In the real world, we all have a way of seeing things differently. And even on cloudy days, we find ways to see that the world around us is in fact a completely different place than it appears to us on our first day of school.
For example, I can go to my favorite coffee shop and not see that the light is so bright above me that it makes my eyes hurt. Or I can see the light above me on a cloudless day and not realize that it’s really a different thing.
Clouded days are those days when the sun is blocked out completely, but the light still shines. The difference is one of perception. Your eyes are more sensitive to light, so they can see more details as you get older and have more experience with the world around you. But your brain is still sensitive to light, so it can perceive a difference in the way the world appears to you as you get older.
Clouds in the sky are a great example of what I was talking about. The clouds create a “shadow” around us and let us see more of what’s around us. Clouded days create a similar effect, but the difference is it’s a bit more subtle. There’s a difference between day and dusk, but you don’t notice the difference because your brain doesn’t have the ability to “see” the difference.
I think the problem with this concept is that it just doesn’t explain how the brain perceives light. It seems like light is somehow perceived as solid and hard, whereas in reality your eyesight can adapt. My thought is that maybe were actually perceiving a difference in the way the world appears to us as we get older.
When I say that we have a bit of a problem in our brains seeing the world as it is now, I mean in regards to how the brain perceives light, the ability to see color, and how the brain thinks about time. If you’ve ever had enough light on a good day, and you look out your window and see a dark sky, you can’t help but think that you’re seeing the world through a tinted lens.
A lot of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot.
Why is such a simple question? The first thought in our minds may be that we don’t have a way to get out of here, but that’s not the case. We seem to have a pretty good handle right now.
We also tend to think that we can control what we see in the outside world. This is because we can easily pick out specific parts of the world that we know we can do anything with. Thats basically all we can do with our own minds. But that doesnt mean that we can’t control what we see in the outside world. It just means that we have to be prepared to be exposed to different light sources.
