Essays on Perception
How is it that people see, and describe with conviction, that this drawing is of a bee sleeping, a heart on an antique bench, a cuddle fish with a hand puppet, a deflated circus tent, a leather bladder resting on a sunflower seed tin, a Viking helmet, an octopus, a uterus on a pedestal, fiddleheads, an Asian pear, a Greek altar with a sacrificial offering, bagpipes, the top of an elaborately decorated cupcake, childbirth, Mother Nature, a saint who spends their life on a column, a homunculus, a turkey fu**ing an umbrella, and a hippopotamus? Does that strike you as odd?
@erendwolfe was the first person to throw down a guess. “Fiddleheads and an Asian pear on a bed of sunflowers.”
@leximartinrealator was the first person to suggest an octopus which is not a bad guess. When I met her, I was painting a giant octopus and it makes sense that she would see that. She is also highly intelligent like an octopus.
@andybswift threw down two of the best guesses I’ve ever heard - “Very FULL bagpipes! Was my initial guess however on closer inspection it’s the top of cupcake or muffin decorated elaborately.”
Entrain your mind to see the correct perception of reality, the one that is in alignment with the truth.
