Reality is more than the sum of the fundamentals, qualities, theories and models we can derive, determine and deduce of reality from the phenomenal world we experience.
The phenomenal world is created and projected by the whole self through the brain-spine or CNS (Central Nervous System) from the “phenomenal aspects of reality” that presents to the sensory organs of the whole body, who is in reality. The phenomenal world is regarded as what presents to our senses, but we as an identity do not have eyes or other sense organs. The world we may experience and try to understand also defines our phenomenal world in which case it may include our inner and not just our outer world.
It is the whole self who has the sense organs in reality and the brain-spine (CNS) that receives information from them, of the “phenomenal aspects of reality” that present to those sense organs or that they are sensitive to and register, and processes that information to create what we may experience. We may think we see and perceive, and indeed act. However, it is the whole body who does all that we think we do, and allows us to be and think that we exist and do things. The only thing that we can say we definitely do, is “have an experience”.
