This blog is just a space for me to write what I perceive of the world.
It is a place where there is nothing unborrowed from the eye.
Rocks look hard; but we only think so because when we see a rock, we classify it as such, and thus the appearance of the rock takes on “hardness”. Actually, though, hardness cannot be seen; only felt. When we look at rocks without thinking of them as rocks, they neither look hard nor soft; we see an image, we do not project a conception of what that object would feel like onto it. In this way, we do not add anything to what we see, and sight becomes more what it really is.
