Does our perception match reality without any faults?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • Uncountable Amount of Illusions

    The claim that our perception matches reality *perfectly* is going to be rejected by anybody who's taken an intro to philosophy course. Google auditory illusion or optical illusion. There's even tactical illusions. The much more readily acceptable claim is that our perception matches reality generally, but can be fooled under certain circumstances. Then, we should believe our perceptions unless given reason to doubt it.

  • We have limited eyes.

    For one, we can't see all of the colors, due to our limited amount of color cones in our retinas. Our eyes only allow us to see at about 60 bits per second, anything quicker than that is unnoticeable. Some others have disabilities like blindness, color blindness, etc. Hope you learned something.
