Levels of Perceived Reality — Advice from 3 Sages

When we look at the reality we experience as human beings, we perceive a vast richness of possibility, development and change over time, and the things we have right here.  When we make economic agreements, we tend to collapse the reality we perceive down to the things-noun we see right here right now.  Three sages offer advice on this.

  • The source of all our problems today comes from the gap between how we think and how nature works.  Gregory Bateson.
  • A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Lewis Galantiere.
  • Don’t worry that your children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you. Robert Fulghum.
