Part IV: Response to Hilary Lawson’s Story of visual agnosia

Hilary Lawson writes a story about visual agnosia. Visual agnosia is when someone is able to see something but unable to recognize. This seems like a very hard and scary lifestyle. It is seems very sad to go through life never knowing what purpose of things are or even what they are. Visual agnosia seems harder than being blind or deaf because at least with being blind or deaf you are able to connect with other things, but when you suffer from visual agnosia you hold no connection to the world.

Part V: 3 Theories of Reality

The three theories of reality are common sense realism, scientific realism, and phenomenalism. All  three of these theories are very different that how I view the world but if I had to chose one that seems to follow my beliefs best I would choose phenomenalism. This theory emphasizes that we see the world form human perspective but there are many other perspectives out there.

Part VI: Belief, Culture, and Mood Affecting Perception

The way we are brought up through culture and religion play a key role how we perceive the world. The more knowledge we know about that culture or religion makes us see the world from the eyes of those views, especially when you strongly believe them. One’s mood also plays a key role. When someone is angry or irritated, every little obstacle that is in there path that might not affect them on a different day will make them more angry or irritated than before. Our perception can be greatly affected by our moods, believes, and cultures.

Part VII: Sixth Sense

This “sixth sense” is a very advanced piece of technology. I belief that it can greatly influence society. It can make the everyday human life more dependent on technology. This piece of technology can also make it more easy to live human life. This new piece of tech can also cause the dropping of rating for other less advanced pieces of technology. It could be the new iPhone.



This is an example of closure. The S of USA does not have any lines truly connecting the S but the S is strongly visible.
