Serge Patlavskiy Posted 23 days ago Donald Hoffman: Do we see reality as it is? "Reality as it is" -- it is Noumenal Reality. We cannot see it in principle, and we can only postulate its existence. Due to seeing, hearing, etc. every person constructs in mind his/her personal version of the model of Noumenal Reality. The model of Noumenal Reality is called Phenomenal Reality. Therefore, for me, the very question "Do we see reality as it is?" is incorrect in principle.
