Realist Beliefs from The Realist Society of Canada
March 19, 2012
Realists believe that reality is completely ontologically independent of our conceptual schemes, linguistic practices, beliefs and our perception.
Those who profess realism, also believe that truth consists in a belief's correspondence to reality. We may speak of realism with respect to other minds, the past, the future, universals, mathematical entities, moral categories, the material world, or even thought.
Realists further believe that whatever we believe now is only an approximation of reality and that every new observation brings us closer to understanding reality. Realists also believe that a common understanding of reality brings peace and is the basis for morality.
Realists worship the self-aware Universe. The self-aware Universe is a conscious, preternatural and immortal deity.
Further, Realists believe that Amit Goswami is a prophet.
The Spirituality of Realism refers to an ultimate reality that enables a person to discover the deepest values and meanings by which people live.
Spiritual practices of Realists include meditation and contemplation. These practices are intended to lead to an experience of connectedness with a larger reality, yielding a more comprehensive self; with other individuals or the entire universe itself.
Practicing Realism is a source of inspiration or orientation in life.
