Wonderful title "Mistaking the world we've made for the real world," and I in the world we've made agree with it. It was probably in middle middle age, more than 20 years ago, that I began to become aware that I see and am conditioned to see a very thin slice of the whole spectrum of what is, and think that is the entire spectrum. I began being aware that my thoughts are within a narrow range that is survival enhancing and survival limiting and even survival threatening. I think the full range would be too much for my limited human self, but the range we created is too narrow -- we do some throwing the baby out with the bath water, some cutting off from the neck down to save our head. What helps me to wake up, see and hear more than my projection is searching, being open, paying attention, discussing, listening, reading, reflecting. I think searching and being open are major ingredients.
