“The Real is ever-present, like the screen on which the cinematographic pictures move. While the picture appears on it, the screen remains invisible. Stop the picture, and the screen will become clear. All thoughts and events are merely pictures moving on the screen of Pure Consciousness, which alone is real.”
​-Ramana Maharshi

Feeling and thinking are ways we process information, but our emotional sensations are normally faster than a conscious thought. Your consciousness is optimized meta-algorithmic information-processing. Nothing is real for us until perceived.


One thing is for certain – you cannot explain consciousness in terms of classical physics or neuroscience alone. Quantum physics and consciousness are somehow linked by a certain mechanism. That mechanism is arguably a collapse of the wave function via the act of conscious observation. 

Quantum mechanics is a spectacularly successful theory of fundamental physics that allows us to make probabilistic predictions derived from its mathematical formalism, but the theory doesn’t tell us precisely how these probabilities should be interpreted in regards to phenomenology, i.e. our experiential reality. 

Quantum-to-digital information transition is essential to our cognitive processes.  That is our mind what makes the “processed information” irreducible, which, moment by moment, manifests in phenomenology of our subjective experience.

​To put it bluntly, our senses deceive us into thinking that we live in the material world. Our world is not based on objectively existing particles of matter but it is based on waves of potentiality, that is pure information. Our world is informational. Your consciousness is, rather, an optimized data stream, a sequence of conscious instants.
