“…it is fascinating that normally, and in the case of vision let’s say, we don’t see what is out there. We are consciously aware of the label of things, the whole, the concept, the gestalt as we say but we are not conscious of the parts that comprise the whole. It is very interesting. Our executive brain does exactly what any executive wants to know, the final decision. Our brain deliberately inhibits the information that comes from the lower level sensory raw information…normally we have filters on our perceptions. We have a filtered version of the world. We don’t see what’s out there. We actually see what our brain has accumulated from past experiences.”
