. We see the changing seasons, day and night, and the changes in life in nature. Is this an objective understanding of time or a totally subjective feeling?

A. There is no objective understanding of any kind. If I perceive something as a spectator, it cannot be objective in any way. Even if someone tells me what he sees, but I am the one who hears what he says, I perceive and feel it in my own way.

There cannot be any form of objectivity. If a person perceives only his own feelings and knows nothing of what is going on other than that, there cannot be any form of objectivity.

This is especially true when it comes to the perception of time, place, and motion, which exist inside a person. A spectator with different senses would feel a totally different world. We know that our senses perceive only a small part of reality.

However, we perceive something that cannot be perceived despite our subjective, individual reality. There is actually a certain range that we don’t perceive even in our subjective perception, but we understand that we cannot perceive it.

We have no idea what else can exist except for that. It is because we cannot rise above our mind and know something that we have never felt. We can feel it only if we change our senses.

But even if we have new senses, who can guarantee that we will perceive an objective picture? After all, it is also depicted only in our feelings.

An objective perception of reality can only be attained when we exit our senses. We don’t need to change them, but simply to rise above them to something that is absolute. In order to do that, we need a special science and this opportunity comes only from the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Dr. Michael Laitman, from KabTV’s “A New Life” 4/17/14

Maybe you have a question about the meaning of life, about Kabbalah, or how you can be helped in a certain situation you’re facing, or how to understand all kinds of events occurring in our world from their root, or any variety of concepts, such as whether we have free choice, how we perceive reality, why we feel pain and pleasure, and countless others…

Tuesday, 1 December 2015, we’ll be holding a free public preliminary live Q&A session, titled “What Is the Meaning of Life, the Universe and Everything!?” with you to celebrate the upcoming course.

We invite you to post just one question that’s itching away at you, and get it answered at the live event.

Kabbalah encourages the asking of questions to progress, so here’s an opportunity to ask your first question and get it answered live!…
