“Virtual Reality” , Buddhas Brain

“Sometimes these poisons are conspicuous; much of the time, however, they operate in the background of your awareness, firing and wiring quietly along.
.
.
They do this by using your brain’s extraordinary capacity to represent both inner experience and the outer world.
.
.
For example, the blind spots in your left and right visual fields don’t look like holes out there in the world; rather, your brain fills them in, much like photo software shades in the red eyes of people looking toward a flash.
.
.
In fact, much of what you see “out there” is actually manufactured “in here” by your brain, painted in like computer-generated graphics in a movie.
.
.
Only a small fraction of the inputs to your occipital lobe comes directly from the external world;
.
.
the rest comes from internal memory stores and perceptual-processing modules (Raichle 2006).”
.
.
.
.
Reality is distorted significantly when the mind is not empty.
.
.
Bias prevails subconsciously first.
.
.
Awareness uncovers our virtual reality.
