Sure thing.
The video has the short version. Here's the long version from my web site.


"That there is no truth is difficult for most to accept. It doesn?t come naturally to discard beliefs, but I think that is the start of knowledge - while we have beliefs, we force knowledge to become true or false and so destroy its infinite nature."--Unknown.

Skeptical Idealism 2.0 (The Video)

Skeptical Idealism 2.0

The truth is, we can never know what The Truth is!

If we begin with No-Thingness, then No-Thingness is all we can ever have.
The Empty or Null Set is completely satisfied and beyond entropy or evolution.
It is an impossibility for No-thingness to evolve into Thingness.

We cannot get Something from Nothing!

Since this is the case, where does all this Thingness come from?

It doesn't.
There is no Thingness, there is only the Illusion of Thingness.

We start with Quantum Idealism; the idealist concepts of the Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics which maintains everything is an illusion and there is no-thing physical at all.

Which is different than the Realist/Materialist interpretation of quantum mechanics followed by Super String Theorist still looking for a fundamental vibration to explain the Universe.

The problem with Super String theory is they still need to answer the hard question of where did all those vibrations come from? What started Nothingness to vibrate?

The "New Age" interpretation of the Copenhagen Interpretation maintains the essence of all Reality is pure Consciousness.
Consciousness is the "Emptiness at the heart of all matter"!

If we then  follow that concept to it?s logical conclusion we end up with Skeptical Idealism.

Skeptical Idealism is pure Idealism with a good dose of Skepticism thrown in.

The quantum universe is just as much an illusion as everything else. It is just another choice of something to believe in; something we use to create the illusion that we can know anything at all.
Skeptical Idealism maintains no one can ever really know anything at all beyond their own internal manifestations. No one can ever know with any certainty what they themselves perceive has any independent existence, or any truth, beyond their own perceptions.

We believe what we perceive, but we only perceive what we believe!

All we can ever really know are the illusion we create in our own minds.
And since pure Consciousness is infinite and has no boundaries, our choice of illusions are infinite and have no boundaries.
For every mind there is a different illusion. Some are very very close, but no two are exactly the same.

There really are no answers at all, there are only choices.


Everyone of us exists in our own illusions of what we believe Reality is, but since Consciousness is infinite and unbound, so are the illusions.

For every mind there is a different illusion of Reality.

And since all is illusion, every illusion is just as true and just as good as any other illusion.
It may not be to you, but it is to someone.

"In the province of the mind, what the mind believes to be true,
either is true or becomes true within certain limits to be found
experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to
be transcended. In the mind there are no limits." - John Lilly


Once we can truly comprehend that The Singularity of Consciousness is not
only Infinite but also Unbound then there are no limits.
All is Infinite and Unbound!

And since all is infinite and unbound there really are no answers; only
choices!

Truth is whatever we each choose to believe it is.
It is our egos that prevents us from admitting that the truth we ourselves
perceive is only our truth and not just one of infinite truths that may not be
true to anyone else.


Since I really believe that is true, than I must admit to myself, that my belief in Skeptical Idealism is also just another illusion also.
Since all is illusion we can not pick and choose and say what someone else believes in is an illusion, but what I believe in is not. All is Illusion, even what I myself believe!

If that sounds like insanity to you, I fully agree. It is insanity, which goes a long way in explaining just about everything we need to know about the mind, life, the Universe and everything.

From the perspective of Skeptical Idealism we are all insane!

No one ever promised Reality must be sane, to assume so, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, is madness.

?When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.?
Samuel Langhorne Clemens

Thank you for this, and sorry I don't know your geographical location. Just there was a very interesting "Horizon" program on the BBC the other evening (http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00nhv56/Horizon_20092010_The_Secret_You/) that basically bore most of this out.

Thank you!
I'm in the North Eastern part of the USA but the program doesn't play for me. I'll check You Tube.
Sooner or later all these documentries end up on You Tube!!

Still will not play for me and I didn't find anything on You Tube or the net.
Would really like to see what it is all about.
Do you have any other links that might work?
