Hard and Soft Reality

There is an apparent division in kinds of reality. One kind looks as though it stays the same no matter what you think, and the other shifts according to your thinking processes. The persistent sort is usually identified as material, objective reality. It is that reality about which others have no trouble agreeing. Gravity seems to be one aspect. Dimension, mass, etc., are others.

What defines the difference? Some aspects of "hard" reality have been shifted by consciousness. Possibly the shifts brought about in "hard" reality by consciousness are far larger and more frequent than you might think. The answer lies in contacting not "thoughts thunk" (which are after all small scale byproducts of consciousness) but the raw flux itself of consciousness without selfdivision. Once we learn to truly navigate that sea, thinking thoughts becomes a hobby like table tennis.

Then doors open.
