Our subjective expectations distort the reality we observe

Question from the Internet:

“How do our expectations impact our interpretation?”

Absolutely!

This is why our research, perception, science is skewed, biased towards the observer, as we approach, observe everything with egocentric, subjective expectations.

As quantum physicist also noted, simply by observing something we change both the observed and the observer.

This is why our “sciences” are guesswork, they are theoretical, philosophical as we simple have no ability for truthful, objective research with our inherent faculties, mindset that are completely tuned, programmed towards ourselves.

We are basically groping in the dark and we created an illusiory coordinate system around us to somehow cope with being lost in ourselves.

Unfortunately now this imaginary coordinate system - based on our subjects axis of time, space and motion - falls apart as Nature’s evolution is pressing is to develop further, so we could finally research and attain the system we exist in, so we could fulfill our unique, Human evolutionary role in it.

In order to develop further and overcome the instinctive, default egocentric, subjects bias, we need to first develop a completely selfless, objective viewpoint.

This is possible through a very special, purposeful and practical educational method that can teach us how to view reality through the needs, desires, viewpoints of other people.
