Wahl und Wirklichkeit

 

“How can I choose except that I think

And on what do I think except what I know

And what do I know except what is linked

To what I perceive of what has been shown

 

And yet I believe without understanding

That in each of us is something unchanging

And even if all that’s around us may alter

Our wills are not bound to follow lest falter”

 

Harold Gielow

 

“Reality is what we take to be true.

  What we take to be true is what we believe.

 What we believe is based on our perceptions.

 What we perceive depends on what we look for.

 What we look for depends on what we think.

 What we think depends on what we perceive.

  What we perceive determines what we believe.

 What we believe determines what we take to be true.

 What we take to be true is our reality.”

 

David Bohm
