Response to Richard Seymour

4. Elaborate on the quote from Anais Nin: “We see things not as they are but as we are”

I really like this quote because it is really true that we see things in a way that relates to each individual person.  A great example is how people see faces or objects within the clouds.  One person could see a cat in a particular cloud but another person could see something totally different within that same cloud.  Sense perception is so interesting because of this phenomenon.
