"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one"
Reality and how we all experience it is a great place to start the discussion on strange phenomenon. The fact that our brain is playing tricks on us all day long in order for this world to make sense is pretty trippy.
Have you ever watched the TV show Brain Games?
Cutie and major advocate for psychedelics Jason Silva is the host and he goes around doing experiments that challenge the brain. After watching an episode on Netflix I remember feeling even more lost. On one hand I was amazed that the brain can compute so fast; but yet why couldn't I the force behind the brain discern some of these things naturally.
