objects is evened out by the resistance against their falling. Right?But can you really exclude the possibility that for Aristotle and the ancient Greek, realityreally was like thus, that heavier objects fell faster? Nobody can currently prove that itwas not so more than 2000 years ago. Just as much we cannot deny that for Galileo andus currently, objects do not fall faster based on their weight.This example shows that the one theory is not necessarily correct at the expense of theother. What this example shows, is that reality truly is shaped by the mind and theawareness of things as they stand at a certain point in time.And what this predicts is that all theories on reality, including the model dependency,that are based on observational logic, will all be replaced by other theories indefinitelyas our awareness develops through time. Theory will only hit the true mark of understanding, when the viewpoint from outward looking in, will be let go off.The Buddha taught us about this already, more than 2500 years ago as follows:
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts.With our thoughts we make the world.Speak or act with an impure mind And trouble will follow you As the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts.With our thoughts we make the world.Speak or act with a pure mind and happiness will follow youas your shadow, unshakable.
(Dhammapada, translated by Thomas Byrom) With our mind we make our reality. So why do heavier objects fall faster? Because theobservable reality conforms to our mindset that is like that at a certain point of time.These objects fall faster because we share a common idea that they should.Just like airplanes fly through the sky as they do, because we have the shared idea thatflying should be like this.When reading “The Grand Design”, it can be noted that the history of scientificdiscovery is such, that important discoveries almost always start with a brilliant theory, based on insights resulting from pure thought or unexplained experimental findings, not
