I don't think anyone could know. I see it as beyond man's capacity for knowledge. I'm curious about how one could find out, but so far I haven't seen convincing proof of any model of metaphysics, simply because there's no data to base any decision on.
How can an energy system that is seemingly not physical, be proved to exist. Do you dream? they seem 'real' we believe on some level our dreams are real, but we don't ask for proof that they are real.
So what do we have? A limited human view of existance and dense physical matter that seems to be reasonably uncreative. SR is simply a way to see the world, most people don't like it because it places identity outside human beings and they are so inert in their humaness they think and fear that's all they are.
One third of our lives is spent being not human when we sleep, people forget that, they think it's just another part of being human. We can't prove anything, but we can take belief systems that empower us and use them to live our lives.
SR is very empowering, but I can see why people struggle with it. The best way to look at it is to see it not through human eyes, don't trust them, they are limited, they can deceive you, see it through consciousness, see it how you'd like to see it. As you observe, you create and you create it right now.
Do you want to look at the world and see selfishness and pain and suffering? Do you want to see poverty and broken relationships, no money and anger? If you don't want to see any of that then stop observing it and it will cease to continue.
Much of SR is covered in most religions and other empowering belief systems. When you want want change, you change yourself, you change your observation of self, you change the inside first and then the outside changes.
If you desire money, love, health, happiness, you have to observe those things inside you first and then the inside with change and then the outside will change (actually there is no outside, but that's another rant
SR does two important things.
1. It makes you take full responsibility for everything.
If it's in your awareness, then it's of your creation.
2. Creation only takes place right now,
not yesterday, not tomorrow, right now, so when you want to change somethining in your world, you change it inside you right now and it will change, it has to.
So it's all you and it's all now
Would you really want to live any other way??
But that you is not you the human being it's you consciousness. Awesome cosmic power, itty, bitty human bean
