'Allowing the outside theoretical possibility that our beloved physical matter reality may be a local reality, a subset of something larger, is the first step toward comprehending a bigger picture. This possibility breaks the conventional paradigm of physical matter reality being all there is, and replaces it with a more expansive paradigm that forms a logical super set - the limited little picture concept is fully contained within a more general bigger picture concept. If the larger and more general paradigm provides a better and more concise understanding of the available data, as well as produces valuable new knowledge, approaches and processes, then the more general conceptualization is also a more accurate, productive and truer representation of the whole. An improved reality paradigm is one that broadens and deepens the available solution space relative to existing data and problems in a way that is practical and useful. It is easy to understand the limitations of a bacterium's perspective as it is difficult to understand the limitations of our own perspective. That is natural enough. We cannot be aware of what is beyond our awareness. However, we can be open to learn new things. And in the process, expand the scope of our awareness, and therefore, our reality to it's outer limits.'
