One of the philosophers that has a major influence on para-realism is Rene Descartes who changed the way we look at things completely. He questioned the very nature of reality and had a fundamental impact on mathematics and the sciences. He was a man who defied the dogma of his times, and considering we live in an age where dogma and superstition has been making a huge comeback it’s time we started taking up some of Descarte’s philosophical points again.
Everywhere you turn there is either religious or political fundamentalists screaming at you. Even the atheist fundamentalists are extreme. Group think is being pushed on us from every direction and I, as Descartes before me, look upon such things as dangerous to the well being of society. You should question everything you’re told and listen to different sides. All sides are only giving you their version of reality. The reality that humans see is incomplete. Relying on one point of view is a sure way to remain ignorant.
