The nature of reality is often an anxiety-inducing question. As human beings, we experience the universe through the lens of an individual primate with thoughts, feelings, instincts, and desires. On a physical basis, we are no different from the fabric of the observable universe; we are merely interacting particles obeying the laws of physics. The particles we are formed from arrange themselves to produce self-aware brains that recognize our existence, and during times of reflection ponder our origins and purpose.
Apart from the physical and the mental, there is the spiritual realm of our being. At close inspection, the particles of the human brain are no different from the particles that make up inanimate matter. The difference is that the particles that compose human brains, along with the particles that compose all beings, host life. Within these particles, or somehow woven between them, there may be an essence or consciousness that is our true identity. While nearly impossible to prove matter-of-factly, exploration of this concept can bring enlightenment to individuals and communities of living beings.
