Fascinating Brain Documentary (Consciousness & Universe)
Our five senses are not there for us to perceive reality, but to create it. This seems true to me, because we have never experienced anything outside of us, but only inside of us - within our consciousness. For example, we don't see a tree 'over there', but only inside the mind.
We don't hear a dog over there, but only inside the mind. We don't feel a sandy beach under our feet, but only inside the mind. Therefore, in truth, there is no outside world, only mind, only consciousness.
