“Quasi Reale”

We define our reality from our own perceptions

The Damanhurian concept of “Quasi Reale” puts individuals at the center of their own life experience. Objective reality does not exist. Instead, the Quasi Reale takes into consideration the reality that each of us individually perceives, depending on one’s character, experience and the particular moment we are going through, as well as the ability to convey one’s perceptions to others. All of this results in an extraordinarily diverse range of viewpoints, opinions and memories.

In order to truly be in relationship with others, we must be aware that there are many possible Quasi Reales. This is needed in order to not only respect other’s perspectives but to allow ourselves to experience the possibility that there is no such thing as “one reality.” Each subjective reality is neither right nor wrong; they reflect the thousands of nuances that define the differences among individuals from various cultures around the world.

Beyond being respectful of diversity, Damanhurians believe that it is necessary to show humility, openness, a willingness to communicate with others, and an ability to accept visions that are different from our own. All of this helps us to avoid being alone in our experience and it brings us closer to others.
