Hi Marco! Quoting: Anonymous Coward 761993
So as I understand it, to change reality I would just have to change my perspective?
Would it be gradual, like I would have to initiate change in order to shift my perspective. Or would it be a snap and happen instantly like it was always that way?
Ooh and can you explain relationships more?
To change your reality you would make changes to the representations in it.
Your perspective (or, "consciousness" if you will) comes about from the all the relationships combined from your particular vantage point, you could say.
Yes, it would be gradual. What we are experiencing with time is not an absolute chronological progression but a kind of psychological (or cognitive) progression.
We experience that which is most relative to us. Sometimes it's called past sometimes it's called future. When something is distant from our immediate relationships we call it "way over there" or "past".
Perspective is automatic and a result of the relationships of the representations.
Think of a "relationship" (as the term is here used) in the following example:
You have two opposing magnets. Each magnet is a representation.
The repulsive force betwee the two magnets is PERSPECTIVE. Otherwise known as consciousness. The consciousness comes about because of the relationship between the two representations.
Now imagine that one magnet is you and the other magnet is an apple pie.
The more you interact with this other representation the more "you+apple pie" consciousness you are creating. The result will be another consciousness (maybe you adding more fat to your body). The result is the 'square' of the you and apple pie representations.
