A Primer on the Myth of Reality
The Mask: A Primer on the Myth of Reality invokes psychology, philosophy, physics, general semantics and great literature ranging from Moby Dick, Don Quixote, the treatises of Albert Einstein and other great scientists and philosophers, to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland to illustrate that “REALITY,” which we assume to be an ontological given, IS A MYTH. What we refer to as our “world” is, rather, a linguistically evolving, mathematically refined, abstract conceptual framework that we ourselves impose on the flow of human experience to make the sensory chaos comprehensible and, to a limited degree, manageable. The implications concerning Space and Time, Being, Relativity, Truth, Religion, God, Self, Myth, Reality, Determinism, etc. are analyzed in the context of this insight.
