“It is not to be or not to be, to be is not to be” Alan Watt
You are absolutely right in your observation of reality. However, they are made from the same temporal perspective as idealists and materialists. None of them is right.
Tycho Brahe observations of the movement of the planets among the stars were very adequate, but nothing could come out of them until we understood that his observations were made from the wrong perspective of the planets rotating around the sun while the sun was still revolving around the earth.
To understand reality we need to understand the nature of time and space and how it affects energy matter life and consciousness. Once we do, everything will remain the same from our perspective, but we will gain the resources needed to control the power that we have become while using the forces of nature that our understanding that we are not at the center of the universe, but a tiny part of it allowed us to discover.
Here’s an interesting fact. From our point of view, to explain the behavior of the planets, we need to have them execute epicycles, which are the combined sum of “two circles.” When we understood that we were not at the center of the universe but that the planets and the earth rotate around the sun on ellipses, everything remains the same but fell into place since an ellipse is effectively composed of two circles.
PS I am 74 and don’t have the time left to allow me to explore a new intelligent perspective (yours). I have worked at the elaboration of mine for 45 years and am almost ready to publish.
For more information about what I am doing, you can look at Explaining the Trump Phenomenon in Evolutionary Terms.
I will soon publish independently an unspecialized PhD dissertation in which I will eventually expose my understanding of time after I have formulated my General Theory of Evolution based on it. Which is as different from Darwin’s as Quantum mechanics is from the General Theory of Evolution, and which allow me to unify these two latter theories in ways understandable by all honest mind while showing where we stand in time as conscious individuals.
“It is the theory which decides what we can observe.” Einstein
If you want to review my dissertation you can follow me on Medium or Quora.
The best would be to have your email so I can send it to you personally for reviewing.
