Did you know that a lot of kids have ringtones on their mobile-phone that are that high, that an adult person can’t hear them? A lot of children are called or get SMS-messages in the classroom and the teacher doesn’t notice.
The silent ringtone proves that we don’t experience the world all in the same way. Not everybody’s senses are tuned in the same way. And if so – if one person hears more than another, isn’t it logical that some see more than others?, feel more? Or even sense more? Nevertheless a lot of people are very sceptical if someone says that he or she can see ghosts, hear voices or senses something is going to happen.
The reason for this is that we trust our own senses more than those of someone else. We acquire knowledge by seeing, smelling, tasting and feeling. Only when we can sense something we believe it is there. And so our senses are the borders of our thinking. At least for most of us.
Albert Einstein understood this long ago. He examened the world rather with his imagination than with his mind and common sense. “I did not discover the laws of the universe by being rational and using my senses” he said. He understood that the borders of our senses are not the borders of reality. Who wants to understand the world and the universe has to mistrust his senses. if one trusts on his senses, the world will always be full of mysteries. those who dare to let them go will begin to understand.
