Not in some astral projection, OBE or something, but in your physical existence.
You snap your fingers and are able to appear in front of you an apple and eat it, snap them again and have in front of you an endless field when before you were sitting in your room. 100% real physically.
How real would these realities be? How real is that apple and that field? Are you by being able to effectively decide the 100% of your perception and convincing yourself in every aspect of it, effectively living it, indeed picking quantum states of possibilities which are different but real from the previous reality? In the same way as how a radio can by changing its signal tune into real stations of music?
Or would you simply be a looney? How would the "other people" percieve you after that? Would you simply disappear from their reality since you are "tuning" into a different reality they arent and thus you would interact with "other people" that were already in that sphere? Would the other people too experience the "shift" and thus you would appear as them as a "supernatural being"? Or would they simply see you as a looney who is acting like one who acts on a play, and you never left your room and you are just making yourself the "make me laugh"?
Mmmm .... I would say this - the greater your flexibility in:
(1) changing your perception of reality; and
(2) moving fluidly between different perspectives
the less likely other people would perceive you as a looney (if you did not want them to perceive you as a looney). Why? Because you retain the ability to understand reality from <i>their</i> perspective and therefore you are able (if you chose) to communicate with them in a way that makes sense to them.
A simple example is Erin Pavlina. While she has the ability to perceive reality in quite different ways from Mr Average Joe, he is unlikely to regard her as insane. This is because Erin retains the ability to understand how Mr Average Joe sees reality. Therefore Erin can selectively tailor her own communication and interaction with Mr Average Joe, in a manner that will not lead Mr Average Joe to think that she is insane.
The most extreme method is simply for Erin to pretend that she sees the world in the same way as Mr Average Joe, and not tell him about the other ways.
