Observe the objective world 

directly through the senses.

                                   Representations are undermined 

                                   from glitches in the physiology 

                                   of the brain.

 

Sunset, various parts of Melbourne city. 

Loud crowds distract and

fluorescent lights distract and

Graceful infrastructure

Blocks the view

Of the sunset.

 

Sunset, 

 

Open space.

 

                     Man walks his dog

 

Large    open                green.

 

                     Boy roller-skates 

 

Inclined                    rough           concrete.

Was the water in the lake’s movement assumed because 

     The water in the lake’s movement was expected.

                                                       Anticipate darkness.

Heightened activity during darkness, 

Recalling better sunset experience or 

darkness

                                       makes the system less able to      

                                       distinguish.

 

                           (Think harder about what is out there.) Less is out there?

                     An important evolutionary survival aspect. 

Wasteful, though.
