Thought is the father of the World!
Why does the mind make me feel that this illusory world is real?
That’s because Perception is inside out, not outside in. The senses do not gather information correctly because reality is colorless, shapeless, odorless, tasteless, touch-less, soundless electromagnetic radiation. The senses do not have the capacity to translate electromagnetic radiation. Therefore our mind+senses complex constructs reality in its own way. We project tastes, smells, colors, shapes, sounds, sensations that do not really exist.
That projection by the senses+mind is what the scientists called a common interface (like that of a desktop). It is a shared hallucination between all of us. See the World Science video for more details – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1jn86eUX0E
This interface lacks a lot of information. The Ego craves logical continuity & permanence. Because of this craving, it assumes and projects its assumptions to fill up the gaps.
This is very experiential. Many times you do realize that something does not make sense, you put 2&2 together, you create a story that equals 4. You convince yourself and others about this story. If you look closely enough at reality, it is possible to recognize the illusory nature of experience.
This is possible only through silent self-exploration. Use critical reasoning for every perception of sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell. You will recognize that you perceive only what you create in your own thoughts. Thought is the father of the World. The world does not exist anywhere except in thought.
