Perception of Reality
Every one of the five senses can be twisted to deliver a completely different picture of the world. If by picture we mean sight, sound , smell, taste and texture of things, a troubling conclusion looms. Apart from the very unreliable picture running inside the brain, we have no proof that reality is anything like what we see.

Ok I\'m thirsty .... Wouldn\'t mind a slushy:) that would make me happy :) maybe a mango one or even a five fruit tingle to make my 5 senses tingle.... Thats the perspective i need right now....:) And as i walk down the street i hope i find change in the drain so i can buy my neighbour one too.... Thats what my five senses tell me ....

The paradox-al paradigm permeates the realms of the obscured thus inhibiting reality to manifest in the presence of beingness.Only through perceptual introspection can I find my car keys.

In addition to the five senses I think you have to layer in the unreliability of emotion to perceptions of reality.

Why do you assume the pictures running inside the brain are unreliable?
