Special issue: What is reality? - New Scientist

Special issue: What is reality? - New Scientist | cognition | Scoop.it
The more we learn about reality, the less we understand it. Our special collection of articles explores how we define reality, what it could be and whether it exists
FastTFriend's insight:

 But what is reality? The more we probe it, the harder it becomes to comprehend. In the eight articles on this page we take a tour of our fundamental understanding of the world around us, starting with an attempt to define reality and ending with the idea that whatever reality is, it isn’t what it seems.

FastTFriend's insight:

Many scientists like to think that science already understands the ways of the natural world. The fundamental questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled in. The impressive achievements of science seemed to support this confident attitude. But recent research has revealed unexpected problems at the heart of physics, cosmology, biology, medicine and psychology.

FastTFriend's insight:

Preamble:This is an approximate decryption. The exact meaning of the encrypted story, the precise words used to compose it in encrypted form, and the emotional resonance of decrypting the story are subject to change. Without decrypting the story yourself, your personal reaction to it will always be muted and inexact. A strange impulse will come over you. A kind of curiosity. This impulse will direct you to decrypt the story even after you believe you have interpreted its meaning from the pages that follow this note. At night, with a flashlight, your lover asleep next to you, you will find yourself turning pages, scribbling words, intuiting numerals. In the morning, spent, you will remember nothing but a faint tingle in the temples, where resides information you cannot quite retrieve.
