We all live in our reality tunnels. Michael Pollan suggests
that if we were to enter the brain of another human being,
we would think we were experiencing a psychedelic trip.
Reality tunnels is a term that Timothy Leary coined, and
Robert Anton Wilson expanded. The IDEA is that we each
live in a selective view of perception determined by our
setting, genetics, imprints, conditioning, and learning.
Bernard Kastrup, in his book Brief Peeks Beyond,
proposes that: “IF we accept the obvious fact that nature presents to us the moment we are born: consciousness is the one fundamental aspect of reality; the canvas of existence.The universe is nothing but excitations of consciousness itself.”
Now if we could relax our tiny tunnel of perception and let it expand like a mother giving birth, maybe we could open up to a broader experience. If we view life as a canvas of consciousness, why would we not be able to see something we could not conceive till [IT] arrives in our mind?
Reality tunnel is a term coined by Timothy Leary
(1920-1996) and popularised by Robert Anton Wilson
(1932-2007), akin to the idea of representative realism.
The theory states that, with a subconscious set of mental
"filters" formed from their beliefs and experiences, every
individual interprets the same world differently,
hence "Truth is in the eye of the beholder".
Robert Anton Wilson defines a REALITY-LABYRINTH as a paradigm consisting of a meta-structure made up of many interlocking REALITY-TUNNELS which themselves consist of an epic reality established by a vivid metaphor and transmitted though symbolism across generations and that
“Each person’s reality tunnel is their artistic creation.”
