I submit that a fundamental characteristic of sentient life on this planet is a blind inner eye. We have accomplished so much scientifically over the last 2 centuries, yet we still stumble through the world blind to the Universe around us. When one opens the inner eye, though, your mind can act as an antenna for the knowledge of the Universe. A truly open mind will pluck ideas from the void with no background to understand them. You may have experienced this as a moment of extreme creativity, but it may be much more than that. I submit that the Universe is an open book; one must simply open their mind by forgetting the combined experiences of your other five senses. A difficult task considering the years we have spent mastering them. If one can break those chains, though, what is possible? Should an infinite Universe have finite possiblities? The future is what you choose it to be.
