Ida know, go answer the door!
Sorry. It had to be told! After all, it is a front door...
"Reality is a perception-not a reflection of truth." Or, perhaps, even closer to the truth: "We don't see what we see. We see what we want to see."
Take, for example, the Necker Cube. It demonstrates how we can see something in two different ways even though what we are looking at is the same thing.
This visual illusion is clearly demonstrated here. It is really fascinating as you really cannot control your mind to see the same thing as the object shifts in rotation. Try as you may...
Perception, or what we perceive to be reality is not as concrete as we all tend to believe that it is. But, yet we operate on a daily basis being self-assured in that what we see is reality indeed. We have to, because if we don't, we couldn't function!
But, I want to put it out there to you that reality is a perception. Your perception. My perception. We all have our own interpretations of what our reality is. Which makes the truth an even rarer thing, doesn't it?

Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Hey Harriet. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2010 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account. Click here to view them.
