Ghost Reflections Off the Mirrors of Our Mind!!!

What you see …

What you experience …

What you feel, touch, taste, sense, hear …

in so-called reality …

is just our mind’s

best guess

of what really exists.

We see holograms …

We see hallucinations …

We see our conscious

interpretations of what

may or

may not

really exist!

What I see

may be experienced


projected differently

in my mind

than in your mind.


slightly different colors …

shades …

shapes …

images …

A different World!

We see not from the ‘outside-in!’


We see from the ‘inside-out!’


Without these holograms …

Without our controlled hallucinations …

Without our consciousness …

there is no Real World!

And as

I’ve posted before…


we just see

Ghost Reflections


the Mirrors


Our Mind!

    Everything in your blog is so… abstract. So, this is how you see the world? Anyway, thanks for letting me know you exist. 🙂

    I love these patterns you make with words, they are like scattered thoughts running across paper. This one is currently my favourite. Until the next one comes along of course, I’m fickle like that.

      Freudian theory underpins Dalí’s attempts at forging a visual language capable of rendering his dreams and hallucinations. These account for some of the iconic and now ubiquitous images through which Dalí achieved tremendous fame during his lifetime and beyond.

      Helen Heller Agency sums up Mirrors:

      Please don’t have your heroine assess her looks in the mirror for the benefit of the reader. Who looks at themselves & thinks ‘I have brown eyes…’?

    I meant Helen Keller not Helen Heller for Peat’s sake! WordPress needs to come up with a better way of editing comments, don’t you think??

      It’s not WordPress! As a former computer type, I’d fire the spellchecker team! They s#*k big time!
