Consensus reality

  • The level of reality to which a collective of beings agrees, including all individuals within the collective, whether or not they recognize it.
  • Consensus reality determines the kinds of experiences that are possible for the collective that agrees to it, and for the individuals within that collective.
  • The range of possible experiences given the constraints – expectations and beliefs – within the collective mind of humanity. Different commonly held expectations and beliefs lead to different experiential realities. If there are no expectations or beliefs, then literally everything is possible.
  • As long as consensus reality is based on separation to any degree, the term “consensus reality” is a misnomer. A reality based on separation is not a reality. Moreover, if all beings seem to be in general agreement within a paradigm of separation, such agreement is unconscious and is therefore not consensual.
