Thought Blends Into Reality

Have you ever noticed that in watching the television it appears as though we’re watching a show in the tv but actually there’s only ever dots of light moving around a screen? It’s worth stopping for a moment to consider this, there’s some imagery that moves on screen and there’s some corresponding sound, but the show we’re watching isn’t really taking place in the tv. The light and sound coming from the tv is detected by our sense organs and processed by the body where it’s interpreted through the use of thought. The form of the show we feel we’re watching substantially takes place in thought. A major character unexpectedly gets shot dead and you feel the event, nobody gets shot in the tv, some images move around that’s all, the shooting takes place where the internal substance of thought blends into the external substance of the tv. The show not only forms outside of us but it forms inside of us too. Thought is active in the forming of the television show, and elsewhere it actively interprets and reproduces other sensations relevant to our life. This thought substance blends into substances outside of it to form the day to day reality we’re living. Just as thought forms the sensation of the tv show, thought also forms the sensation of the house, the high street, the places where we hang out with our friends, it forms this world we feel to be independent of us, a world that is less outside of there and more inside of here.
