apparent objects

Treasure MapWhat do we know of the objects of the world? This computer, the table where I sit, the chocolate covered espresso beans, the waving birch trees–look around your environment. What do we truly experience of what we see, touch, smell?

The knowing of it. That’s the whole shebang. When I touch this keyboard, I only have my perceptions of it–the apparent sight, touch, and sound. And what are sight, touch and sound?

The incomparable gift of knowing them. An immeasurable treasure.
