... our realities are encoded because we are convinced of the evidence!

"HEY! THIS ISN'T HARMLESS CARTOON VIOLENCE -- THIS IS REAL!"
Thought bubble of Special Guest Star Bart Simpson, Itchy & Scratchy Comics #3, 1994

"If things get worse we will get closer to God by killing this journalist."
...here's hoping for what's lost in translation

"It felt like I was in a big video game. It didn't even faze me, shooting back. It was just natural instinct. Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! " remembers Swales, a fast-talking, deep-voiced, barrel-chested 29-year-old from Chesterfield, Va. He was a combat engineer in Iraq for nearly a year.

We see the world by means of our eyes, both when perceiving things directly, with the aid of a tool, or virtually. Whether one is looking at molecules through a microscope, watching television, or just observing things naturally, the sensory data always passes through one's eyes before being processed by the brain.

This is quite obvious (unless you're blind), but sensory data could possibly be passed to the thalamus (and perhaps other parts of the brain) through other means just as easily. Would one be able to tell the difference?
