    Hi Trupeljak Ozren -

    >perception that can not be proved within that set,

    There are rules of perception?

    Science is, at root and at core, the aggregation of facts, and every fact
    is backed up by the entire universe. Religions are all cultural artifacts
    held, by rules of interaction, not perception, in universal limbo.

    None of us actually perceive gods, but, some of us cannot say call the
    emperor naked....
