American psychologist Donald Hoffman says reality might not be as it seems. He says a computer image isn’t that but 1’s and 0’s, similarly we don’t perceive the actual.
Donald is examining the source of the world, we have always wondered who or what created it. He claims consciousness creates it, to quote “Conscious realism makes a bold claim: consciousness, not spacetime and its objects, is fundamental reality and is properly described as a network of conscious agents.” Matter is for communication between conscious agents, it’s an epiphenomenon of consciousness. We make sense of the world through seeing and use matter as the stage. Human perception is primarily visual, he subscribes to Monist theory.
