Laws of perception

Recommended Posts

Hey guys what is you opinion on this:

Perception what is it? It is the way we view things, the reason some people can learn better than others because they perceive it worth learning where as others do not so they will put less effort to the task and are less likely to remember what it is they are learning.
perception is what makes us able to view the world and see things as we do but what would it be like without perception? Maybe it would be a world without mental barriers like seeing everything as a blank canvas and just being able paint anything any time. Maybe the reason people can… say do advanced math in their heads because they can perceive it not as a sum but as a puzzle and by using this view they are more likely to find the answer because they are more able to visualize it in different ways? What if then by this theory it means perception has some sway over this world but is effected by factors such as time and gravity but not others like distance because we put barriers around a space and call the thing inside distance but and use metaphorical items like cm and inches to describe it but that is just looking at a small factor of a larger whole. 
What if the reason our civilizations are still warring is because people don’t accept other perceptions so they try to force theirs on others. 
Or is perception a way people cope with things they cannot comprehend so they use their brains to create or take on another perception in which the problem is in some way explained such as our creation so people perceive religion as the answer but others perceive evolution as the reason?
Perceiver = Anything that has a perception 
There can be perceptions within perception. For example, distance as I explained earlier is a perception but it works within others like science and religion 

 Laws of perception 
Law 1. The perception depends on the perceiver
Law 2. Without a perceiver, there cannot be perception
Law 3.  Perception can only be effected by three things; Time, Laws of motion, and limits of the perceiver.
Law 4. Perceptions can cross connect with other perceptions as long as the perceiver perceives it.

Do you mean the interpretation of what they perceive based on what they have seen?  I don't know why, but I don't like the idea of assigning laws to things that are subjective or not well defined. Why does perception even need laws? Law 3 seems odd...  why can't it be effected by anything else...  or is 'anything else' covered by 'the limits of the perceiver'.

No offence - and I could be wrong as I often am - but don't see the need to assign laws to what we call perception....  the dictionary definition seems to do a fine job imo.

Yeah I agree what's the point ?

Edit

And what about halucinations, mirages , tromp l'oeil and other deceptions?

Love the picture by the way.

I perceive that you mean affected.

For someone who wants to define laws, you seem to introduce some rather arbitrary distinctions. Why is perception affected more by gravity or time than distance? We perceive gravity in many ways: the fact that things fall to the ground, our weight, our vestibular system and sense of balance. But we also perceive distance in many ways: stereoscopic vision, geometric perspective, aerial perspective, time delay (of sounds), and so on. These are all important for us building our model of the world around us. On the other hand, our perception of time is limited and very subjective.
