It has been scientifically proven that black and white are not colors. In reality, a black object absorbs all the colors of the visible spectrum and reflects none of them to the eyes.

White is what we see when all wavelengths of light are reflected off an object. In physics, a color is a visible light with a specific wavelength. Black and white are not colors because they do not have specific wavelengths. Rather, white light contains all wavelengths of visible light.

Black on the other hand is the absence of visible light. It is also important to note that if an object absorbs all colors but one, we see the color it does not absorb.

To believe contrary to this scientific reality or timeless and self-evident truth is to believe in an illusion. When an illusion is believed, the basic premise of the thinking process will be based on illusion. Subsequently, decisions and actions will be filled with errors that produce a failure-laden life.

There are two kinds of worlds that we function from:

  1. The world of illusion
  2. The world of reality.

In any given situation and at every given moment we function or operate from either the world of illusion or the world of reality. Consequently, the world we function from determines what operates in our lives – success or failure, thus shaping the outcome of our lives.




According to the Dictionary, “Debunk is to show that an idea, a belief, etc. is false; to show that something is not as good as people think it is.


Illusion as the dictionary defines is:

  1. A false idea or belief,  especially about somebody or about a situation.
  2. Something that seems to exist but in fact does not, or seems to be something that it is not.

Therefore, “Debunking the illusions of life” means showing or bringing to light ideas and beliefs that people had been conditioned to believe or accept as truths but in essence are false and constitute mere appearances that may look real at a superficial glance but an in-depth look reveals lack of substance.

These illusions as popular and widely accepted as they are, disempowers and cause the crowd of humanity to grapple in the dark of ignorance which sabotages the quality of life experience at different levels and thwarts the maximization of destiny.

In this series expect a paradigm shift as some of the major illusions of life will be unveiled for what they really are and life-changing truths or reality that makes for an exceptional life will be unraveled causing you to function from the world of reality.
