A Matter of Perspective
So, when she said she had been timing the blinking of her eyes to match the flashing lights on the plane flying overhead, so to make the plane disappear, he had to admit that THEN he’d heard it all. Fast forward – no ticket that night. Creativity pays off. Or maybe there was no plane.
I wonder how many times each day we “disappear” things, choosing to avoid the perception of certain sights, sounds, feelings. If we don’t notice them, does the source of those perceptions go away? Or are the perceptions all us? What if we conveniently avoid that irritating friend or family member, deliberately arriving after she has left? Does she cease to exist? Or are we still resonating to our pattern of behavior with that person, in essence, not changing a thing?
Maybe it’s like covering up the ink spot on the wood floor with a throw rug. Is it really there? How can you be sure without looking under the rug? The probability is it’s there. I mean, if we saw it once, it’s still there, right?
This is where intention is useful. Do you want the spot to be there or to not be there?
The wave-particle duality of quantum physics says we can’t know until we look. By not looking, we can allow the possibility that the spot is not there. But by looking, we, as the observer, collapse the wave of uncertainty into the particle view that we call the “reality” of the ink spot.
In any case, it’s a choice. What do you wish to see when you pick up that rug?
