NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has sent back the first in a series of the sharpest views of Pluto it obtained during its July flyby and the best close-ups of Pluto that humans may see for decades. [1]

In another story: Scientists have long known that when sounds are faint or objects are seen through fog in the distance, repetition of these weak or ambiguous sensory ‘inputs’ can result in different perceptions inside the same brain. Now the results of new research, described online Dec. 7 in the journal Nature Neuroscience, have identified brain processes in mice that may help explain how those differences happen. [2]

Vision: Totally subjective. Dependent on the scale on which we see things. Dependent on the brain which interprets signals from sensory organs. Dependent on our own perception of things. Dependent on the weather. Dependent on… fog.

And yet we tend to believe only what we see.

The only catch is that we do not realize we trust our eyes not because we believe they are objective. But because we believe our mind is. After all, who wouldn’t trust his own mind?

Stop thinking. And you will stop seeing.

Stop seeing and everything will stop existing.

Being: What is left when you are in the… fog seeing “nothing”.

See now?
