Merely An Illusion

Atoms and molecules contain mostly empty space. That means anything we touch or see is mostly empty space, and yet we experience plants and birds and rocks and people as solid things. Clearly, our brains pick up the slack and interpret our environment so we can comprehend it and interact with one another. This leads to a interesting question: As our brains are limited by our senses and seem unable or untrained to detect the space making up objects what then is reality if not an illusion?


Einstein's quote: Reality is merely an illusion albeit a very persistent one.
