Our ability to see reality is already an open conjecture, yes? How
'able' is 'able'?
It is not possible to see everything undistorted- that is omniscience,
and only imaginary creatures have it. Perception is always an act of
filtering an already incomplete and referentially biased input, not to
mention the fact that one cannot see oneself, perhaps the most
important player in the scene....
