I was looking at the refrigerator in my kitchen, asking myself what vision ALONE told me about my experience. I saw a lot of white color presenting itself (like the baby blue is in the above photo) before me (and a hum that was of course auditory in nature and felt so independent from the color. As if they were only connected by my thoughts which puts the pieces together and creates the illusion of a refrigerator.), when it hit me that I had never seen the back, rear sides, bottom, or the rear top of the refrigerator!
Then, I turned around and looked outwards toward my living room and noticed I couldn’t in fact see the back, or all the sides, or bottoms of ANY object! That my mind had simply filled it in thank you very much! Everything was ASSUMED to be a solid, separate, “really there” object, but in fact was never investigated. WOW! It can be quite stunning when it hits you that you NEVER see an object in it’s entirety, but only a portion of it depending on the angle you are looking from. Seeing this can be quite helpful in that it can remove a lot (if not all!) of the solidity and weight the mind tends to assume is present in objects, even though vision alone makes no such claims.
