Well, is it, punk?

No, it's just your reality - not necessarily factual or accurate.
Never mind the bollocks
Just because you cannot see the forest does not mean it is not there... Perception is a tool to help anchor the conscience to this world and help our feeble minds to comprehend what little we can.
(Hopes that doesn't sound half as pretentious as I think it does.)
Perception is everything. :tongue:
If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck...it's probably a duck.:biggrin1:
But what if its a mallard? Or a goose? Perceptions are fallible. Easily fooled. Just ask David Blain. Lol
Personally, I think that unless you're under the influence of certain substances, perception is reality. Or at least your individual reality. Do you think it is? Well, do ya, punk?
"Individual Reality" is not the same as reality I think. Perception dictates how you see "your" world but not how the world actually is. Right?
Reality exists, independent of cognition. Just because one is not aware of a thing's existence does not mean it doesn't exist.
I see the world as a beautiful place, a depressed person might see it as a cruel and callous place. Personally, I think we need to see the world through the eyes of everyone to truly see it for what it is. There may well be things beyond our understanding - but seeing things through all eyes would be a big step toward true understanding. That's my opinion anyway. (I feel like a hippy scientist.)
'Tis a logical truth.
And just because one believes oneself aware of a thing's existence does not mean it exists.
I wuv oo ... :smile:
... but this can't be done.
I wuv woo too. :07: You can do it...in my perceived world.
Be right over.
Curse you! :tongue: I needn't fear though, you'd be scared away by my pet rooster. He guards my most intimate domain.
...which is a nice way of restating what I said...
BTW, this could well be one of the stupidest polls ever posted on LPSG.
Isn't there a difference?
Hhuck added something extra about how some beliefs can be fallible. False interpretation of awareness can be believable.
Your statement was about the fallibility of knowing of a thing's existence due to a lack of awareness.
I don't know. I'm just a bucolic oaf from Awendaw, SC. It's impossible for me to know anything because I went to school in the US, and impossible for me to have any intelligence (other than the feigned kind, whatever that is) because I believe in God.
Perception is just another construction of the mind, ready to fall down like a house of cards.
