Weekend Quote (14)

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
–Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I don’t know why I love this line so much. It’s like confirming some ideas that everything is just happening inside our head. I read a book (a science book) about this, several years ago. It said that because everything that we see, touch, feel, smell, or hear is a product of impulses that is translated by our brain, we can not be sure whether it’s real or not.

It’s like someone who has hallucination or illusion, his/her brain gives false translation of some impulses, but s/he believes that it was real. I think it’s not impossible if, on the contrary, something that seems unreal to somebody else is definitely real for us.

Okay, I don’t want to ramble too much. All I wanted to say is, I like the idea that there are many things that we don’t know and don’t understand, so it doesn’t stop me believing the extraordinary.
