Why as a Earth Organism, on Earth can we only see select dimensions?

posted by doodo! on - last edited - Viewed by 121 users

We evolved from the Earth, we come from it, it's a natural process of the Earth, no? Now, can some one please help me? I want to know if it's evolution, or what it is that we only evolved in certain dimensions of the Earth and can not perceive others...Why have we evolved in these dimensions and interact with these dimensions? Or have we influenced and interacted with other dimensions we're not even aware of ?


I want to know if as a organism if we have physical limitations...or why and how we've evolved as we have as multi dimensional but select dimensional. What's the reason why?

  • I never thought of it that way before. Though if our energy is saved some how I don't see any reason why when it's so small and whatever it may be that it could "radiate" to other dimensions.

  • Far be it from me to derail this thread, but there's too many "meta" threads about and I thought you'd like to mull this one over doodo.

    What if everyone percieved everything different from each other. For example on a simple level, if the way I saw the colour red was actually the way you saw the colour black, but we never knew because we were always taught that this particular colour had a name and its name is red.

    Oh sorry, did I just blow your mind?

    I've actually entertained that thought on numerous occasions... it nags at me, since there's no possible way to prove or disprove that theory. Every time a color closely borders another (like certain shades of green looking very close to yellow) and I end up debating what color it is with somebody, I end up having a mini existential crisis. :p

  • Personally my thought on anything on a metaphysical level is that since there's no real way to prove anything about it, and since my life is unchanged by such, I don't really see a reason to try to ponder such matters outside of creative stories because there isn't any point.

    It's like the quandary of whether or not you're the only person who exists and everything else is just in your head. Sure, that might be the case, but why should you really care? It's not like you can really do anything other than to just keep moving forward.

    Does that make any sense?

    I dont need a second person, I see colors differently in my R eye than my L eye. Now which color is correct?

    Trick question. Only your inner eye can truly see. Or something.

    ...

    Either that or the left one. Yeah, left one.

    Entertaining, but pretty unlikely at best. We all see the same light, we're all interpreting the same wavelengths. We have the same general photoreceptors, and our brains have roughly the same structure for interpreting this information. Excluding faults like color blindness, we all interpret the same raw data in the same way, with extremely minor variation from person to person.

    I think you can get some ideas from this Wikipedia article

    Article about "Objectivity Reality"

    A pretty interesting Question and Answer of subjective reality.

    Here's an interesting question some one asked about subjective reality
    "I think a lot of people are missing the point here. I already know that people will interpret things based on their experiences/beliefs, etc. That's not the point. I'm asking whether two different people can look at something and disagree on what they've seen because they've actually seen two slightly different versions of the same thing."

    I highly recommend this link to anyone, very good read. ^

  • Our brains are organic and physical, reality. There would I would refer to as a objectivity reality as their a physical form, their not loosely defined, yet our thoughts and minds are mostly subjective. How can either actually exist when they're from the same entity?

    Subjective/ objective reality?

    Bias and subjectivity comes from the mind, not the actual physical form , actuality of an object, no?

    If our brains send out these waves, these singles how can either exist when they are of the same entity!?

    :confused:

    Depth of perception, version of perception does not alter the original and current physical state of an object, unless there is the same object observed differently momentarily after another individual which now has a new defect or alterification of some sort visible to their eyes...which could be down to the nano second that the brain wouldn't even be aware of its observing.Its observing by the first participant one nano second sooner. Right?

    Of course. I don't actually believe that colors are subjective. I just like the idea, since it would explain so much about human personality.
