Most of you are familiar to some extent with your homey little universe, its planets, galaxies, comets, that are within your limited ability to see them with your eyes, or your eyes aided by instruments.. You can’t hear them, you can’t reach out and touch them, and you certainly cannot taste them, so your assumptions about the universe are limited to what you can see, and you cannot see much with your eyes alone. Through the use of more sophisticated scientific instruments, you can extend your visual perceptions to extraordinary distances, bringing into view, exciting new objects, and cosmic events.
Everything you see and everything you now perceive and everything that exists even in what is now unperceivable distant space is part of your “System of Reality.” In that respect, your system, the Earth system of reality consists of the discovered and the as yet, undiscovered. Physically speaking, as your universe seems to expand, your system of reality seems to grow, ever becoming more. It is becoming more, but not in terms of expansion in space, and it simply isn’t happening that way. Just as time is an illusion, space is also an illusion. It is expanding in psychological intensity and depth, and you mistakenly interpret that as physical distance.
