Perception of reality depends on contrast and similarity

Question from the Internet:

“How do we perceive the disorder of our environment?”

Human precision is based on two very important principles:

1.Contrast, comparative research

2.Similarity of qualities between the observer and the observed

In relation to perceiving true reality, to sense, experience the world as it is, we lack both.

We are locked into a “singular” consciousness, perception - sensing, experiencing everything only according to our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and subjective nature/program.

And since this nature, program thrives on, works towards “disorder” - by nature we act in a destructive, self-destructive, “cancer-like" manner (excessive overconsumption, success, survival at each other's expense) - through our own “disorder” we see the world also in a disorderly fashion.

In order to come to feel, sense, understand the surrounding Natural reality as it truly is - perfect, orderly, purposeful - we need to become similar to Nature. We need to acquire Nature's perfect, altruistic and selflessly, unconditionally serving qualities above and against our own inherent qualities, inclinations.

Then we will obtain the necessary similarity with Natural reality through which we can perceive, research it objectively, truthfully. And we also obtain the necessary contrast compared to our original qualities which will serve as a crucially important background against which we can verify our new perception, the vision we gained.
