Language of Perception

Everyone’s perceptual profile affects their personality as well as their language, body language as well as spoken. Perhaps the most complicated part of this is that no one is wrong.

Your reality is shaped and structured by your perceptions. It’s like your body, and it does come from your body but is projected like a shadow out into the world, and like a shadow it colours every new thing you experience.

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear as it is – infinite” William Blake (English visionary Mystic, Poet, Painter and Engraver. 1757-1827)

Perceptual Tricks

Shall we get really weird now? You can reconfigure your senses. This has even been proven in the lab recently, and I mean voluntarily reconfigure them not just use some reconditioning trick. I am doing this in my own personal… Seek More

Managing Your Perceptual Channels

Shall we get stranger? You can deliberately inhabit each of your perceptual channels. I describe it this way for a reason. While that experiment I mentioned earlier didn’t explore this, each of your sensory channels is linked to each other.… Seek More

Inhabiting the Senses

Shall we do something more holistic? I will offer my own perceptual profile. I have a general sense of un-wellness. My body tries to block out awareness of itself. I have become trained to see anything from the body as… Seek More
