Blind Spots and the Perception of Reality

Wow, a co-worker forwarded this link about the Blind Spot each of our eyes has and it got me to thinking a little.

If Chris Davis (the author of that link) is correct, and this means that our brains are not seeing what is reality, but only our own perception of reality, partially fabricated to fill in missing data; then we are seeing the world we want to see, or perhaps think we ought to see. It brings into question some very interesting debate about what exactly is real.

Makes the quote from Myth-busters even more interesting:

“I substitute your reality with my own.”

    You should read Pinchbeck’s book “2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl” – you’ll enjoy his take on what reality and perception really are. 🙂
