Tomas Lagūnavičius – Fake Gold 1
Fake Gold 1
The human cognitive system is the place where meanings and perceptions are being created. In reality, the world is black, white, gray, and odorless. Only our system of senses creates colors, shades, contrasts, gives meaning to what we see. Those sensations cause us feelings and experiences. Without them we would not be able to delegate meanings to them. Sometimes we turn what we see into gold and give meanings, even though we don’t know whether things are real or fake. The purple outburst of color creates what we very rarely see in nature. Do we need it? Is this real? Maybe it’s just an artificial illusion and we’re doomed to believe in things that don’t exist.
