Why Do We See Things Differently?
Everyone’s pure perception is the same.
An apple or a familiar name is placed in front of us, and immediately, we acknowledge what or who it is – without words. This is pure consciousness.
Pure consciousness is already aware, before we colour the situation with names, ideas and bias.
Pure consciousness dims into ordinary, opinionated consciousness, and that is the reason why we see things differently.
How we interpret what is seen depends on our experience and imagination – the faculty of forming new views not present to the senses – and seeing possible consequences.
