What are you seeing? Are you seeing what you are ‘seeing’, and is it an accurate appraisal of reality, and what is ‘reality’, anyway? Let us pursue this, shall we?

It is important to understand that material things exist for yus only because of our ability to perceive thad interpret them.

When you look at ‘something’, what are you looking at? This is a better question than the veneer.
To begin with. EYES. Humans have two eyes which produce a retinal image which is inverted. So, to begin with what we see is inverted from the object. This is an interesting phenomenon.

Those images are then sent to the human brain for ‘INTERPRETATION’. Humans have bi-focal vision, so the images are combined and interpreted in a way and at a speed which is beyond the processing power of a CRAY computer.
Then based on what we have been taught, learned – both instinctually and recently, ‘seen’, as a reality of the situation. However, without much study, it can be seen that this interpretation of the reality of the situation will almost inevitably be fraught with errors from many sources and reasons, leading to the inevitable ‘seen’, not being reality, but ‘reality as you see it’.

Other animals have a different vision experience. Some, with two eyes, they get two images, not one, to be interpreted independently. And their eyes can see different directions at the same time.
I am fascinated by spiders, study them, and raise them. What do they see?

Many have six eyes. The front two differ from the back four. The front two are better at seeing than the back four. The back four basically see shadows. The front two give a better interpretation of what is going on. However, as with most animals, they realize the flaws with using this to interpret reality. Spiders have hairs on their backs which work like ‘joy sticks.’ If a fly or other insect flies over them from behind, those hairs will register this from wind, and the spider can jump, turn, and accurately capture their prey, without the use of sight at all.

Many other animals know this as well. Snakes, for example, can see, but they rely more on the infrared sensors in their nose area to know what is going on. If it sensed heat, they will strike, iregardless of what they are seeing. When catching a snake, I strike a lighter at about their length to get them to strike. Then when stretched out, I catch them by the head, hopefully. This has to be done with precision.

Back to human vision. If it is day or night, will it affect that vision? If you are wearing sunglasses will it affect that vision? Does what is going on skew that vision. So, is what you are seeing accurate?

If you cannot even trust what you are seeing, you can forget about what you are being told as an accurate interpretation of reality.

Reality is a personal experience based on many flawed factors.

Reality, as best as humans can discern, was best described by Albert Einstein in his Theory of Relativity. Because the heading contains the word ‘relativity’, should tell you something.
