- How things look verses how they actually are. How do you appear to others? Is that something you can know? How do you appear to yourself? Is our picture of reality what is actually there? Do we sometimes think we see something only to find we were mistaken? In time we only ever see events from the past, so we can only imagine the future. Is what we remember or imagine a true or complete picture of reality? Can we be tricked and fooled by what our eyes tell us is there? Do you react with emotion to what you see, or what you believe you see? Do those two pictures always align?
