When you give a red rose to your beloved on Valentine's Day, you have every right to say, "I made this for you." All the qualities that a rose possesses -- its velvety texture, its lush red color, even its thorns -- are real to us because our perception makes them real. Photons of light have no color, only frequencies and wavelengths. The point of a thorn has no sharpness. The scent of a rose isn't sweet when seen merely as airborne molecules. The reality of these specific qualities is tied to us. The brain processes electrochemical signals sent from photoreceptors in the eye to "create" the color red. Skin-encapsulated mechanosensory receptors send electrochemical signals that reassure us of a solid "material" world, but the prick of a thorn is created by our brain. Indeed we now know that the brain takes into account a number of factors to choose how much pain to create; varying any one of these factors can affect how prickly the same thorn is.
There is no provable link between "this is what I see" and "this is real." With a different brain comes a shift of perception, and everything about a rose would change. Roses exist in the world of snails that chew the leaves, aphids that suck the sap, moths that lay eggs in hidden crevices and cats that lurk underneath to wait for a bird to alight. But what these organisms experience is certainly not the rose for Valentine's Day. As humans we have no conceivable way of entering the perceptual world of those creatures. We can only imagine a link, and then we take our imagined similarities for granted.
In this re-airing, blogger Sacerdotus addressed the atheist attack that theists are not "in reality" or that believing in God or having faith is alien to reality. Using physics and philosophy, Sacerdotus refutes this argument and shows that reality is nothing more than charged particles, force fields, empty space and how our brains interpret these electrical charges in order to contruct the world. In light of this, we have trust or faith that what our brains perceive is really what exists.
Philosophers of the past have gotten pretty close to realizing what reality really is via metaphysicals. Moreover, physics has confirmed most of their thought experiments. Claiming that those who believe in God are not in reality is a silly statment to make. Sacerdotus explains why this fallacious reasoning does not hold water against physics and metaphysics.
This edition of Perception Is Reality, hosted by Larry Goodman, Bill Behrens, and Trent Van Drisse, featured a guest appearance by Stephen Platinum, a lively discussion of the art booking long-term stories, dos and don'ts of developing wrestling characters, and A.J. Styles' current role in TNA.

What is Perception and how does it affect our reality as we know it? How do you perceive the world around you? Take a moment to think about all the things you perceive on a daily basis. Did you know your personal experiences, your emotional state of being can greatly affect how you perceive things and shape up your reality? At any given moment, you might see familiar objects in your environment, feel the touch of objects and people against your skin, smell the aroma of a home-cooked meal and hear the sound of music playing in your next door neighbor's apartment. All of these things help make up our conscious experience and allow us to interact with the people and objects around us.
Did know, Perception not only creates your experience of the world around you; but shapes your environment as well?

What does perception mean? Is it showing us reality? A Course in Miracles teaches that “I see nothing as it is now.” It also says that we are not upset for the reason we think.
As an EFT practitioner I know how true this is. I start tapping with one perception of why I am angry. When done, I see the situation completely different, without anger. This transformation of our way of seeing is why I do EFT tapping: because, “I am determined to see things differently.” (Lesson 21).
You respond to what you perceive, and as you perceive so shall you behave. The Golden Rule asks you to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This means that the perception of both must be accurate…You cannot behave appropriately unless you perceive correctly.
My problem is a misperception. When I release past and future associations, I see accurately, and the problem is gone. The Light of Truth, or Holy Spirit, in our mind, has the power to correct misperceptions.
The Holy Spirit begins by perceiving you as perfect, knowing this perfection is shared He recognizes it in others, thus strengthening it in both. Instead of anger this arouses love for both, because it establishes inclusion.
Perception can either lead us to joining and love; or separation and fear. One accurately reflects divine reality; the other miscreates a world where vulnerability and conflict are seen as normal and real.
Reality and perception are not in opposition as the title implies. Reality is all there is. Perception paints over the masterpiece with invisible paint, hiding it. But invisible paint can’t hide anything! We recognize this when we wake up to reality.
