The philosopher came up with a frightening and upside-down theory.
What if our entire reality is nothing more than a dream, just like our lives?
What if death is actually an emergency exit from this dreamlike illusion?
It’s shocking, to many people’s view, that Alan Watts came up with a provocative theory.
He claims that our reality may not even be the reality in which we actually exist. A false reality could be built around us or another level of existence.
It’s like we’re in a dream.
And when we die, we actually wake up on the other side.
And our lives will be remembered as a dreamlike image where even time has passed differently.
Is it possible that individual planes of existence are layered together, as we watched in the movie what title is Inception, starring with Leonardo DiCaprio?
Watts says the image of God in religion is not accident. Return to God, the Creator is actually wake up.
It is also no coincidence that a lof of cultures have in common that death is a gateway to the afterlife and death is a kind of salvation and enlightenment.
In a certain sense, enlightenment is awakening on a mind-set and spiritual level.
If Alan Watts is right, then we need to think fundamentally about what life really is.
However, it must be stressed, of course, that he does not have any evidence, it would be very difficult to prove.
At the same time, the individual contexts can support this – he thought.
