As a result of the physical facts described so far, we may conclude the
following. Everything we see, touch, hear, and perceive as matter", "the
world" or "the universe" is nothing but electrical signals occurring in our

Someone eating a fruit in fact confronts not the actual fruit but its per-
ception in the brain. The object considered to be a "fruit" by the person ac-
tually consists of an electrical impression in the brain concerning the
shape, taste, smell, and texture of the fruit. If the sight nerve travelling to
the brain were to be severed suddenly, the image of the fruit would sud-
denly disappear. Or a disconnection in the nerve travelling from the sen-
sors in the nose to the brain would completely interrupt the sense of smell.
Simply put, the fruit is nothing but the interpretation of electrical signals
by the brain.

Another point to be considered is the sense of distance. Distance,
which is to say the distance between you and this book, is only a feeling of
emptiness formed in your brain. Objects that seem to be distant in that per-
son's view also exist in the brain. For instance, someone who watches the



stars in the sky assumes that they are millions of light-years away from

him. Yet what he "sees" are really the stars inside himself, in his centre of

vision. While you read these lines, you are, in truth, not inside the room

you assume you are in; on the contrary, the room is inside you. Your seeing

your body makes you think that you are inside it. However, you must re-
member that your body, too, is an image formed inside your brain

The same applies to all your other perceptions. For instance, when

you think that you hear the sound of the television in the next room, you

are actually experiencing the sound inside your brain. You can neither

prove that a room exists next to yours, nor that a sound comes from the

television in that room. Both the sound you think to be coming from me-

ters away and the conversation of a person right near you are perceived in

a few centimetre-square centre of hearing in your brain. Apart from this

centre of perception, no concept such as right, left, front or behind exists.

That is, sound does not come to you from the right, from the left or from

the air; there is no direction from which the sound comes.

The smells that you perceive are like that too; none of them reach you

from a long distance. You suppose that the end-effects formed in your cen-

tre of smell are the smell of the objects in the outside. However, just as the

The Real Essence of Matter


As a result of artificial stimulations, a physical

world as true and realistic as the real one can be

formed in our brain without the existence of

physical world. As a result of artificial stimula-

tions, a person may think that he is driving in his

car, while he is actually sitting in his home.



image of a rose is in your centre of vision, so the smell of this rose is in your
centre of smell; you can never know whether the original of that rose or
smell really exists outside.
The "external world" presented to us by our perceptions is merely a
collection of the electrical signals reaching our brain. Throughout our lives,
these signals are processed by our brain and we live without recognising
that we are mistaken in assuming that these are the original versions of
matter existing in the "external world". We are misled because we can
never reach the matter itself by means of our senses.
Moreover it is again our brain that interprets and attributes meaning
to the signals that we assume to be the "external world". For example, let
us consider the sense of hearing. It is in fact our brain that transforms the
sound waves in the "external world" into a symphony. That is to say, music
is also a perception created by our brain. In the same manner, when we see
colours, what reaches our eyes are merely electrical signals of different
. It is again our brain that trans-
forms these signals into colours. There are no
colours in the "external world"
. Neither is the
apple red nor is the sky blue nor the trees
green. They are as they are just because we
perceive them to be so. The "external world"
depends entirely on the perceiver.

Even a slightest defect in the retina of the
eye causes colour blindness. Some people per-
ceive blue as green, some red as blue, and
some all colours as different tones of grey. At
this point, it does not matter whether the ob-
ject outside is coloured or not.
The prominent thinker Berkeley also ad-

dresses this fact:

At the beginning, it was believed thatcolours,
, etc., "really exist", but subsequently
such views were renounced, and it was seen
that they only exist in dependence on our

In conclusion, the reason we see objects
coloured is not because they are coloured or

The findings of modern physics show

that the universe is a collection of per-

ceptions. The following question ap-

because they have an independent material existence outside ourselves.
The truth of the matter is rather thatall the qualities we ascribe to objects
are inside us and not in the "external world
So what remains of the "external world"?
