as they are,

but as they appear to us.

And these appearances

are usually misleading.”

  1. In the movie, “The Life of Pi,” the young man’s father explained to his son that the “connection” he thought he saw in the tiger was his own thinking reflected back at him. I believe, to some degree, we see what we want to see, but also in reaction to past experiences. I’m sure there’s more to it, but that’s in part.
