I have been thinking. About reality. Again. Actually, it’s a subject I think of often. Why not? It’s certainly one of those things we experience everyday. In some form.
Often it is obscured. Maybe confused. Conflicting. Definitely changing. Evolving. Subject to interpretation. Not just by others. But even within our own mind. Like many, I have read/seen/heard many quotes on the topic. I like this one because it was new to me and made me think.
A few years ago,
the city council of Monza, Italy
barred pet owners from keeping goldfish
in curved bowls,
because gazing out,
the fish would have a distorted view of reality.
how do we know
we have the true, undistorted picture of reality?
I don’t know if any such order was made in Monza but the thought that one could have been made prompts some pondering. And that is reality. For me.
