75% of input to our visual cortex
does not come from our eyes but from the rest of our brain…
So only 25% of the information that comes through our eyes from the outside world is part of our total visual experience. Perhaps, then, seeing is not necessarily believing.
That’s might be why the language of colour is so important in our perception of it.
And why we experience some colours differently *from others, and the same colour differently *from other people.
*Perhaps this should be differently to, too tired to investigate.
