"you will find objects that disappear from sight completely, or everything will disassemble into a haze of various colors. It's going back to a
primal form of sensing, without identifying it."
Ok, been there, done that, could still do that... What is the point in that? It is not a reality that can be 'inhabited' as a corporeal being needs
to in order to survive and make sense of his environment, in other words, 'connect'. Isn't that btw exactly what Buddha did before he was finally
enlightened, almost killed himself fasting and ignoring reality? I'll soon come back to connectedness. Someone might even make the claim that the
particular type of reality, referring to your quote, is what we experience when we are born, but that is another topic altogether.
You claimed we assemble reality correctly by nature? Wouldn't everyone be enlightened then and there would be no need to have this discussion, which
btw is enjoyable so far.
Lets take a concrete example, years ago, while building in the yard, I went to fetch more planks as I ran out of building material. The planks were
stored close-by behind the shed and under a tarp. The ends of the planks were visible, so I yanked a suitable one out of the stack. It had a wasp nest
on the other end. The experience and the the mental aftermath was interesting, so to say.
So, no, most of the time, we do not perceive the boundaries of objects and their interconnectedness (nice word, English is not my native tongue).
Actually, most of the time we choose instead to neglect the fact. Very few of us are highly empathic. We shouldn't have any environmental issues as
well if we perceived the boundaries of objects correctly. Actually, we should be living in paradise if you elaborate on the concept.
Most of us don't 'meet' the environment on a daily basis, we rather meet the mental image of something and rather deal with it as anyone who has
sat on a chair with a broken leg can tell you. The chair was perfectly fine before you sat on it, wasn't it? Of course, everyone can choose how they
perceive reality, it just sounds like a dull reality looking at mind constructs with mostly unchanging properties instead of the real, vibrant
reality, where everything is unique and ultimately cannot be separated from its rightful place and background or context. In that sense, reality is
always full of meaning and is alive, even rocks will speak to you.
