I think a lot of the confusion in regards to subjectivity and an objective reality comes from the understandable tendency to interpret the quantum reality in terms of our physical reality, as opposed to our physical reality in terms of the quantum reality that more accurately creates the physical reality, as opposed to being created by our physical reality. At a quantum level, the apparent solidarity in physical reality is merely a cluster of subatomic energetic probabilities, taking on a temporary form of logical geometric and linear structure in the occurrence of observation. There are an infinite number of simultaneously existing structures within the energetic probability-field, forming an infinite number of alternate realities.

How is it, then, that we inhabit the reality that we do, with all of the circumstances it entails? It is the natural result of our state of consciousness, with its various beliefs, logical structures, and definitions. In reality, there is an incredible chaos that exists, that includes all of these different potential realities. Our brain, or our consciousness, creates order out of this, and collapses the chaos into one understandable reality. It is our tendency to believe that reality as we know it is the “real” reality. This is simply not the case.

This could be called subjectivity, which many people have a problem with. It must be understood that just because there are other possibilities besides what you “know” about your reality, it does not take away from the reality or logic of it. It is to say that what really exists is an infinitely complex array of possibilities, essentially chaos, something like white noise. That does not make reality nonsensical or arbitrary. Within this chaos there exists many different logical possibilities. What you perceive is one possibility. That does not make what you know, or any of the possibilities, illegitimate. It can be perfectly logical, and observably true. It’s just to say that it not the ONLY thing that is true. This is something that tends to be tricky for people. The concept that it is possible for more than one thing to be right, and for that to not take away from the rightness of whatever it is that you think you know.
