“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.
