Hi All,

In Seth Speaks, Chapter 1, Session 511, Seth tells us that we cannot trust our physical senses to give us a true picture of reality. He tells us that they are “lovely liars”.

More specifically, in this session, he says:

There are several things that I shall ask you to understand. You are not stuck in time like a fly in a closed bottle, whose wings are therefore useless. You cannot trust your physical senses to give you a true picture of reality. They are lovely liars, with such a fantastic tale to tell that you believe it without question. You are sometimes wiser, more creative, and far more knowledgeable when you are dreaming than when you are awake.”

Below is an interesting TED talk’s video that, I think, does a great job of demonstrating exactly what he meant.
