Drifting en route

According to the rules of quantum mechanics, the boundary between the ‘world out there’ and our own subjective consciousness are blurred. When physicists look at atoms or particles of light, what they see depends on how they have set up their experiment. This concept comforted me recently when I was crammed into a train at rush hour, as I found solace in questioning my perception. This concept also motivated this image I recently took. Whilst not being a traditionally perceived version of reality  – it is a version of reality all the same. Its unconventional aesthetic perhaps exemplifying these lofty scientific theories?

But where does this leave us then? What’s the point of anything if we relate by human measure? John Lennon wrote “Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream, it is not dying, it is not dying”. That’ll do for me.
