all of these descriptions are for and applicable to humans only, possibly some animals or other creatures that are similar.
Other beings, if any, of different scales, sizes, abilities, needs, might have entirely different ways of describing things – if they do or have the need at all.
Our brains are too limited to handle the uniqueness of everything so we sorta have to do things this way
I think it’s quite likely if we had sufficient “bandwidth” as it were to handle the immense complexity and uniqueness of it all without having these crutches for compressing information into ‘patterns’ and such – or even needing a concept of information… there wouldn’t be a need for any of this stuff.
i anthropomorphize all of it honestly. I’m an experiencer experiencing and given a likely limited time here, i want to utilize my sense rendering features in a maximal way to my capabilities.
I’m not much for roller coasters sensations but I like the sense of tickling the brain when I get some connections that are familiar and also novel.
I had the most amazing thing happen to me about four years ago that I never had happen in my lifetime.
I started seeing faces in the back of cars.
I heard of such things: faces in cars. Tried to see them. Never could. I just saw headlamps, hood lines, front or back.
Forgot about it for a long time.
One day, I’m passing by cars and I get ‘feelings’ coming off of them. Moods. They’re EXPRESSIVE. I can see faces! Happy faces, mean faces, scary faces, ethnic faces.
All kinds of faces in the backs of cars – and fronts too but backs especially.
Mid 40s and I get a new ability. Instead of seeing separates, I see new wholes. So, I’m enjoying it. It’s a new power for the last four years that PROBABLY comes naturally to most people.
I did my share of LSD in my 20s and I got lots of great special fx. Figures mostly. Little stick figures. Loved light halos.
But not faces. Probably autistic spectrum or something here.
Always saw lots of colors and had auditory hallucinations without drugs – probably due to deafness which means the mind HAS to constantly hear things that may or may not really be there just in the process of interpreting reality.
vision, my mind has had to create a huge chunk of reality in a real-time, online basis.
It limits what I can do somethings. Can’t do large gatherings and function because there’s too much to process with limited input mechanisms.
But in reasonable circumstances, I do ok. Hearing things is always fun: it’s like a constant barrage of dad-jokes as I _think_ I heard a funny word choice from the person talking but knowing their personality I know it’s a regular word and so I have to quickly figure out what it _probably_ was.
Lots of guessing.
