Seeing the Unseen

How do you see something you can’t see? We gather information to find truth or to prove our point, but sometimes we want to learn something new. Our brain sorts through all the input from our senses and decides what is useful and what isn’t. It even has the ability to fill in the gaps to complete a picture. How do learn a new truth when our brain is picking and choosing the information for us? Your Hidden Censor – Scientific American

In the physical world, astronomers have the same problem. For years they relied on telescopes and light that was visible to their eyes. Instead of using visual light and eyesight, they needed to use other methods. Regarding the discovery of the now termed Dark Energy or Dark Matter,

How do you see something that is dark, if by dark you mean as astronomers in the 1970’s and 1980’s did, impossible to see. How do you do something that is by your own definition, impossible to do? – The 4% Universe, Dark Matter, Dark Energy, and the Race to Discover the Rest of Reality

We have to do the same thing as the astronomers did. Ask questions, to our equals and our non-equals. Read, learn, and question. Be open to other possibilities. The first step is becoming comfortable with not knowing. When you step up and say, I don’t know if I’m right. Can you help me see this better? At that moment you will start seeing and doing the impossible. It’s like discovering a hidden door in your house. A room opens that you never knew existed. Wonder and delight are in that room along with the undiscovered years of dust.

When you make an empty space for knowledge, the information will come. The first answer may or not be correct. The purpose of seeing the unseen is to continually grow your sight. Never stop and settle. Never close the door and say, I’ve learned that. I’ll move on now. Anything closed is finished. Life isn’t a task list of items to be learned. It’s a constant growth cycle of building and destroying. Learning and unlearning. I wouldn’t go up to a 6th grader and tell him he’s finished learning math. Not even a college student. There’s always more to explore.
