Perception: What is Real?

Perception: What is Real?

The tiniest micron of life within our universe is connected to the largest through a common and balanced equilibrium, a denominator that I have come to refer to as: THE ONE. However, our ability to connect to this realm is proportional to our ability to use our brain fully. Scientists have argued that humans use only 10 per cent of brain capacity. Let's pause for a moment to contemplate (silently) all the good mankind has achieved, along with all the bad, just with 10 per cent of brain power.

I hypothesise that at a level beyond 50 per cent, our brain capacity will begin to distinguish other realms like say, sounds in space or, life beyond our own medium. However, the true magical powers of our brain could only be achieved when its capacity begins to reach 90-100 per cent of its awesome power. At such a level, our reality will bare no resemblance to our current world or universe as our ability to see and feel will be fully and correspondingly attained. At such a time, reality could only be a pigment of our current imagination.

In contrast, our reality in 2020 is reflected through only 10 per cent of our brain capacity. This scope, albeit limited to 10 per cent, is able to function within and is mediated through our five senses. Therefore, it is fair to argue that the current reality of our world is defined through our abilities to see, hear, feel (by touch) smell and taste. If we cannot distinguish it through our senses, it is not real (even if it in fact exists). I prefer to illustrate this statement as follows.

It is striking to note that atoms were not in fact real, until they became visible through an electron microscope. X-ray and ultraviolet light enabled our sense of vision to identify colours beyond what we actually distinguish in the naked eye. Powerful audio devices help us hear the sound of a baby's heart inside the mother's womb or even distinguish sounds in space. It is from this perspective that our senses define our reality and our lives.

I hereby predict that in hundreds or thousands of years, our tactile abilities will extend to beyond touch thereby concomitantly progressing with our own brain capacity. Accordingly, I imagine our human species to be able in the future to feel energy and sense each other's intentions through touch.

Another crucial factor that plays a major role in aiding or hindering our senses is: 'Perception' which can be easily explained by using 'sunglasses' in the following example. Thus, wearing brown or amber spectacles, makes the world appear through our eyes as brown or amber respectively. Conversely, it is obvious that changing the colour of our glasses does not in turn change the natural colour of our world.

Another example to illustrate 'Perception' is the proverb: 'Making a mountain out of a molehill'. This proverb refers to overactive mind-mediated behaviour where a person makes too much out of a minor issue. Significantly, this ability to perceive events around us could be trained skillfully and positively to bring about beneficial ramifications. Thus, improving and, or altering positively the quality of the lens through which we view our world can have awesome results on our lifestyle.

It follows from all the above, that in fact, nothing is what it seems in actual reality. In fact, our mind and senses play tricks with our general perception as human beings, whilst our species appear to be totally oblivious to their hypnotic and subconscious powers.

Therefore, I would beg to ask the following question: 'Can we in fact meet the challenges of our 'Perception' head-on by reciprocating (or reversing) our own senses' playfulness thereby yielding immensely pleasurable rewards. This question along with the above introduction are designed to highlight the power of our senses and to explain logically how a 'Skin Care' range of products could be specifically geared to take an immense advantage out such a scientific and philosophical phenomenon. It is postulated herein that by feeding through this power, we can positively impact our reality, thereby creating a correspondingly positive result.

In MIND MY SKIN, our Founder Mr. Alisha Khodr and our Principle Scientist Dr. Robert Kaldawi (Ph.D., Biochemistry) aim at using our five senses synergistically as depicted above. Accordingly, our novel and smart formulations, aim to improve dramatically our lifestyle, by significantly altering the way we distinguish (or perceive) the reality of our world and those around us.

Please stay tuned as we reveal the secret powers of our active ingredients in the MIND MY SKIN range of products which are strategically designed to enable our senses to yield maximum benefits towards a healthy lifestyle, both physically and mentally.
