Realizing anything is placing a reoccurring experience within a bigger reoccurring experience.
For example, learning the definition of a new word. Once we “realize” what the word means, we can place it within our use of vocabulary.
A better example is the concept of zero (0). Humans intuitively understand the concept of zero. Regarding the history of math, however, the concept of zero wasn’t always as integral to the other numbers.
The first recorded zero appeared in Mesopotamia around 3 B.C. The Mayans invented it independently circa 4 A.D. It was later devised in India in the mid-fifth century, spread to Cambodia near the end of the seventh century, and into China and the Islamic countries at the end of the eighth. Zero reached western Europe in the 12th century.
There tended towards a realization of zero until it was standardized. The same can be said for negative numbers or imaginary numbers.
Prior to the concept of negative numbers, mathematicians such as Diophantus considered negative solutions to problems “false” and equations requiring negative solutions were described as absurd.
Instead of math, our existential limits are defined by words such as “ego” or “self.”
We have self-realizations.
The same can be said when two people get together. Two ego’s become one, in a way. There’s synchronicity.
Racism is when someway denies their self’s involvement is the synchronicity of another ego because of skin color.
