Belief

What do you believe, is it true? I list a couple of mine. The photo is of an old fascination in belief, Sufism, the Whirling Dervishes. For a time I tried to whirl, quite a belief whirling to become still. Belief might be religious or opinion. I believe in many things, then there are facts. I also believe in something other. Belief is central to the human condition. Having been in coma for 3 months and the subsequent research I now believe consciousness is reality, not just an epiphenomenon of the brain. In the video section below theorists suggest rather than matter consciousness is the universe. Matter is the stage for interaction between conscious agents. Our individuality is altered consciousness of the collective, multiple personality disorder. They question the existence of matter without consciousness. Science too questions the independent existence of matter saying particles require perception to exist. In quantum mechanics entanglement theory, perception is required for particles to actualise a state. Something proven in physics by the double slit experiment.
