“What we see as death, empty space,
or nothingness is only the trough between the crests
of this endlessly waving ocean. It is all part of the illusion
that there should seem to be something to be gained in the future,
and that there is an urgent necessity to go on and on until we get it.
Yet just as there is no time but the present,
and no one except the all-and-everything,
there is never anything to be gained—
though the zest of the game is to pretend that there is.”

— Alan Watts

Can We Really Trust What We See?   1 comment

illusion-imageEdward H. Adelson

“…every newspaper is also a visual illusion!”

“For the brain, perception is very often dependent on context.”

The above image is one of five in the Scientific American article, “The Neuroscience of Illusion: How Tricking the eye reveals the inner workings of the brain.”

Do we all have our own specific illusion of reality? The eye doesn’t provide enough information for the brain to figure out exactness in what we see.  Since we do see, the brain is, therefore, filling in the voids, which is why we see illusions. “Can you trust your lying eyes – or any of your other senses and memory? Not really!”
